Condo insurance is similar to homeowners insurance in that it covers many things in your condo, just like homeowners’ insurance does. However, condo insurance has one distinct difference. It only covers the interior of your condo, not its exterior. Your condo fees are designed to cover the maintenance of your condo’s exterior and common areas. Our Carminucci Agency team is committed to helping Croton Falls, NY, condo owners get the necessary coverage.
What is condo insurance?
Condo insurance covers your personal belongings, the walls, floors, appliances, and more. It also protects from theft and vandalism. However, condo insurance will not cover the exterior of your condo unit, only the exterior. Damage caused by specific natural perils is covered as well. Of course, as with any insurance policy, understanding the terms of your coverage is extremely important. Although many things are covered by condo insurance, some things aren’t. Also, some forms of damage may not be covered as well.
Will condo insurance cover the repair of the pipes that burst under my kitchen sink?
Yes, possibly. Water damage is a commonly covered item for a condo insurance policy. It’s likely that the repair of your broken pipes and any other area that was damaged by the broken pipes will be covered by your condo insurance policy. However, as mentioned above, the repair is usually covered by condo insurance unless the teams and conditions of your condo insurance policy do not cover the reason for the broken pipes. If you accidentally break the pipes yourself, your condo insurance may not cover the repair because it may be considered negligent. An insurance agent can explain the terms of your policy when it comes to any coverage area. However, if you have more questions about condo insurance, call us. We’d be happy to answer your questions.
