Your condo association’s insurance policy likely covers certain aspects of your condo, such as common or shared areas. As a result, it may cover your condo unit, but not any improvements you make or fixtures you add to the condo. It also won’t cover your personal possessions. Condo insurance is designed to make up for this shortfall. It’s a mixture of the better-known landlord insurance and renters insurance, but is specially designed for your particular condo.
