Why are Strata Insurance Premiums Rising?

For those of you who own strata, the latest concern over Strata Insurance costs rising so drastically is of key interest. The REBGV released a video explaining why insurance rates are soaring, below is a brief summary.More...
Why the rising prices now?
Catastrophic losses have steadily risen in Canada for severe weather losses (350% increase), claims costs have doubled since 2014 at a steady increase. Insurance companies use interest rates on investments to generate revenue, if difficult conditions like this last 1-2 years they can absorb costs, but 3+ years of this means they need to reconsider their risks. Most insurers are currently operating at a loss, paying out more than they’re collecting in premiums, causing a hard market.
 
What do purchasers and sellers need to know?
Knowing as much as possible about the strata corporation including:
  • requesting a summary of their current insurance program and details of any claims in past 5 years
  • ensuring that the property has a depreciation report, that there’s a plan of action in the report and funding being undertaken
  • understanding maintenance programs, reviewing bylaws to ensure that strata corp takes responsibility
  • check for visible loss prevention programs (sprinkler head cages, etc)
  • reach out to individual insurance brokers regarding Unit Owner Insurance to bridge/dovetail the strata insurance
