IBC is actively working to offer insurance stakeholders information and tools to better understand condo insurance, the recent legislative amendment and settling divided co-ownership claims, so that they can, in turn, adequately inform consumers.
Settling divided co-ownership claims
See our microsite at co-ownership.bac-quebec.qc.ca to better understand this important process in co-ownership insurance.
The process for settling divided co-ownership claims
The process shown below (also available in the Settling divided co-ownership claims microsite) determines whether the damage suffered is covered by the contract of the syndicate, co-owner, or a third party responsible. It is based on the insurance forms suggested by IBC.
Decision tree for damage to the property insured by the syndicate
The process presented below (also available in the Settling divided co-ownership claims microsite) shows the options and recources available to a syndicate under different situations.
