Owning a condo can be an excellent alternative to owning a stand-alone house or renting an apartment. However, condos generally come with unique insurance needs. At United Direct Insurance Services, our condominium insurance experts will help you find a cost-effective and customized condo insurance policy, that will adequately protect your condo unit and its belongings.
Condo insurance coverage can be invaluable as an owner, if you incur unexpected expenses. The insurance coverage provided by condo associations – also referred to as a syndicate of co-owners, condo corporations, or strata corporations – typically covers the main structure of your unit and the common areas, but there are certain items it does not cover.
For instance, the association's master insurance policy does not cover unit improvements, personal belongings, and loss assessments. However, you can still protect the important items in your unit with condo insurance.
Our team of expert professionals can help you find a policy that fills these insurance gaps. We will help you determine the ideal limit for your personal property and the perfect coverage amount for your unit.
