Home Business Protector
Your regular property insurance policy may not cover items you use to run a home business. OTIP's Home Business Protector offers coverage for:
Sewer Back-Up/Water Endorsement
Coverage for sewer back-up/water varies depending on where you live. Contact an OTIP customer service representative at 1-866-561-5559 for information on different coverage levels and rates in your area.
Overland Water Protection
If you have sewer back-up protection, you can also purchase overland water protection. This protects your property from loss or damages should water enter your property as a result of heavy rains, spring run-off or overflowing lakes or rivers.
Municipalities sometimes enact bylaws that mandate certain rebuilding or repairs. All of our dwelling policies exclude loss or increased repair costs arising as a result. The bylaw coverage extension overrides the bylaw exclusion, up to a maximum of $100,000 and may be added to all residential policy types except Tenant insurance.
Specialized Coverage for Special Needs
At OTIP, we recognize certain items and situations fall outside a standard home insurance policy. That’s why our dedicated team of experts offer a wide variety of solutions to meet any need, from short-term storage and buildings under construction to vacant homes and special event requirements.
† You must insure your primary residence with OTIP to qualify for this benefit.
Save on home insurance when you qualify for discounts.
You may qualify for a discount if your home is less than 30 years old.
If there are no mortgages or liens on your property, a discounted rate may apply.
With an exemplary claims history, you’ll pay less.
