If you are a homeowner or a condo owner, you need insurance to cover your home. You might wonder why you need different insurance if you own a condo. Isn’t home insurance enough to cover it? What is the difference between condo and home insurance? Isn’t it the same thing? Not quite. Here, we will discuss the main differences between the two.
How is condo insurance different from home insurance?
Liability insurance for homeowners covers the entire property inside and outside. Liability coverage will cover any accident on the property inside and outside the home. Condo owners are only responsible for covering what happens on the inside. If an accident occurs on the inside, your liability insurance will cover it. If anything happens on the outside, then your insurance is not responsible for it.
A homeowner needs dwelling insurance to cover the whole inside and outside structure against damage. Since the condo owner only owns the inside of the dwelling, they only need enough insurance to cover the inner part.
Loss assessment coverage
Homeowners only need loss assessment coverage if they live in a community with an HOA with shared common areas. Condos are almost always part of a community with an HOA, so they need loss assessment coverage to cover any regions shared in the community.
Personal property protection coverage
Condo insurance and home insurance are both similar when it comes to personal property protection. Whether you live in a condo or are a homeowner, personal property protection covers your belongings.
