Cottage Insurance

If you are looking to insure a vacation or second home in or around Ottawa, your insurance needs are unique. Scrivens Insurance and Investment Solutions can help!

At a minimum, your lender will require that you carry hazard insurance to protect your property against damage from theft, fire, flooding, or windstorms. It is also a good idea to add liability insurance, which covers you and members of your household for accidental injuries to your visitors. Opting for property plus liability insurance adds up to a standard homeowners insurance package. For an extra layer of protection, a personal umbrella liability policy extends your liability coverage for properties named in the policy.

Top ways to save: If your second home is typically unoccupied for periods of time, it’s worth investing in items that create insurance discounts to offset the cost of your premium. This includes smoke detectors, fire extinguishers, deadbolt locks, and a central alarm system for burglaries and fire that rings to an outside service.
