When more water than usual is flowing through the water supply system, sewers can fill up and overflow. This typically happens when there is a heavy rainfall, melting snow, a sudden thaw, or a rise in the water table. Backwater valves can help prevent this kind of loss.
Liability protection means your insurance carrier will hire a lawyer to defend you, and pay covered damages you are found liable for, in the event someone claims to be injured due to your actions or negligence, or there is property damage to someone else’s property caused by your actions or negligence. Make sure to read your policy. If you experience an incident that may fall under this coverage, then make a claim by calling your insurance carrier.
Your policy limits for coverage should be determined by the value of your personal property. If you own jewelry items that are worth considerably more than your deductible, let us know and we will be happy provide a quote if you’d like to add them to your contents.
That’s entirely up to you. Additional Coverage can provide you with protection over and above your base policy coverages like accidental loss, damage, and theft.
Your base policy covers your jewelry for a specific amount in total (be sure to check your policy to confirm the limits). So, sumup your jewels, and if it’s more than the amount you’re covered for, you may need additional coverage.
This is the amount that will be deducted from any claim settlement you may receive. And the higher the deductible, the lower your annual or monthly policy premium will be.
The primary purpose of purchasing insurance protection is to be able to make a claim for a covered mishap when and if it occurs. It is true that an at-fault claim can result in an adjustment to your premium or coverage availability upon policy renewal.
However, most insurance companies today offer an option to buy a claims protection endorsement that will waive the impact of your first accident on your insurance premium. Each insurance company has their own guidelines on the availability of this endorsement, so ask your insurance broker if you qualify to purchase it.
Not-at-fault claims or comprehensive claims will not generally cause your insurance cost to rise, but a frequency of these sort of claims could result in higher deductibles or the withdrawal of optional coverage.
Always contact your insurance broker to be clear on the impact of a claim on your auto insurance cost.
Traffic tickets will, in most cases, have some impact on your insurance cost. The severity and number of the tickets will be the determining factor on the size of the increase in your insurance cost. Serious violations can result in the non-renewal of your insurance policy. Most insurance companies will charge for traffic violations that have been registered on your driver’s license in the past 36 months from the date of your policy application or policy renewal.
When your child obtains their G1 license, it is recommended that you notify your insurance broker of your child’s achievement and add them to your policy as a listed driver. However, it is not mandatory to do so at this time, and there will be no increase in your insurance premium costs for adding a G1 driver. On the other hand, when your child obtains their G2 license, then they must be accounted for on your auto insurance policy bylaw. Adding a G2 driver to an insurance policy does apply a premium charge to your policy. The amount of this charge will depend on the number of vehicles and drivers that already exist in your household.
A grace period of 60 days is granted for the payment of any premium falling due, during which period the Insurance will remain in force. If any premium is not paid within the grace period, the Insurance will terminate.

No it will not. One of the main advantages of working with Simplinsur and our brokers is that your coverage is portable, which means it remains in place should you change lenders.
Yes, portability of existing coverage must be within 90 days between homes in the case of selling one home and moving into another.
Yes, the intention of the portability feature is to maintain existing coverage if you move your mortgage from one property to another or from one lender to another. The original coverage stays in effect if the mortgage is refinanced or transferred/switched to a new mortgage either with the same lender or a new lender. You can apply for coverage on the new money advanced. Example:
- $200,000 mortgage
- TD is the lender and Simplinsur is in effect
- Refinanced 5 years later with TD
- New mortgage: $240,000
- Additional coverage required: $40,000
