Budget for a new insurance policy for strata properties!


Have you budget for a new insurance policy for strata properties?


Tip! Budget for 25% increase


The strata corporations that have recently renewed their insurance and saw premium increases of between 50% and 100%.


Low-risk building with a good insurance history, an insurance company charges between $0.13 and $0.15 per $100 of insured property. High-risk buildings are old and poorly maintained.


Average losses now cost more than $50,000, and 54% of losses claimed are worth more than $100,000. 


It’s really a case of supply and demand!


The number of insurance providers willing to protect residential strata properties in the Lower Mainland has been shrinking over the last 12 to 18 months.


That replacement has been very difficult!...

How to save money during the COVID-19 pandemic


Are you scrambling to pay bills or your mortgage?


- defer your mortgage up to six months

- if you have a traditional mortgage you can actually skip a payment without penalty

- look into reward points in order to use “some of those points to pay back your credit cards.”

- look through your gift cards, subscriptions and anywhere you can cut back


- change car insurance over to personal use under 15km

- set yourselves up for the Canada Emergency Response Benefit by going to the CRA website. This is $2000 per month for Canadians whose livelihoods have been affected by COVID-19.

- RRSPs should be a last resort

Here is a summary of Canada’s emergency benefits during this crazy time!
