2. Notification of Property Damage Liability2. Notification of Property Damage Liabilityhttp://chad.ca/en/members/professional-practice/toolbox/letters-of-subrogation/141/2-notification-of-property-damage-liability

​Once the investigation has begun, the claims adjuster may have to notify a third party that he could be held liable for damages caused to the insured and that his civil liability could be incurred.

During this process:

  • A notification of property damage liability must be sent to the third party. 
  • The third party is asked to send this notification to their own insurer in order to open the lines of communication between the two parties’ claims adjusters. 
  • Subrogation documents, or supporting documents related to compensation paid, could be exchanged if the third party’s liability is clearly incurred.

 

Please note that:
The notification of property damage liability must not be used for claims where a latent defect appears to be the cause of the damages. In this situation, section 1739 of the Civil Code of Québec applies.
