A very common myth with condos is that because the condo corporation has insurance, you don’t need condominium insurance for your unit. The fact is, while the building itself may be protected, the contents inside your unit are definitely not.
As a condo owner, there are special requirements for your insurance policy because the building and your unit have separate insurance requirements. Condo insurance is valuable for unit owners because not only does it cover your personal property, but it also covers parts of your unit that aren’t covered by your association’s insurance policy.
Another positive about condo insurance is that it is generally quite inexpensive. And, if you already have an auto policy, then combining it with a condo insurance policy can add up to big savings.

Sometimes there are unique situations that require different coverages to be combined. For example, if you own a freehold townhouse condo, you could require a homeowners policy with loss assessment added on. Each condo situation is different, so it’s important to speak with a broker who can help you secure the right policy.
