Do you own a condo unit?

Then you need a condominium insurance policy to protect all the things that your condo corporation’s policy doesn’t.

Available for purchase online, insurance for condominium unit owners covers your personal property and improvements to your unit. Our condominium insurance also includes liability coverage in case you accidentally injure someone or damage their property.

Insurance for condominium unit owners

Our condominium insurance policy comes with the advantage of all-risk insurance. So it covers most accidents that could damage your property, for example:

  • Your condo is destroyed by fire
  • Someone breaks into your condo while you’re on vacation
  • Your dishwasher or washing machine breaks and causes water damage

 

All-risk insurance covers accidents most people don't think of when buying insurance. For example:

  • Your fridge falls down the stairs on moving day
  • Your entertainment unit collapses because you didn’t put it together right, and your TV and DVR crash to the ground
  • You kick over a bucket of paint onto your couch
  • You drop your laptop and it breaks

With all-risk insurance, improvements to your condo, such as kitchen upgrades, are also covered.

Additional living expenses

In the event of an insured loss, like a fire or water damage that forces you out of your home, Desjardins Insurance covers your additional living expenses.

  • Additional living expenses are the extra costs you have to pay because you can’t stay in your home during repairs.

Liability coverage for condo owners

Liability coverage protects you if you’re responsible for accidentally injuring others or damaging their property, for instance:

  • You accidentally damage someone else's property (for example, your bathtub overflows and causes water damage to the neighbour's home below).
  • You leave a candle burning and it starts a fire that damages your unit and the fire spreads next door.
  • Your pet injures someone (for example, your dog bites a visitor).

Your liability coverage also covers legal fees if someone files a bodily injury or property damage lawsuit against you.

Basic liability insurance is $1 million. You can increase this amount up to $5 million under certain conditions.
