Condo Insurance Information

Condo Insurance for personal possessions

Condo insurance provides coverage for your possessions. Your furniture, electronics including computers and cellphones, your wardrobe, household goods, and most of the personal possessions you have acquired are covered by the contents coverage part of your condo policy. Your policy will cover you for fire, water damage, theft, and many other perils that can damage your property. Theft coverage usually covers you for theft that occurs away from your premises. Certain types of property are subject to sub-limits, examples include jewelry, electronics, business property, etc., Possessions subject to sub-limits can be insured separately, jewelry/engagement rings are often insured separately, or you can increase the sub-limit. The best way to determine how much insurance is to ask yourself if you had to replace all of your possessions and furniture how much would it cost. We can help you determine the amount of personal property/contents insurance you should buy.

Condo Insurance for walls, floors, builtins, betterments and improvements

It is important to purchase enough insurance so that you can rebuild your condo should you have a covered total loss, for example, a fire. If a steam or plumbing pipe burst and damages your floor how much would it cost to replace it? The master policy that covers the common areas of the condominium will not be sufficient to provide coverage for the walls, floor, fixtures, built-in, etc. Renovations and upgrades made by you or a previous owner are not covered by the building's master policy. It's important to purchase enough insurance to be able to rebuild the entire unit if you suffer a total loss.

If a guest slips and falls in your apartment you may be liable, these types of mishaps are covered by the liability part of your condo policy. Liability insurance will pay for the cost of defending you in court and pay any court awards up to the limit of your policy. Liability insurance has limits, they usually start at $300,000 can go as high as $1,000,000 or more.
