Condo Association Insurance Information
Condo association insurance, also called homeowners association insurance, is a specialized form of coverage designed to protect the collective interests and assets of condominium complexes. These associations manage and maintain common areas, shared amenities and the exterior of buildings. Understanding the intricacies of condo association insurance is essential for effective condominium management and ensuring the association’s and its residents’ protection.
What Is a Condo Association Insurance Policy?
Condo association insurance is purchased by the condominium or homeowners association to protect the shared or common elements of the property and the association itself. Condo associations typically manage and maintain common areas, such as hallways, lobbies, elevators, parking lots and recreational facilities, in addition to the building’s structure and exterior. Condo association insurance provides financial protection for these shared assets and helps cover various risks associated with the management of the condominium complex.
What Does a Condo Association Insurance Policy Cover?
Condo association insurance can typically cover the following:
- Common areas—This includes shared spaces within the condominium complex, such as lobbies, hallways, elevators, swimming pools, fitness centers and parking garages. The policy covers the structural elements of these areas and any communal property within them.
- Building structures—This includes roofs, walls, foundations and common structural elements like staircases and elevators. This coverage is crucial for repairs or replacements in case of damage or disasters.
- Liability protection—This can help if someone is injured or experiences property damage within common areas and the association is found legally responsible. Liability coverage helps with legal defense and any potential settlements.
- Association property—This includes equipment, furniture and landscaping in common areas. If these items are damaged due to covered perils such as fire, vandalism or severe weather, the insurance policy can cover the cost of repair or replacement.
It’s essential for condo association board members and unit owners to review their association’s insurance policy carefully to understand the specific coverage provided, deductibles and limitations or exclusions. Additionally, individual unit owners should secure their own condo insurance to protect their personal belongings, interior fixtures and any upgrades made within their units, as these are typically not covered by the association’s master insurance policy.
