“Toronto Home Watch founder, Deena Friedman, is a native Torontonian. Deena has a bachelors degree in psychology and has taught high school career studies, civics and geography courses in Toronto for many years. Her family has been managing commercial, retail and residential property for more than 30 years. As leaders in the GTA real estate industry, they have first-hand knowledge of the problems that can arise when properties are unoccupied for significant periods of time.
Our founders have researched the local insurance industry, and have discovered that GTA homeowners who leave their homes unoccupied, even for short periods of time, are acually putting the insurance coverage of their homes at risk. According to most insurance companies, any home left vacant for over 30 days is classified as “”abandoned”” and they can deny coverage if there is no proof that someone has been in to check, but damage due to burst pipes or flooding can be denied if there has been no one in the home for as few as two days! Toronto Home Watch always advise clients to check their insurance policy prior to leaving town to make sure their homes are being checked on at the frequency that is required by their insurer in order to maintain coverage.
The Greater Toronto area has many homes that are unoccupied for extended periods of time. Toronto has many homeowners who are snowbirds, cottagers, travelers and foreign investors who may leave their homes unattended for much of the year. Toronto Home Watch’s goal is to educate homeowners of the limitations of their insurance coverage and provide convenient solutions to homeowners who wish to maintain coverage and protect their homes during their absences.
Toronto Home Watch offers home watch, keyholding and concierge services throughout the GTA (Greater Toronto Area) and beyond. Our goal at Toronto Home Watch is to make living in, and owning a home in, Toronto an enjoyable experience.
