Condominium Association Property Insurance

Condominium Owner Personal Property Insurance Solution

As hurricanes are naturally a part of the Floridian lifestyle.  The State requires condominium owners to carry special assessment loss coverage. More specifically, Section 718.111(11)(g) of the Florida Condominium Act states that “a condominium unit owner policy must conform to the requirements of Section 627.714.”

Section 627.714(1) of the Florida Statutes provides:
For policies issued or renewed on or after July 1, 2010, coverage under a unit owner’s residential property policy must include at least $2,000 in property loss assessment coverage for all assessments made as a result of the same direct loss to the property, regardless of the number of assessments, owned by all members of the association collectively if such loss is of the type of loss covered by the unit owner’s residential property insurance policy, to which a deductible of no more than $250 per direct property loss applies. If a deductible was or will be applied to other property loss sustained by the unit owner resulting from the same direct loss to the property, no deductible applies to the loss assessment coverage.

After any damages from a hurricane or other natural disaster, the condominium’s master policy will cover a loss. However, if the damages exceed the coverage available in the building insurance policy, the association may seek a shared portion of the coverage from individual unit owners that the underlying association insurance was unable to cover.

The Association Master Policy

Condo Property Insurance covers

The condo association insurance covers the unit owners’ shared risks. The building(s) and common elements of a complex are covered with a single policy called an association master policy. The association bylaws and the association master policy specify which parts of the complex the association insures and which parts the individual unit owners must insure on their own. Many associations will repair common areas and some parts of units when the damage is caused by common-area problems (such as a leak from an air-conditioning unit on the roof).  But typically, associations don’t want to buy enough insurance to pay for damage to clothing, wallpaper, carpeting or anything else within a unit. Instead, HOAs require owners to have their own policy to cover the individual’s unit.
