Massachusetts Condo Insurance
Massachusetts condo insurance is a specific coverage policy designed to fit the unique needs of condo owners. Many confuse condominium insurance with a renter’s policy, because in fact both can personal property and liability protection; however, condo owners need to take into consideration the additional coverage that may be needed for the building based on their condominium association’s overall master policy.
Typically your condo association will insure the building based on one of two approaches: bare walls or single entity. A “bare walls” approach means that the association will insure only the building including walls, the roof, floors, elevators, etc. The association is not responsible for insuring anything inside your unit such as appliances, cabinets, carpeting, wallpaper, plumbing, electrical wiring, etc. In comparison a “single entity” coverage plan means that your condo association will insure the building as well as particular fixtures inside of your unique unit including carpeting, cabinets and appliances. However, it’s important to remember that in both scenarios you are still left responsible for your own personal belongings and possessions.
