Home insurance = peace of mind 

Saint John, Canada's oldest incorporated city, is located on the Bay of Fundy and home to over 70,000 people. It is a popular tourist destination, known for its historic sites, cultural attractions and natural wonders, such as the reversing rapids, a phenomenon caused by bay tides colliding with the Saint John River. There is lots to do and see from the City Market where you can find food and craft stalls from local vendors and artisans, visit the New Brunswick Museum, as well as the 1913 Imperial Theatre for plays, concerts and dancing! For the outdoor enthusiast, you can hike the many trails of Rockwood Park and a peninsula trail that takes you through Irving Nature Park where you can explore salt marshes, volcanic rock and forests.

Home insurance is not legally required in Canada, especially for those who have paid off their home. But, it is mandatory for those who need to get a mortgage. Since buying a home is one of the biggest investments people make, it's important to consider getting homeowners insurance to protect the place they live, raise a family and keep their belongings. These are all things that a homeowners insurance policy can cover and we can help with that.

Have questions? We've got answers:

In rare cases, you can denied home coverage by insurance companies. Usually, this would be due to risks that the insurance company deems to be too dangerous or potentially too costly. These risks could include severe and sustained weather conditions, compromised structural quality of the home, or extremely high neighbourhood crime rates. This is another reason why comparing coverage options on Surex.com is so helpful — if you’re denied coverage by one company, you can keep looking until you find a provider who will meet your needs.

Home insurance typically comes in three forms: (1) Comprehensive or All Perils, (2) Basic or Named Perils, and (3) Broad. Comprehensive is the most complete form of coverage available, protecting your home against all threats (excluding those which require additional coverage — such as high-value items and water damage — and those specifically left off your policy). Basic coverage protects your home and its contents against those threats that have been specifically added to your policy. Broad coverage is a combination of the previous two, protecting your property in a ‘comprehensive’ sense, and protecting your belongings in a ‘basic’ sense. Speak with a qualified Dedicated Insurance Assistant about what home insurance coverage type is right for your property.

Home insurance rates in Saint John are impacted by a range of variables, including: age and location of home, type of home, home construction details, replacement cost of home, personal claims history, coverages selected, deductible amount, value of possessions, nature of home improvements, neighbourhood crime rate, and home safety and security features.

It doesn’t happen every time someone purchases a policy, but sometimes an insurance company will send an inspector to examine your property. Here are a few things they might request to look at: the condition of your roof, your home’s electrical wiring, your home’s plumbing (pipes older than 50 years are especially of concern), oil tanks for heating (these can cause costly problems, especially if they leak), and open fireplaces or wood-burning stoves (a specialized technician may need to inspect fire hazards for safety and proper installation).
