Intro to Condo Insurance
Condo insurance is generally provided by two sources – the condo unit owner (you) and the condominium association. Confusing, right?
We’ve taken on the task of knowing insurance inside and out, so we can break it down for you, in simple terms. Then you know what your remaining risks are and can decide how to handle them.
Belongings and Improvements
You can choose from two coverage levels for your possessions and any improvements you make that you’re required to insure:
Coverage for specific risks listed in your policy.
Specific coverages will be listed in your policy for things like:
- Fire or lightning
- Theft or vandalism
- Wind or hail
- Freezing of plumbing
Our best coverage.1
In addition to what the basic policy includes, you’ll also have protection for accidents like:
- Countertop burns
- Paint spillage
- Power surge damage to appliances
You can also choose from the following claim settlement types for your personal property:
Actual Cash Value
Coverage for your belongings at the cost to repair or replace the damaged property, minus depreciation.
Coverage for the cost to repair or replace your belongings. So if you have a 10-year-old refrigerator you need to replace because of a covered loss, we’ll pay you for a comparable model today, minus your deductible.
Liability and Medical
Liability coverage is automatically included with your condo insurance and helps protect you if someone is injured on your property, you're responsible for damages to someone else's property, or you're sued for those injuries or damages and have legal defense costs.
- Choose liability limits up to $1 million
- Add optional liability coverages (for in-home businesses, recreational motor vehicles, watercraft, rental dwellings, etc.) for an additional cost
- Add a personal umbrella liability insurance policy if you need more than $1 million in coverage
Medical payments coverage can provide coverage for others’ medical costs if they’re injured on your property. You can choose up to $25,000 in coverage.

More Coverage Options
You may need special coverage that our base policy doesn’t have. We offer extra choices at an added cost to customize your condo insurance coverage.
Coverage for high value items
Some of your belongings are only insured up to specific limits. Some examples:
- Jewelry, watches and furs: $2500 ($1500 in GA)
- Silverware, goldware and pewterware: $2500
- Money and other currency: $200
- Firearms: $2500
- Watercraft (like boats, jet skis and trailers): $1500
- Recreational motor vehicles (like ATVs and 4-wheelers): $500
If you have high value items you have questions about, talk to your representative about insuring them separately. It’s usually very affordable, and you’ll have peace of mind knowing you’re protected.
Coverage for additional risks
The following risks aren’t included with the base condo insurance policy coverage, but you can buy extra coverage for:
- Identity theft
- Earthquake damage
- Sump pump failure and/or back-up of sewer or drain
- Mine subsidence (for damage caused by underground mine collapse)1
- Loss assessments from a condo association2
Condo insurance doesn’t cover flood damage, and flood insurance is generally only available through the National Flood Insurance Program. We can help get you covered through the federal program if your condo qualifies.3
