Connecticut Condominium Insurance

Whether you are looking for your first home in Connecticut or moving to a new area, there are plenty of reasons to consider a condominium. Condo ownership allows you convenience while building equity, and they commonly come with amenities like private pools.

Condo unit owners have different insurance needs than homeowners. Whether your condo is located in Bridgeport, Norwalk, Stamford, New Canaan or another Connecticut city, it’s important to help protect your investment with appropriate insurance coverage.

While you may think you have adequate coverage through your condo association, there may be gaps in coverage. For example, a typical master policy protects the exterior of your unit, but not the interior walls or your personal belongings inside.

Possible Condominium Insurance Coverage Gaps 

It is common for condo association insurance to focus only on the building structure and common areas, leaving your unit and your property inside exposed in the event of a claim. Every master policy is different, but some things that may not be covered are:

  • Improvements or betterments you’ve made to your unit
  • Your personal property
  • Wall coverings such as paint or wall paper
  • Some master policies cover cabinets, fixtures, carpet, etc., but some do not

What is Loss of Use Coverage? 

If a covered loss such as a fire prevents you from living in your home, this coverage can provide reimbursement for additional living expenses while repairs are made. Typically, a policy will reimburse you for the portion of hotel bills, meals, laundry and other living expenses that exceed what you would pay if you were living in your home, but policies can vary. Reach out to your local insurance agent to see what coverages are available to you.
