  22. 22. @volitionproperties Should you prune your portfolio? ● What are your goals? ● Does this property map to your goals? ● If you refi at 80% LTV will it still cashflow? ● Do you want to take your investing to the next level (ie. from condo to multifamily)?
  23. 23. @volitionproperties Case Study: CityPlace Condo ● Purchase price: $305,800 ● 2007 pre-construction, registered in 2010 ● First rented for $1,850 including parking + locker ● Cashflow positive the entire time ● Only 2-3 weeks of vacancy when the owner did cosmetic renos ● 823 sqft 2 bed + den, 2 bath, 2 balconies ● Parking and locker
  24. 24. @volitionproperties Case Study: CityPlace Condo ● The unit has run its course ● The owner had already pulled equity to buy another property a few years ago ● Is now looking to re-allocate equity to real estate that provides more opportunity to create value (major reno or development), which is difficult to do with a condo

  27. 27. © 2017 HUB International Limited. 27 © 2017 HUB International Limited. 27 Advocacy. Tailored Insurance Solutions. Peace of Mind Volition Properties Coverage pitfalls to look out for in your investment property insurance policy
  28. 28. © 2017 HUB International Limited. 28 Most Common Pitfalls • Named Perils/Fire & Extended Coverage vs. Broad Form Coverage • Actual Cash Value vs. Replacement Cost • Permission for vacancy period • Limited Coverage during vacancy • Vandalism caused by tenants • Rental Income Insurance • Sewer Back-up, Flood & Earthquake, and failure of sump pump coverage.
  29. 29. © 2017 HUB International Limited. 29 Named Perils/Fire & Extended Coverage vs. Broad Form There are two forms that your investment property may be currently insured under: • Named Perils Coverage This form is limited to the causes of loss that are named on the policy. Named Perils form is a more “restrictive” coverage form. You do not get as much coverage as you would get on a Broad form. OR • Broad Form Coverage This form is highly recommended as it covers “all causes of loss” unless excluded.
  30. 30. © 2017 HUB International Limited. 30 Actual Cash Value vs. Replacement Cost Methods by which your insurance company may calculate the settlement amount are as follows; • Replacement Cost is the cost to replace the property with new materials of like kind and quality, without depreciation. This is the most favorable. • Actual Cash Value is the cost to replace the property minus deduction for depreciation. Also known as market value. It represents the dollar amount you could expect to receive for the item if you sold it in the marketplace excluding the land value.
  31. 31. © 2017 HUB International Limited. 31 Vacancy Allowance Period Most policies have an exclusion on the policy that indicates that if the home was vacant for more than 30 consecutive days, a loss would not be covered. You must notify your insurance broker if your property is vacant for more than 30 days. They will have to add a vacancy permit to your policy. There is typically a charge for this. However, some insurance packages designed specifically for investment properties may have a longer vacancy period allowance. This is certainly helpful considering a rental property may be vacant until tenants are found. • Conditions to keep in mind relating to this permission: • All doors and windows be securely closed and locked. • All rubbish be removed from within the described buildings and premises. • Buildings must be checked a minimum of once a week or more depending. • You have shut off the water supply and drained the system and appliance of water, or you have maintained heat in the building and have made arrangements to assure heat is continued.
  32. 32. © 2017 HUB International Limited. 32 Damage/Vandalism Caused by Tenants • This is a common exclusion on most rental property policies. You retain the loss if your tenants damage or vandalize the building. It is recommended that you double check with your insurance carrier to ensure that this is included. • Damages can be significant. From our experience we notice this is most common during an eviction process.
  33. 33. © 2017 HUB International Limited. 33 Rental Income Insurance • After an insured loss and during the period of restoration, rental income insurance will reimburse you for the rental income that you were getting prior to the loss. Check with your insurance broker or agent to be certain that you have this coverage. • Is the Rental Income Insurance on an Actual Loss Sustained basis? Actual Loss Sustained basis means that there is no limit on the rental income. However, this does not mean an unlimited source of payment for your loss. The loss must still be proven and the proof is the amount that will be paid. • There is also a limit as to when the rental income coverage is paid out. For example,12- 24 months. It varies between policies.
  34. 34. © 2017 HUB International Limited. 34 Sewer Back-Up, Flood & Earthquake Always ensure you have these as part of your insurance package. • Sewer back up – Loss or damage caused directly by the backing up of sewers, sumps or drains. • Flood – waves, tides, tidal waves, and the rising of, the breaking out or the overflow of any body of water, whether natural or man made. • Earthquake – snowslide, landslide, or other earth movements occuring concurrently with and directly resulting from an earthquake shock.
  35. 35. © 2017 HUB International Limited. 35 Tenants Insurance Recommendation • Always recommend that your tenants have tenants insurance. It is not uncommon to ask for a copy of their policy for your own peace of mind. • If there is a loss and the tenants are negligent, your insurance company can recover the loss from their insurance company if they are insured. This avoids the payout from showing on your record. • If there is a slip and fall incident and your tenant was negligent, it will likely be your policy that responds if your tenant does not carry insurance. Even if there is no payout, there is still defence costs that are involved in lawsuits. This means that the claim will be shown on your loss history report, hence could result in higher insurance premiums on renewal.
  36. 36. © 2017 HUB International Limited. 36 How much should you insure your building for? • You should insure your building for the amount of money it would cost to re-build the structure. The cost of land or the market value of the property does not have any bearing on the cost to rebuild. • Don’t forget to take into consideration Detached Structures – Coverage for sheds, detached garages and other structures not connected to the main dwelling itself.
  37. 37. © 2017 HUB International Limited. 37 Contents Insurance Limit • You should insure your contents for the figure it would cost to replace them. Being a “landlord”, there may be some items such as appliances and furniture that you own and would want to replace following an insured loss. • The tenant should be insuring their own contents. Your policy does not cover their contents.
