Condominium Association Property Insurance

Property coverage covers the buildings and business personal property of the association.  It is vital that the property of the association is insured for the amounts that it would take to replace  in the event of a total or partial loss. 

Property coverage limits are based on the value of the buildings.  The buildings can be insured at:

  • Guaranteed Replacement Cost – replacement cost with no limit and does not state a specific limit in the policy
  • Replacement Cost – the amount which pays for the loss based on the actual replacement and may be limited to the values insured on the association’s insurance policy
  • Actual Cash Value – the amount needed to replace the building minus depreciation

The replacement value can be ascertained by the Board and agent both reviewing the association’s governing documents for clear guidance on the areas of insurance responsibility for the unit owners and the association.  Your agent should have replacement cost valuation tools to assist in coming up with a proper valuation for your association.

  • These items are often considered parts of building coverage: 
    • Alarm systems
    • Appliances used for refrigeration, ventilating, cooking, dishwashing or laundering that are not contained within individual units
