What is the Difference between a Condominium Association Master Insurance Policy and a Unit Owner Condo Insurance Policy? South Boston MA

What is the Difference between a Condominium Association Master Insurance Policy and a Unit Owner Condo Insurance Policy (HO-6), South Boston MA?

Unless you have studied insurance for a living, it can be difficult to understand the difference between a Condo Association Master Insurance Policy and a Unit Owners Condo Insurance Policy (HO-6). Since there are a number of differences, I explain the basics.

 

Condo Master Insurance

 

 

MASTER INSURANCE POLICY

 

The Condo Association Master Insurance Policy is purchased by the condo association. You pay for the cost for this insurance indirectly. It's usually built into your condo fees.

The Condo's Master Insurance Policy has 2 basic sections, Property and Liability. The property section provides insurance coverage for the building, common areas and in some cases each unit (but not your individual contents). To explain this simply: If you flip the building up-side-down whatever doesn't fall out is covered by the Condo Association Master Insurance Policy.

When you do business with AJ Marchionne Insurance Agency Inc, we take care of this so you do not have to worry about it.

The Condo Association's Master Insurance Policy provides liability insurance to cover the association against law suits. If someone was to get hurt on your premises and sue the association your insurance company will pay for the injuries and all of the legal expenses.

 

UNIT OWNERS INSURANCE POLICY (HO-6) - This is the personal policy that you as a unit owner should purchase.

 

These insurance policies are relatively inexpensive and sometime start as low as $150 per year. Your Unit Owner Condo Insurance (HO-6) provides coverage for your contents (clothing, furniture, TV's, computers, dishes & bedding against fire, theft, hurricanes and broken pipes, etc). The Unit Owner's Insurance (HO-6) also provides coverage for any portion of your unit (building) that is not insured under the Condo Association Master Insurance Policy.  

Similar to the Condo Association Master Insurance Policy the Unit Owner's Insurance (HO-6) also includes liability coverage for law suits brought against you as an individual. For example: you have guests visiting and one of them slips, falls and hurts themselves in your unit and sues you personally. This type of law suit will be covered under your Unit Owner's Insurance Policy (HO-6).
