You should look into having condo insurance for your dwelling if you’re planning on purchasing a condominium. The questions are already there running in your mind, you’ve heard of renter’s insurance and homeowner’s insurance, but what is condo insurance? And why is it so important to have it? Wichalonis Insurance Agency in Cumming, GA can address these questions and consult with you on what your insurance options are for condominiums.
The first question that you probably have goes something like this, “wouldn’t the homeowner’s association cover any events of loss or damage?”. The easy answer to that question is: yes, the HOA will cover damages, to the actual building itself and any items that were part of the original lease. For instance, if you purchase a furnished condo and a fire destroys those furnishings, those losses would be covered under the HOA insurance policy. What the HOA policy doesn’t cover, is your own personal items or any upgrades or changes that you’ve made to the condo. This is where condo insurance comes in to protect the items that aren’t covered under the HOA policy.
You can look at a condo with just HOA coverage as an umbrella with a few holes in it. The umbrella can still be used, and the wind won’t pick it up and blow away, but when it rains, you’ll still get wet. Condo Insurance is the necessary alterations and patches needed to close those holes in the umbrella to fully protect you from a rainstorm in the case of a catastrophic event. You may not appreciate it if you live in a locale where it rarely rains, so to speak, but when it does rain, you’ll be happy that you’re fully protected
