Gérer un sinistre ne se résume pas à appeler son assureur et attendre la suite des choses. En cas de sinistre, seriez-vous prêt à y faire face?
Co-ownership claims are numerous: water leak, water damage, vandalism, fire, etc. If the loss affects the common and private portions of the co-ownership, it is up to the board of directors to take care of the claim of loss with the insurer of the syndicate and the repair of the latter. Effective management of a loss requires the implementation of prompt and effective actions so that your building is repaired in the best delays. This article is a summary, of the precautions to be taken and a check list of things to do once you become aware of a loss, whether in a private or common portion of your immovable.
After being victims of a loss, the members of the board of directors and the affected co-owners are often caught off guard. How will things unfold? There is no need to worry or panic, because in principle, once the notice of loss completed, various stakeholders get involved: the insurer of the syndicate, but also that of co-owners and lessees, who will respectively designate their own claim adjuster. Generally the co-owners affected by a loss, as well as the syndicate, believe that making a claim is always the right thing to do. This is true in many cases, but sometimes the syndicate might want to refrain from doing so.
