When you own a condominium, the condo association will provide some insurance protection. But you’ll need to supplement that condo insurance with your own homeowners insurance policy — once you figure out what’s already covered. Sometimes, the association’s master policy insures the basic building but leaves to you the responsibility of insuring appliances and other items in your unit, says Anna Bryant, a spokeswoman for State Farm.
“Or the master policy insures both the basic building and the items within your unit other than personal property,” Bryant says. “Or it insures the basic building and includes unit-owner fixtures and improvements.”
Yeah, it can be confusing. See if you can guess which policy pays in the following scenarios.
