Insurance is intended to protect you from the unknown. Whether that means damage from a storm or broken appliances from a power surge. Like homeowners insurance, condo insurance is intended to protect the inside of your condo and your belongings. While there are many similarities, there are also many differences between personal condo insurance and your homeowner's association.
The biggest difference is many condo associations carry their own insurance that will cover the public spaces in your building. This means that your personal condo insurance does not need to cover areas that are commonly shared. Additionally, depending on the condo association, there may be certain aspects of your condo that are already covered by the association's insurance. This can include the exterior to your building, balcony, or patio area.
Often, many of these spaces are viewed as common spaces, or shared spaces, so any repairs to damage on the exterior of the building are covered by the blanket condo insurance your association owns. It is always a good idea to check with your condo association to learn exactly what is covered by your association's insurance.
