Agreement on claims settlement of condominiums
To facilitate the settlement of claims involving condominiums
(divided co-ownership), a situation which involves several insurers, IBC has
drafted an Agreement to which insurers can adhere on a voluntary basis.
The Agreement has two separate components:
This component establishes an order of priority for the payment of certain
damages and related expenses in order to ensure a complete, efficient and
harmonious settlement among the insurers, while respecting the rights of the
insured. Insurers who are signatories to the Schedule Respecting Indemnity
Sharing (Schedule) avoid the many difficulties encountered when settling claims
affecting the private portions and common portions of condominium buildings.
Waiver of subrogation
This Agreement also offers insurers the possibility of waiving their right of
subrogation against the insurers of other condominium owners and against their
insureds. Note that this waiver does not apply to damage resulting from a
criminal or intentional act or impact by a vehicle. Insurers who have waived
subrogation avoid the delays and complications involved in recourse before the
Signatories to the Agreement
An insurer may adhere fully to the Agreement and thus agrees to settle a claim
according to the Schedule and the waiver of subrogation. An insurer may also
adhere only to the Schedule of the Agreement.
Below is the list of signatories, by level of adherence:
