We also Have Cottages...

If you own a cottage, you know the importance of having a place to get away and spend time with family and friends. Whether it is for a weekend, the summer or a full-time residence, a cottage is an investment in yourself and those you care about. You want to protect this investment, not only for financial reasons, but to preserve this special place and all its memories. If you live in or around Ontario, cottage insurance is an important way to ensure protection of your cottage and its contents.

Also known as recreational property insurance, cottage insurance covers the structure and contents of your cottage, much like homeowners insurance. There is a difference, however, in that insurers often take several factors into consideration when determining your policy. These are factors such as: how frequently the property is used, how often it is occupied and whether or not it is rented to others. Answering these questions will also help determine what kind of coverage you want. Sometimes, an insurer will only insure your cottage if they insure your primary residence as well.

Due to the fact that cottages are often only occupied part-time, insurance coverage differs from that of a regular homeowners policy. Coverage is usually provided as a named perils policy, rather than a comprehensive policy. This means that you have coverage for specific named risks such as fire, smoke damage or an explosion. Other certain risks, such as flooding or vandalism, may not be covered or may be more expensive or difficult to insure. This is usually because of the part-time occupancy; it can take longer for this kind of damage to be discovered, leading to greater repair expenses.

It is important to maintain liability coverage for your cottage, as well. This type of coverage protects you in case someone gets hurt on your property or if you cause damage to a neighbor's property. Even if you are only there part of the year or on weekends, it's impossible to predict when an accident may occur, so having adequate coverage is very important.

You will also want to find out what other specific items are covered (or not) through your policy. This includes outbuildings such as a garage, shed or boathouse. Items like these may not be included in the policy or may have limited coverage. Personal items and contents of your cottage may be covered, but only if they remain permanently there. Items that you take back and forth with you, such as clothing, would be covered under your regular homeowners policy. If you own a boat, canoe or other watercraft, this may also be covered or have limited coverage. Be sure to check with your agent to find out exactly what is covered and what is not, so there will be no surprises down the road.

Your cottage in Ontario is a source of relaxation, fun and great memories. Don't leave any of that to chance by not obtaining proper and adequate insurance coverage. Whether is it part-time, full-time or only sometimes, your cottage is your home away from home and needs the same kind of consideration and protection. Contact an agent today to find out which policy is right for you. It is worth the effort and expense to protect your investment for yourself and those you love.
