Condo insurance covers your unit and belongings from adverse events like a fire or burglary, and liability for accidents that occur in your home.
If you own a condominium, you will want not only to insure your home’s contents such as furniture and clothing, but also cabinetry, appliances, plumbing, etc. Your condominium association may be responsible for the unit’s floor, ceiling, and bare walls, but be sure to understand exactly where their responsibility ends and yours begins for the unit.
Your Dwelling limit should provide enough coverage to replace the building items you are responsible for under your association’s bylaws. Typically this includes the flooring, cabinets, paint, and possibly drywall, electrical, and plumbing pertaining to your unit. Any alterations, appliances, fixtures, and improvements you make should be factored into this limit.
For an additional premium, you can select Special Coverage for your condo unit’s building items, giving you coverage for a larger number of events. You can also add additional coverage based on your lifestyle, including Golf Cart Coverage and Unit-Owners Rental to Others (if you rent your condo to an annual tenant).
Review Your Policy
What are some things unique to you as a condo owner?
- If your building or unit has burglar or fire alarms, or a sprinkler system, you might be eligible for a premium credit. Provide your agent with a copy of the current monitoring certificate to see if you are eligible.
- If a storm damages the common areas of your condominium complex, your association may assess all the owners to pay for the damage or to cover the master policy’s deductible. To protect you, your policy contains a Loss Assessment coverage. Different limits of coverage are available.
- Also, depending on the construction type of your building, you might be eligible for Windstorm Loss Mitigation Credits.
