Temporary Housing Insurance Solutions

You have just learned of an event that caused severe damage to your home. Perhaps a flood, an accident, a storm or a fire – so what do you do now? Assuming you have adequate insurance, once the cause of the damage is under control and you have determined that no one is hurt, you can breathe a short sigh of relief. However, in terms of getting things back to “normal”, you are just at the start of a long, arduous and disruptive process.

Your insurance company is there to help, but you do have to be cognizant of the fact that your insurance policy is a contract that spells out how things should be done and exactly what you are entitled to. Your failure to comply with the terms of the policy could result is delays in processing your claim, reductions in the payment amounts or even outright refusal of your claim. So what are some of the things you should do right away? Here are a few tips that apply in almost all cases:

  • Notify your insurance company.
  • Take steps to prevent any additional damage (if it is safe to do so).
  • Take detailed pictures of the damage (if it is safe to do so).
  • Find a temporary place to live in.
For a homeowner, dealing with a major property insurance claim can send your world into an unexpected tailspin. You will have many different people offering advice (some solicited, some not) and you will need to make some important decisions right away.

Aside from the shock that often comes with finding one’s home severely damaged, there is also hassle of being forced to displace yourself and your family for weeks (or even months). A serious property damage situation is an unpleasant and traumatic experience. It’s essentially a combination of a family emergency and an impromptu home renovation – both of which have been shown to be two of the most stressful life events a person can experience.

At Sky View Suites, we are proud to help families going through this turbulent time by providing a comfortable, safe, turn-key home. Our team will be accessible, responsive, and take care of you from start to finish. Also, we can further facilitate your transition by working directly with your insurance claims adjustor so that you can focus on regrouping with your family, re-asserting your daily routine and putting your life back together.

We understand that both policyholders and insurance adjustors have unique needs when it comes to temporary serviced apartments. Policyholders appreciate our fast, attentive service along with the privacy, comfort and luxury of a residential condominium building. For insurance adjustors, Sky View Suites presents a cost-effective alternative to hotels, an all-inclusive pricing policy with no surprises and flexible terms.

As a result of managing a large exclusive inventory of fully furnished suites, we are often able to offer immediate / same-day move-in at many locations across the city. This saves the policyholder the hassle of an interim stay at a hotel, and it saves the insurance company the extra cost of high nightly hotel rates.

We offer a wide variety of quality furnished apartments, all of which are fully furnished, fully stocked and serviced by our dedicated team. Residents can also enjoy the use of hotel-like amenities available in most of our buildings, such as fitness centers and swimming pools, in order to help you feel at home during your temporary displacement.
