Being a condo owner is a unique situation when it comes to insurance. You aren’t simply just renting, so a renters insurance policy isn’t the right fit, but you aren’t quite in need of a homeowners insurance policy. Massachusetts condo owners are going to need a Condo Insurance policy, with just the right coverage for their needs. The condo fees that you pay are not going to cover you in the event that your belongings are stolen or damaged or if you are in need of liability insurance. Your condo association will not give you the coverage you need.
Speak with one of our agents about a condo insurance policy to fit all of your needs. They can help you get coverage for all of the things your condo association won’t cover. For example, they can help you get the coverage you need for everything in your condo ranging from furniture and appliances right down to the smaller items, like your electronics and clothes. The list below gives a better overview of some of the things a basic MA condo insurance policy will cover:
- Personal possessions
- Electrical Wiring
- Liability coverage
- Improvements or upgrades made to your home
- Wallpaper and carpeting
- And more!
Do you really need condominium insurance? If you have a mortgage, you will be required to have coverage. If you don’t have a mortgage and it’s an option, you definitely won’t regret taking the option to have a policy. Your insurance agent will recommend limits for a policy that include protection for the following coverages:
- Medical payments
- Loss assessment
- Replacement Cost
- And more!
Having the above as part of your condo insurance can help cover you, in addition to covering your condo and belongings. Once you have a basic policy with the proper coverage, you may want to consider adding specialty or additional policies. Adding additional policies will depend on your individual needs, but some common examples include:
Your policy may vary based on just how much coverage you need, the value of your possessions inside your condo, and potential coverage provided by your condo association. As is the case with many insurance policies, take some time to talk to your agent about potential discounts available if you are worried about cost of premium. Depending on the carrier they may be able to offer you discounts for combining your condo policy with your auto, or even making your payment in full.
