  • Dwelling coverage to help protect the inside of your condo, along with any improvements you make. It can also cover parts of the property you’re responsible for insuring under your condo association agreement.

What Condo Insurance Is Available?

Types of Master Policies

Bare walls agreement, which protects only the structure of your condominium. The cost for this insurance is usually included in the dues you pay to your association. If other owners share your building, it will cover the collectively owned parts of the property, such as entryways, shared walls, elevators or staircases.

You’ll still need your own insurance to protect the personal property inside your condo.
 
Single entity helps protect all real property, like the building structure and fixtures, in your condo. Single entity coverage does not protect any structural improvements or additions to your unit.

Similar to the bare walls agreement, you and any owners that share your building will pay the cost of this coverage together. You will still need to insure the personal property inside your unit separately.
 
All-inclusive agreement covers all real property inside your condo’s structure, including fixtures and any improvements or additions you’ve made. Again, you will need to insure your own personal property with a separate policy.

These coverages will all play a role in deciding your condo insurance needs and cost.
Your condominium association will offer you a master policy. Each association offers different coverages.

How Much Condo Insurance Do I Need?

The amount of condo insurance you need depends on many factors, including:
Your condo association will have an insurance policy that gives you some coverage as a starting point, but they don’t all offer the same coverage.
 
State laws, which can differ from state to state and will help determine the coverage you need.
 
Personal possessions because the more expensive items you have, the more coverage you may need. You should make a list of your belongings and estimate their total value. This will help decide the amount of condo insurance coverage you need to replace them if they’re damaged.
