Bi-Law Protection

Over the years Bi-Laws have changed several times and can be different for every city and town. Some homes were built when certain bi-laws were in effect but have changed since that time. Did you know that if something were to happen to your home that would cause a rebuild/major repair the new bi-laws would be in effect? For instance, in most cities basement walls must be insulated according to a bi-law. If you had an older home that had to be rebuilt due to a claim the bi-laws for the present time would have to be followed, even if the home did not have insulated walls prior to the claim.

The purpose of insurance is to “put a person back into the same position as they were prior to a claim”. This means that new bi-laws that would change certain elements of a home today may not be covered under your policy and you may have to pay out of pocket to bring the home up to the current standard.
