MAIN Arrow to HomeYour Money Arrow to InsuranceInsurance Arrow to Condo & Co-op Insurance Condo & Co-op Insurance

condo apartmentA common misperception among both condo owners and renters is that the insurance which covers their building also covers them. Not so.

Condo & co-op owners naturally assume that adequate insurance is covered in their association fees, which helps fund a master policy.

However, this policy only covers common walkways, hallways, boiler, elevator, roof and basement for physical damage and liability. To protect themselves and the property within their unit, owners need to purchase a personal home insurance policy - a.k.a. HO-6 - designed for condos and co-op apartments.

HO-6 and renters insurance are similar because they both provide personal property and property liability protection.

If the unit is burglarized, damaged by flood or fire, or a guest injures themselves inside the apartment, the separate policy kicks in to protect against personal liability. Typical HO-6 policy costs range to several hundred dollars annually depending on extra insurance (floaters) which may cover expensive items like artwork or jewelry.
