Condo insurance with Elephant
Whether you own a beach front condo or a condo downtown, Elephant offers protection for your home and your possessions.
Why do I need condo insurance?
If you own a condominium, typically two insurance policies are required for complete coverage. Your homeowners association (HOA) or co-op board is usually responsible for the master policy. This master policy insures the building itself and common areas of your condo, including your roof and any walkways. Your personal property (what’s inside your condo) is covered by the second policy, your condo (ho6) insurance.
Typically, the condo owner is responsible for insuring anything inside the unit, including fixtures, walls, and flooring. Some master policies cover the standard unit, but any upgrades are the unit owner’s responsibility. Check with your HOA or co-op board to make sure you’re fully covered.
What does condo insurance cover?
It’s important to know which parts of your unit are covered by the master policy and which parts are your responsibility. Typically, the condo owner is responsible for insuring anything inside the unit, including fixtures, walls, and flooring. Some master policies cover the standard unit, but any upgrades are the unit owner’s responsibility. Check with your HOA or co-op board to make sure you’re fully covered.
Condo policies are typically made of four components: personal property coverage, loss assessment coverage, loss of use coverage, and personal liability coverage. Let’s take a look at what those mean.
Personal property coverage
If your personal belongings are damaged, this helps you with the cost of replacing them
Loss assessment coverage
If your condo building is damaged by something that isn’t covered by the master policy, the HOA may make an assessment and you may have to pay for a portion of the damage. This coverage can help pay your share.
Loss of use coverage
If your home is damaged, this pays for additional living expenses during repairs, such as temporary housing.
Personal liability coverage
This provides protection against potential lawsuits if someone is injured on your property.
