Earthquake Deductible Buy-Back Insurance
There are nearly 5,000 recorded earthquakes in Canada each year. According to the Insurance Bureau of Canada, there is a 30% chance that the big one will hit somewhere in Canada within the next 50 years, most likely along the west coast. In its simplest form, Earthquake insurance in Canada covers the loss or damage caused to the property and its contents caused by the shaking of the earth. Earthquake coverage may be purchased separately as an add-on to your home, or condo policy, and it is subject to a higher deductible than coverage for other items.
Has Your Earthquake Deductible Increased?
Did you know that in the event of an Earthquake, your Earthquake Deductible could be up to 15% of the value of your home or condo? Depending on that value, it could cost you $50,000, $80,000 or even more to cover earthquake damage. And you would be responsible for that entire amount.
We are proud to be one of the few brokers in BC to offer Earthquake Deductible Buy-Back Coverage which enables you to ‘buy down’ your Earthquake deductible, in the event of a major earthquake.
