What Affects Your Pickering Home Insurance?
Insurance companies look at many different things when pricing out your home insurance premiums. Here is a short list:
1. Age of your home. If your home is older and needs some updates, the insurance company will charge you higher premiums or may reject you all together.
2. Prior claims. If you had claims on your property in the recent years, companies will surcharge you for that.
3. Prior insurance. If this is the first time you are getting property insurance, the company may view you as a newer homeowner and charge you a little more.
4. Finished basement. If you have a finished basement, it is important that you mention that. A finished basement means your home value is higher which will require a slightly higher premium.
5. High Flood Zone Area. If your home is in an area that is deemed a high flood risk by the insurance company, they may charge extra for water coverage, limit the water damage coverage or completely reject water protection. When getting multiple quotes from insurance companies, be sure you are quoting the same coverage.
6. Property Policy Type. As mentioned before, you must select the proper policy type for accurate rates. A standard homeowners insurance policy may be less expensive than a rented dwelling policy. Condo insurance policies are usually much cheaper than a home insurance policy.
Home Insurance policies do not offer water damage coverage as a standard policy inclusion. You must specifically request them.
The two most important coverages are: Overland Water and Sewer Backup.
These are the most common water losses insurance companies suffer so be sure to include them in your policy.

Home Insurance Tips
Pickering Rented Dwelling and Condo Insurance
Selecting the correct home insurance policy is the first step of obtaining a proper quote. If you are purchasing a home to rent out as an investment, you will require a rented dwelling or rented condo insurance policy.
A standard home insurance policy is created for a home owner who currently lives in that home. The insurance company assumes that the owner will take good care of the home and therefore posses a lesser risk.
The moment you have a tenant in the home and you no longer reside there, you must switch your insurance policy to a rented version. Failing to do this can completely nullify your insurance policy.
If you are planning on renting out the basement of your primary home, you may not require another policy. Simply explain your situation to the insurance company and you may only require a “rented basement” endorsement on your current policy. This will be much less expensive than a separate policy.
