A Vacant House Can Leave You Uninsured

Many homeowners are not aware that standard home insurance frequently does not cover damage incurred while a house is vacant or not inspected regularly. Consequently, our residential home watch service provides you with a house visit schedule required by your insurance company. The last thing you need when you return from vacation or after a long week at the office is to find out that the basement flooded and your insurance company won’t honour the claim.

Most insurance companies will not cover a claim if the home is left vacant for longer than four days or 96 consecutive hours.

Our home watch service will schedule your property inspections as often as required by your insurance company. Also, we plan our visits at different times of the day for security purposes.

Furthermore, you will want to list Blue Mountain Concierge as the local contact for your alarm company or town by-law office. Consequently, we are almost always on-site without the need to contact other authorities.
