Do I require a separate insurance policy for my condo unit?
You may ask yourself why you need to purchase a separate insurance policy for your unit yet the overall condominium building is already insured. The difference is that the building insurance policy normally covers only the common areas in the building like the lobby, lift, and gymnasium, but doesn’t cover personal belongings of the owners.
Other than needing the insurance to guard your financial security, as an owner of a condominium you may be responsible for some big repairs. The reason being that condo declaration typically have set rules that say if the loss started in your unit, e.g a pipe bursts where you live and spread to other apartments, you may be held responsible for the whole building’s insurance cover deductibles, which could be a huge sum, and you may also have to cover the cost of repairing the damage. A personal insurance policy can protect you in such a case.
Knowing the sort of condo insurance you require can be a bit complicated, but US Independent Insurance Agency LLC, Virginia can help you get the best policy that caters for your personal needs.
