If you own a condominium, Condo Insurance in Winnipeg is a great option to financially protect you from any unfortunate events that happen to your condo.

Why Do I Need It?
Many people wonder if they need Condo Insurance as the condominium building overall should have their own insurance. However, the shared insurance policy typically only covers the common areas (such as the lobby, gym and elevator). Therefore, excluding your personal belongings and any improvements made to your unit. Additionally, the shared insurance policy may not provide any liability coverage and so will not protect you against any claims made against you. Condo Homeowners Insurance is a great option to provide that additional layer of protection.
If there was a major repair required to your unit, you may be liable for the costs. Imagine the cost of a burst pipe in your apartment which then spreads to other units. If you don’t have Condo Home Insurance, you could be responsible to pay the entire shared insurance policy deductible which could be tens of thousands of dollars. In addition, depending on the shared insurance policy you may also be liable to cover the repair costs.
