Condo Building Insurance

Help protect your real estate investment.

Condo building insurance for your business needs.

Condo building insurance can be complicated. Specialty condo insurance recognizes the many different risk types and provides clarity regarding which parties are responsible for covering which risks.

Four levels of coverage for condo buildings.

The unique nature of condo buildings often leads to some confusion over who is responsible for insuring what. In reality, it’s a simple set-up, but everyone involved, both the condo association and the condo owner, needs to know how it works. There are four main types of policies that each have their own unique areas of coverage. These include:

 

The risks your brewery faces.

The insurance your brewery needs depends on a variety of factors, including the size of your brewery operations, whether you serve food, if you give tours, or if you host events on your property. All of these elements come into play in addition to the brewing, selling, and serving of beer, which is why properly covering your risks is essential.

Association master policy.

The condo owners association insures some parts of the building against damage with an “association master policy.” The individual condo owners will be responsible for any remaining insurance for their own unit. The association master policy will almost always cover common areas such as hallways and the elevators, but other coverage varies.

Bare walls coverage.

The simplest option is “bare walls coverage,” meaning the condo owners association policy simply covers the walls, floors, and ceilings in each unit, with the individual owners responsible for everything else, including fittings and fixtures.

Single entity coverage.

“Single entity coverage” extends the condo owners association coverage to “standard finishes,” such as fitted kitchens and bathroom units, but not the owner’s personal property. One note of caution—if an owner replaces any fitting, such as a kitchen counter or carpet, it will no longer be covered by the association master policy.

Modified single entity coverage.

Finally “modified single entity” (also called all-in coverage) extends coverage to any replacement or upgraded fittings.

Commercial Umbrella

Risk Factor

What happens when your business faces a large liability loss that exceeds the basic limit of your standard policy?

Solution

A commercial umbrella policy provides high limits of insurance, typically between $2,000,000 and $10,000,000. Coverage is extended over your general liability insurance, workers’ compensation, business auto, as well as directors and officers liability coverage. It provides a great safety net and helps ensure your business is well protected.

Cyber Liability Insurance

Risk Factor

The internet has spun a whole new web of liability exposures. E-commerce, social networking, cloud storage, and other technologies bring great benefits to large and small practices alike. But with these benefits also come challenges, including protection of privacy, data, and the financial information of your customers.

Solution

Cyber liability insurance protects your practice in the event of unauthorized access to electronic data or software within your network. It also provides coverage for spreading a virus, extortion, accidental release of personal identifiable information, and resultant damage caused by a lost or stolen laptop or other mobile device. This coverage is quickly becoming more and more important as you embrace technology to help run your practice.

Risk Factor

Crime and fidelity bond insurance is designed to provide coverage to cooperative and condominium associations to protect them from theft of funds or association-owned personal property by an employee, board member and in some cases, the property management firm.

Solution

Crime and fidelity coverage is designed to provide coverage for employee dishonesty, forgery and alteration, computer fraud, counterfeiting, and more.

Environmental Insurance

Risk Factor

Could your business cause damage to the environment? If so, are you covered?

Solution

Environmental insurance provides protection if an environmental catastrophe occurs.

Systems Breakdown

Risk Factor

With technology performing many tasks in today’s world, a breakdown can cause a significant financial burden, including the cost to repair the equipment, the interruption of your business, as well as any lost income and extra expenses.

Solution

General Liability

Risk Factor

Businesses are susceptible to many risks, such as claims due to bodily injury, property damage, personal injury, and more.

Solution

General liability insurance is an absolute necessity for any business. It provides broad coverage when you are deemed responsible and liable, and will also pay to defend any covered lawsuit or action regardless of its merit.

Personal Property / Contents - Property Damage

Risk Factor

When your home suffers damage due to an unexpected event, your personal property is also at risk. Furniture, appliances, clothing, electronics, and other personal items can also be damaged or destroyed.

Solution

Your homeowners insurance policy typically covers personal property, including the contents of your home and other personal items owned by you or family members who live with you. Make sure your homeowners policy includes replacement cost coverage for personal property so that you always receive the full cost to replace whatever item is damaged.

Sponsor / Investors Owned Units Insurance

Risk Factor

Typically the policies for the association exclude coverage for the sponsor or holder of unsold shares for the interior of the units they own.

Solution

A policy should be maintained to provide coverage for what you are responsible for within the unit, as well as any lost income and lawsuits resulting from acts within the unit.

Directors and Officers Liability Insurance (D&O)

Risk Factor

Directors and officers (such as board members) are exposed to increased risk factors and are held accountable for acts that claim negligence in the performance of their duties. Any resulting lawsuits are typically expensive to defend, resulting in potentially large settlements.

Solution

Obtain comprehensive coverage to protect senior individuals of your company. Directors and officers liability insurance provides coverage for the legal costs to defend a covered lawsuit and provides the money necessary for any settlement beyond the defense costs.
