Unique and Unusual Properties

Register for the webinar

Partly due to skyrocketing real estate prices, but also due to concerns for the environment, and a yearning for a simpler life, the tiny homes movement has taken off, and with it, concerns about the proper way to insure tiny structures.

Laneway homes, which are homes built into pre-existing lots, can help increase urban density and (theoretically) moderate house prices in urban cities, including Vancouver and Toronto, but what is the best way to insure them?

And while insurance products readily exist to cover heritage and high-value homes, concerns about underinsurance and replacement cost value are extremely common. Heritage homes have many unique characteristics (think hand-carved elements) that are difficult to assess and include in property evaluations, while high-value properties often raise questions about whether adequate replacement cost coverage is in place.

Join our panel of experts for a discussion of the wide range of unique properties from coast to coast. We will be talking about underwriting considerations, new insurance products and their features, and will provide claims examples.

Who should attend this webinar:
Join the webinar if you are a broker, claims or underwriting professional, to get the most up to date information about unique and unusual properties, how to properly insure them, and how to talk to your clients about them.
