Condominium insurance coverage
It is important that you know an important difference between the HOA condominium association insurance and the condominium unit owner’s insurance. The first one has to do with everything that happens in the common areas of the condominium. The second deals with everything that belongs to the owner.
In other words, condominium insurance coverage includes everything from personal properties to the interior walls of the home. The entire interior of the home is covered by the condominium insurance. But the exterior is covered by the HOA insurance, which goes from its outside walls to stairs and green areas.
What covers and what does not the condominium insurance?
The policy of the Association is responsible, for example, to cover the person if it was injured in the pool of the condominium. But if, on the contrary, the owner decides to incur in repairing the unit’s floor, the HOA will not cover him.
There are catastrophic damages that can occur, and the insurance of the Association has certain limits. In that case, the policy of the unit owner would cover the rest.
In the same way, this policy is designed to cover the losses of use in case of problems of habitability (in case of living in rented accommodation for several days).
On the other hand, if a fire or a theft occurs, a pipe freezes, these homeowners policies are designed to cover them. It does not cover damage from floods or earthquakes.
