    Why you need condo insurance

    To protect what you own

    Your condo association's insurance policy isn't enough. It most likely ONLY covers the building you live in. Not the inside of your home or your personal property.

    To protect yourself

    If an accident happens in your condo, guess who might be held responsible. Yes. You. Condo insurance offers liability coverage to protect you.

    To ensure you have somewhere to live

    If your place gets damaged and you can't live there, a condo policy can help pay for temporary housing.

    How to I Insure My Condo

    This one confuses even the best mortgage broker! But truth is almost every condo Assocation has different rules and by laws - therefore we understand!

    Since you do not own the actual building, you typically only need to worry about the inside -or sometimes they refer to Studs In. Basically this is a Tenants/Renters policy on steroids!

    First start with your stuff - imagine shaking your home upside down and all of your stuff falls out. Who much would it coast to replace all of those things (Clothes, Dishes, Furniture, TVs etc ). That is your Personal Property amount.

    Then the tricky part. What does studs in mean? Usually it means that drywall, paint, carpet - all of that permanent stuff that is in-between the studs and your couch.

    The absolute best way to make sure you are insuring your condo properly is to look to your Bylaws and see what the Condo Master Policy already covers. You just need to cover the rest.

    When in doubt, you can always over insure... but only if you have no other choice. But we are here to help find a better way!
