Condo Insurance is a contract between you and your Insurance Company. It can provide coverage for your condo and your belongings as well as legal responsibilities you may incur as a result of injury or property damage you or members of your family may cause to others. In exchange for your premium payment, your Insurance Company agrees to pay losses as defined in your policy.
While the Condominium association generally provides insurance to cover the property (building and other structures), you probably are responsible for the portion of the building within your unit. Dwelling Coverage pays to repair or rebuild that portion of your unit.
Your personal items in your condo such as furniture, clothing, and electronics can be covered if damaged by a covered cause of loss.
If a covered cause of loss means that your condo can’t be lived in, this coverage provides additional housing and living expenses while repairs are being made.
If you or a household family member is responsible for causing injury or damage to other people or their property, coverage can be available to pay for the injury or damage. This can include guests who are injured on your property. Additionally, coverage can be provided for legal defense for injury or damage to others.
Most Condo Insurance policies cover damage caused by perils such as fire, windstorm, hail, lightning, theft or vandalism. Additional coverages or higher limits may be available. Your Insurance Agent can help you determine what coverages, limits, and deductibles are most appropriate for your individual situation.
