Condo Insurance in California

At Biddle-Shaw Insurance Services, Inc. in San Francisco, CA, a condominium unit owner policy insures a unit owner's property and their personal belongings. As an insurance instrument, a condo insurance policy in California resembles its distant cousin – the renter’s insurance policy. Remember, Condo insurance only covers a unit’s interior damage and personal property.

In fact, it is the condo’s HOA that typically carries the appropriate insurance for the physical structures and common areas. For additional protection, each unit-owner is advised to review their HOA’s master insurance policy to determine how the terms of the master policy may personally impact them.

When is Condo Insurance needed?

  • Someone is injured in your unit
  • There’s damage to the interior of your unit
  • Your property is stolen
  • The damage exceeds the HOA’s policy limits – If the HOA surpasses the limits of its master policy, each unit owner may be mandated to contribute funds.
  • Your condo is unlivable due to damage covered by your insurance – If damage to your unit makes it uninhabitable; the insurer will pay for expenses related to living elsewhere, such as hotel room bills.

By contrast, the Homeowners Association's Master Insurance Policy covers:

  • The building's exterior
  • Damage to shared amenities or common areas.
  • Common area injuries

When you are ready to research available condo insurance options in California, consider the cost of insurance as well as the company's customer service reputation and goodwill.
