Unlike a homeowner, folks that live in condos don’t own the building itself or the land that it is on. Instead, the homeowner or condo association will be insured through a master policy that protects the building itself, the common areas, and property for damages that occur in those areas. With that said, it is likely that your homeowner or condo association will not pay for damage to the interior of your unit to include storm damage, stolen property, or injuries to guests that may be visiting. There is good news – condo owners don’t have to be on the hook for these expensive damages and instead can have peace of mind through the purchase of condo insurance or HO-6 policy. If you are in the Muskegon, MI area, give Janis-Shunta Insurance a call and we’ll help answer any of your condo insurance-related questions.
Covers Damage not Insured by the HOA
Condo insurance will protect you from having to shell out cash for things like damage to the interior of your unit that is not the walls, floor, and ceiling. Additionally, coverage typically includes stolen property like furniture and electronics plus payment towards medical bills if a guest is hurt while at your home.
Although cost can vary widely depending on where you reside, for instance, New York City is likely to be more expensive than Muskegon, MI – condo insurance is a relatively nominal sum when you think of how much it can cost to replace stolen furniture or damages to a unit. At Janis-Shunta Insurance, we will work with you to find a plan that fits in any budget.
Loss of Use Coverage
If you are displaced from your home due to damage, condo insurance can help cover the cost of temporary living spaces while you find a new home or wait for your unit to be repaired.
