Home Insurance in Saskatchewan — What You Need to Know

You will need the following information to ensure quote accuracy:

  • Square footage of your home
  • Year your home was built
  • Details on any upgrades or modifications
  • Your exact address
  • Your personal home insurance claims history

In Saskatchewan, home insurance prices in Saskatchewan are determined by a few key factors:

  • Insurance data - The home insurance carriers in your area, both city and province, will have compiled data over the years relating to the amount of home insurance claims in your area. If you’re fortunate enough to live in an area where there hasn’t been many claims, then your home insurance rates will be lower, all things equal, compared to someone that lives in an area where there have been frequent home insurance claims.
  • The value of your home - This is important as the company insuring your home will need to know the potential replacement cost of your home. Of course, they and you both hope they’ll never need to replace your home due to a claim.
  • Your home insurance history - Home insurers are interested in your personal, prior home insurance claims history. If applicable, be prepared to share your most recent 10 years of home insurance history. If you don’t have 10 years of home insurance history, you’ll need to disclose however many years you have.

As an online insurance marketplace, our interest is earning your business through providing you the best home insurance rates and service. We know the top reason a person will switch their home insurance policy from one carrier to another is price. This is why our Surex Personal Assistant’s do all they can to find you home insurance discounts.

Depending where you live in Saskatchewan, some home insurance coverages might be required in a home insurance policy. For instance, if you live in an area that has high winds, windstorm coverage might be mandatory in a home insurance policy.

If you’re curious about other potential coverages you can add to your home insurance policy, that aren’t required, your Surex Personal Assistant will be able to explain the benefits of adding coverage, as well as let you know how it’ll impact your annual home insurance premiums in Saskatchewan.

  • Personal home insurance history - The home insurer you choose to place your home insurance business with will need to know your past home insurance claims history. If applicable, they’ll need to know your most recent ten years of home insurance claims history.
  • Bill payment history - The home insurer you choose to place your business with will need to know your history of paying your home insurance bills. If you have a good track record, you’ll be able to choose whether you pay your annual home insurance premiums monthly or annually.
  • Claims - This relates to the amount of home insurance claims insurers have had, or haven’t had, in your area. If you live in an area with minimal claims, then your home insurance will be less — all things equal — compared to a home in an area that has frequent home insurance claims.
  • Coverage - Depending on where you live in Saskatchewan, some home insurance coverages will be mandatory by the home insurer you’re looking to place your business with.
  • Options - If a home insurance coverage isn’t mandatory, then you can choose whether to add it to your home insurance policy or not. Again, we want you to have the exact home insurance policy to match your needs. This is why we don’t do cookie-cutter home insurance policies.
  • Deductible amount - The most common home insurance deductible amount in Saskatchewan is $3000. This is the amount you, the insured, would need to pay — out of your own pocket — to activate your home insurance policy, in the event of a home insurance claim.
  • Upgrades - If you live in an older home in Saskatchewan and do certain upgrades, you can be eligible to lower your annual home insurance premium amount by up to 10%. These upgrades would include upgrading outdated electrical, upgrading your home’s plumbing and/or installing a sump pump or backflow valve.
  • Security system - If you’re considering securing your home with a certified home automation system, this is a great way to protect your family as well as become eligible for a home security discount. A home security discount can save you up to 10% off your annual home insurance premium amount.

Do you have questions about home insurance in Saskatchewan?

Homeowners insurance in Saskatchewan protects you and your home in the event of a home insurance claim. If you didn’t have homeowners insurance, then you would be held 100% responsible for any damages or loss.

If you’re actively paying off your home’s mortgage or loan, there is an extremely high chance that homeowners insurance is required, as per your mortgage contract.

The amount you pay for homeowners insurance is dictated by a few things, including:

  • The amount of home insurance coverage in Saskatchewan you choose to have
  • The, potential, replacement cost of your home
  • Home insurance data, specific to your area (city and province)
  • Your personal home insurance claims history (if you’ve had multiple prior home insurance claims, expect to pay more compared to someone that has a clean home insurance claims history)

If you have a history of paying your insurance bills on time, then you’ll be able to choose whether you pay your annual home insurance premiums monthly or annually. If you’ve had your home insurance cancelled in the past, due to non-payments, then there’s a good chance the home insurer you choose to place your business with will require you to pay for your annual home insurance premiums upfront for the year.

You’re at the exact right spot to get your home insurance in Saskatchewan! As soon as you start a quote on our online home insurance marketplace, you’ll be assigned a Surex Personal Assistant to help you complete and set up your home insurance policy.

If you choose to add more home insurance coverage than what is required in your area, your home insurer will not stop you from doing that, if you choose. Rather than deny home insurance coverage, some insurers may make certain coverages mandatory. For instance, if you live in an area with high winds, insurers may mandate having windstorm coverage, as they’ve experienced a lot of windstorm claims in your area.

Home insurance coverage in Saskatchewan is not included in the closing costs of a new home. If you’re closing a deal on a new home and know the possession date, you’ll want to get a home insurance policy effective for the first day you take possession of your new home. You can do this in advance of actually moving into your new home.
