Condominium insurance

Two insurance policies are in effect for condominiums, one for each co-owner's private portion and one for the condominium syndicate's portion.

The co-owners' insurance covers:

  • Personal property
  • Civil liability
  • Improvements made since the construction

The syndicate insurance covers:

  • Common portions: lobbies, corridors, stairs, roof, etc.
  • "Building" portion of the private portions: walls, floors, windows, etc.
  • Civil liability of the condominium syndicate

In case of loss, these two policies could split the compensation.

It's important to consult your declaration of co-ownership to know exactly which insurance covers each part of the building.
