What is condo insurance (sometimes called an h06 policy)?

Condominium Insurance is designed to protect condo unit owners from many possible losses that occur.  Most attached condos are covered by a homeowners association policy for certain potential claims, but there are many risks that are not covered, which has created the need for condo insurance. 

For whom is condo unit owners insurance designed?

If you live in one of the following, then you want to consider condo unit owners insurance:

  • Condominium Association
  • Townhome Association
  • Rowhouse Association
  • Homeowners Association (attached homes)
  • Planned Community  – Some Planned Unit Developments (HUD)

Although your condo association’s (HOA’s) master policy may cover the exterior and the rebuilding cost of a barebones interior of you condo unit, there is much more to protect.  As a landlord, you have the unique position of owning a home where you do not live.  Therefore, you are  not there to monitor the day-to-day activities that occur. Protecting your valuable asset as well as your personal liability is key.

Our team can help with policies that allow for you to insure multiple locations on the same policy. Along with a potential cost savings, there may also be the options for a single deductible.

Many policies also offer the option for higher liability limits to help protect you in the event of a liability claim. While personal condo landlord policies may only offer liability limits of $500,000, we have options for higher limits ($1,000,000 or more)  as well as umbrella and excess policies.  Billing is also simplified by having a single bill for multiple units.
