If you are a homeowner, it’s important to have homeowners insurance. But what if you live in a condominium? Do you need a different type of insurance? The answer is yes – condominium owners need condominium insurance. This type of insurance protects your belongings and covers damage to the building. Americas Insurance Associates in Florida can help you navigate this important coverage.
Here are some of the unique features of condo insurance:
It’s Sometimes Called "HO- six" Insurance
If you live in a condominium in Florida, you may have heard your insurance agent refer to your policy as "HO- six" insurance. This is just another way of saying that it’s a type of homeowners insurance specifically designed for people who live in condos.
HO- six insurance policies differ from standard homeowners insurance policies in a few key ways. For one thing, they typically cover things like your unit’s walls, floors, and ceilings – as well as any fixtures or appliances that are permanently attached to the unit. They also cover any common areas that the condo association owns.
Loss Assessment Coverage Is Important
One of the most important features of condominium insurance is something called "loss assessment coverage." This helps protect you in the event that you are held liable for damages to common areas or any special assessments levied by the condo association. Talk to an agent from Americas Insurance Associates to find out more about this policy.
Guest Medical Coverage
This feature helps pay for medical bills if a guest is injured while on your property. For example, let’s say your child has a friend over to play, and the friend falls down the stairs. If you have guest medical coverage, your insurance policy will help pay for any resulting medical bills – up to the limit of your coverage.
Personal Property Coverage
This feature helps protect your personal belongings in the event of a covered loss, such as a fire or theft. For example, let’s say your condo is burglarized and your laptop, TV, and jewelry are stolen. If you have personal property coverage, your insurance policy will help pay to replace these items – up to the limit of your coverage.
