An Insurance Cost Appraisal is also referred to as Replacement Cost New( RCN). It is the process of determining the value of a replacement building or facility if the existing one is destroyed by a disaster such as floods or fire. Most insurance cost appraisals in Calgary are done annually.

Reasons for Insurance Cost Appraisals

This ensures that a property is not under or overvalued. The insurance appraisal process ensures that the property is adequately insured. If it is undervalued, in case of a disaster, the insurance company will only pay for the insured cost. If the property is overvalued, it means that a person will have to pay higher premiums.

Value addition or facility renovations: Normally, renovations increases the value of a facility and hence the need to do an insurance appraisal to get the actual value of the property.

Condominiums always require an updated insurance appraisal to avert conflicts amongst members in case of a disaster.
Insurers use appraisal reports for compensation purposes.
