Condo unitowners
coverage options

State Farm® offers a number of coverage options so you can get the insurance that best fits your needs.

 

Standard condo unitowners coverage

Standard condo unitowners coverage

Whether it’s building property, personal property, loss assessment, personal liability or medical payments to others, we’re here to help.

Building property
Coverage A

Insures your items of real property, including building additions, alterations and installations which are part of your unit and are your insurance responsibility according to the governing rules of the condominium association.1

Personal property
Coverage B

Protects personal property in your home like clothes or furniture. It can also help provide protection for the personal property you take with you while away from home.

Loss of Use
Coverage C

If a fire, explosion, tornado or other insured loss causes your unit to be uninhabitable, you might need somewhere else to stay. Loss of Use covers the necessary increase in cost to maintain living conditions during the period of repair. The amount of coverage may be limited to a dollar value or your actual costs for up to a specified time. Review your limit with your agent.

Loss assessment
Coverage D

Uniquely designed for owners in condominiums/associations, loss assessment coverage recognizes the potential for owners to be assessed for certain kinds of loss. What type of circumstances might require the condominium association to assess all unit owners?

  • Someone is seriously injured on common property (like a swimming pool) and the courts award a judgment that's higher than the amount of liability coverage provided by the condominium/association policy.
  • Major damage occurs to commonly owned buildings and it is not fully covered by insurance.

For covered losses, loss assessment coverage would pay your share, up to the limit of coverage you select. You should review the need for this coverage with your agent and buy an appropriate amount of coverage.

Personal liability
Coverage L

Protects you if others make a claim or bring suit against you for bodily injury or property damage for which you or a covered resident of your household are responsible, either in your home or elsewhere and to which coverage applies.

In addition to settlement costs, this coverage may pay defense costs and court costs, even if a suit brought against you is groundless.

It is essential that you select liability limits high enough to protect your assets. If you need more protection than your regular policy limits, consider a personal liability umbrella policy. It adds an extra layer of personal liability protection for exposures you may have from your car policy, your boat policy (if you have one) and your condominium unitowners (homeowners) policy.

Medical payments to others
Coverage M

This coverage pays medical expenses for covered claims up to the limits in the policy for people who are on your premises with your permission and are accidentally injured. The coverage also extends to people accidentally injured by your activities. However, the coverage does not pay for medical expenses for you, your family members or other individuals that regularly reside with you or on your insured location.

weather coverage

Debris removal

Ownership
& rental coverage

Ownership & rental coverage

Absentee ownership coverage

If you own a home in a condominium/association but rent it to others all or most of the time, special insurance arrangements can be made. If you’re in this situation, please contact your agent for a complete review.

Additional living expenses

Covers the actual loss incurred for necessary increased expenses over and above what you normally spend for food, shelter, and related items for the shortest time required to repair or replace the premises, or for your household to settle elsewhere; up to 24 months for covered claims.

Fair rental value

Covers the actual loss sustained for rental income from that portion of your condominium unit that is rented to others or held for rental for the shortest time required to repair or replace the part of the premises rented or held for rental, up to 12 months for covered claims.

Inflation

This coverage automatically increases the amount of condominium unitowners insurance coverage on your building property and personal property as inflation changes the cost of replacing your property. The changes are based on the movement of an inflation index and are reflected in the premium on each renewal.

Structural coverage

Collapse

May cover property damage resulting from building collapse caused by certain perils.

Damage to the property of others

Provides payment of certain property damage to property of others accidentally caused by an insured.

Locks

Pays to re-key, replace, recode, program, or reprogram the exterior locks to your home and other structures located on the residence premises when the keys or remote devices used with those doors are part of a covered theft loss.

Temporary repairs

Covers temporary repairs incurred to protect covered property from further damage for covered claims.
