Florida condominium insurance is a specific insurance policy designed to fit the unique needs of condo owners. Many confuse Florida condo insurance with a renter’s policy, because in fact both can personal property and liability protection; however, condo owners need to take into consideration the additional coverage that may be needed for the building based on their condominium association’s overall master policy.
Typically your condo association will insure the building based on one of two approaches: bare walls or single entity. A “bare walls” approach means that the association will insure only the building walls, including the roof, floors, elevators, etc. The association is not responsible for insuring anything inside your unit such as appliances, cabinets, carpeting, wallpaper, plumbing, electrical wiring, etc. In comparison a “single entity” coverage plan means that your condo association will insure the building as well as particular fixtures inside of your unique unit including carpeting, cabinets and appliances. However, it’s important to remember that in both scenarios you are still left responsible for your own personal belongings and possessions.
When considering the level of security you want to get from your Florida condo insurance, ask yourself:
- What is the association’s responsibility for insuring?
- What am I responsible for insuring?
- How much coverage do I need for my possessions?
- Do I have replacement cost or actual cash value coverage for my possessions?
- Are there policy limits for my valuables? Should I purchase more coverage for those items?
With all these questions and varying degrees of liability and responsibility, it’s easy to feel a bit overwhelmed. At Insurance Icon Inc. we’ll take the time to help you determine exactly the amount of coverage you need, and will help to secure it at the most competitive rates available.
