Don’t let earthquake deductibles collapse your finances.
As the owner of a high-value commercial property, private home, or as a property manager or executive in a strata corporation, here’s what you should know about earthquake insurance deductibles.
- In areas of high earthquake risk—such as Vancouver Island—earthquake deductibles can be far higher than the standard deductibles on your policy
- Earthquake insurance deductibles are usually not a fixed amount but a fixed percentage of the property limit of insurance on your policy, often 10% – 20%.
In the event of an earthquake, the property owner is required to cover the full amount of the deductible for both the property and contents.
