When you own a condo, your master association does have some condo insurance, but this doesn’t mean that you are protected. You still need to get your own policy since the master association policy doesn’t cover your liability or your personal belongings inside your unit. Depending on what type of condo insurance policy your association has, you could be on the hook for different coverage. For example, if you are only going to get bare walls in coverage, then this only covers the structure, furnishings, and fixtures in common areas, but likely doesn’t include any upgrades you have made for your condo.
With a typical condo insurance policy, you will get coverage for different categories, including building property, personal property, personal liability, loss of use, and loss assessments. One of the main differences between the condo policy and a home insurance policy is that your condo policy only covers the structure of the unit from the walls in since the association is responsible for the walls. Otherwise, condo policies and home policies are similar. Usually, the property and dwelling coverage will cover a list of named perils such as vandalism, theft, hail, and fire. If hazards are not named, this means they aren’t covered, such as flooding. An agent at TransGlobal P&C Insurance Agency can help you go over what is and isn’t covered.
Your personal property coverage isn’t limited to things that are located just inside your unit. You can also file claims for any belongings that are lost or stolen while traveling or outside. Loss assessment coverage is usually optional that you can add. This covers instances where the condo owners are responsible for a shared loss, as long as it’s a covered peril. For example, if there is a fire in the lobby, and it ends up costing the association more, then the assessment coverage can help pay for your share.
