Georgia Condominium Insurance (HO6)

Georgia is full of rich cultural cities from Atlanta in the Piedmont to Savannah on the Atlantic coast. Owning a condominium in these locations lets you settle down without having the maintenance a single-family home might require. Most people choose condominiums not only for the easy home maintenance, but also for the social atmosphere, making condominium living a popular choice for residents throughout Georgia. As a condominium owner, it is important to understand what is covered by your insurance policy and what the condominium association maintains. Keep in mind it is important to make sure that your insurance coverage is accurate. Schedule time with a Georgia insurance agent from Heritage to make sure you are up-to-date with local ordinances and laws to ensure your property is should disaster occur.

Condominium insurance coverage purchased by the condominium association typically only covers common areas. The condominium association’s policy will assess property damage or personal liability claims in common areas only, while your insurance policy would cover accidents or an injury in your specific unit. A Heritage agent would be happy to help you find out the amount of condominium insurance for your needs.

Items that are covered by the condominium association will be outlined in their master policy. A thorough review of the master policy will provide you with the information you need to obtain the proper amount of condominium insurance for your unit, and will help your Heritage agent to guide you to exactly what you need. Here are some coverage options for you to think about:


Personal Liability Insurance

Condo Insurance – Medical Personal Liability Coverage Personal liability insurance provides coverage toward property damage and bodily injury to others when it takes place in your dwelling. Personal liability covers not only your legal defense and damages if you are sued up to the limit of responsibility, but also provide for any medical payments if necessary. You could be liable for damages and medical payments if a guest in your unit is injured from a fall or other mishap, even if it is an accident. You could also be responsible for accidents that take place away from your property when they are caused by you or family members who live with you.

Georgia Loss Assessment Coverage

Condo Insurance – Loss Assessment Coverage In the event of a major disaster, your condominium may not be your only concern. Condominium association master policies also have limits, just like your personal insurance policy. If the condominium common areas, roof, or structure are damaged beyond the limits of the condominium association master policy, you and your nearby condominium dwellers might be required to make up the difference. When deciding how much loss assessment coverage to obtain, examine the coverage limits on the condominium association’s master policy and look for special deductibles describing certain hazards.

Personal Property and Valuables

Condo Insurance – Personal Property and Valuables Personal property coverage allows for the Actual Cash Value payment for clothing, household furnishings, and other personal property, up to specified limits, in the event of a covered disaster such as fire or a tornado. When discussing your personal property coverage with your Heritage agent, be very clear on the value of items in your home. It’s advised to take pictures and document your belongings in the event of a total loss. We also have additional coverage options available, including increased limits on jewelry, musical instruments, and fine art, as well as a replacement cost option on your personal property.

Permanently Attached Building Items inside the Condo Unit

Condo Insurance – Permanently Attached Building Items Inside the Condo Unit Your Heritage condominium insurance policy (H06) provides coverage for structures permanently attached to your condominium on the inside of your unit. This includes hardwood floors or valuable wall finishes that the condominium association’s master policy might not cover. Remember, it is crucial that you are covered for any damage to any portion of your unit, even if it is not part of your personal belongings.
