INSURANCE YOU CAN COUNT ON FOR OVER 30 YEARS!

CONDO/TOWNHOME INSURANCE

Townhouse or Condominium Insurance, or HO-6 as it it known in the insurance industry is very similar to Renters and Homeowners Insurance. You can purchase Townhouse or Condominium Insurance in one of two ways.

  1. You own the town home or condo, and you live in the residence. This policy is similar to a traditional homeowners.
  2. You own the town home or condo, but you rent it out to another party. This now turns it into a Rental/Landlord policy.

There is often overlooked coverage on a Town home or Condo policy. Two of the major ones are. Dwelling Coverage, and Loss Assessment.

 

First, these types of policies are rated based on the amount of Personal Property you want to insure, similar to a renters policy. The dwelling is usually a percentage of that amount.  An example is $50,000 in personal property, would be $5-10,000 in dwelling coverage. This amount for dwelling coverage is usually far below what is needed. The amount needed for the dwelling coverage can all be tied back to your Home Owners Association (HOA) master policy. Does it cover the structure? Does it covers studs in or  paint in? This determines what insurance you are responsible for. These HOA master policies can vary greatly in what is, or not covered.

 

Secondly, is Loss Assessment. Loss Assesment will refer back to coverage from your HOA master policy again. Loss Assessment provides coverage for a Condo or Townhome owner in case there is a claim on the building or a common area(Club House, Pool, Playground, etc...) 

 

As an Example, lets say a hail storm comes through the area. Now there is hail damage to all roofs in the Condo complex, it is determined that there is $1,500,000 in damages to repair all roofs. The HOA only has $1,000,000 in insurance coverage. Now the HOA can ASSESS that additional $500,000 in damages to all Condo Owners. Let's say there is 50 Condo owners, that is a $10,000 assessment to each Condo Owner. 

 

You need to make sure you are aware of what your HOA covers.  Your Insurance agent does not know, so make sure to read and understand your HOA before looking for coverage. You may also want to get a copy of the HOA master policy, so your agent can help determine how much coverage you may need.
