Standard Insurable Unit Description Solutions
Standard insurable unit descriptions (SIUD) are required under the Alberta Condominium Property Amendment Act.
The SIUD is a detailed outline of all the finishes and fixtures within a standard unit based on original construction. The purpose of a standard insurable unit description is to provide clarity for condominium boards and insurers as to what is covered under the corporation's insurance following an insurable loss. 
What's Included?
The outline should include the following fixtures and finishings:
Various Class Types
Unit classes are defined by the various finishes and fixtures used by the developer. When there is more than one type of standard finish, there would be more than one class type.
An example of a condominium with more than one class type would be a development that has both apartments and townhomes. Another example would be a high-rise building with both standard apartments and luxury penthouse suites.
A separate outline is required for each class type and each outline must also state which units fall under which class.
Normac can help you determine how many class types are present and create all necessary outlines. ​
