Illinois Condo Insurance

How do you know you’re getting the best protection without paying too much for your condo insurance?

Without enough protection, you could expose yourself to great personal risk. Illinois condo insurance is complicated. It’s different than homeowners and renters insurance.

What Makes Condo Insurance Different?

When you buy a condo, you typically become part of a condo association. In fact, you’ll pay a monthly assessment for that. That fee funds care of the common grounds of the association.

In addition to the common grounds (walkways, lobby, hallways, etc.) the cost of caring for the outside of the condo structure itself is part of the assessment you pay. A portion of that expense is insurance. In most cases, your association provides insurance for the exterior part of the structure only! All of the interior including drywall, flooring and cabinets will most likely be your responsibility in case of damage.

Furniture, electronics and all your other personal possessions will also be your responsibility to protect.

In addition, you may be held liable if anyone gets injured while in your home or if something you do results in damage to the common areas.

Five Questions to Ask About Illinois Condo Insurance

Since not every  condo association policy is the same, here’s some questions you will be discussing with our team of experts:

What does my association insurance cover and not cover?
What remains for me to insure?
How much would it cost to repair the inside of my condo?
How much would it cost to replace my belonging?
What protection do I need against liability claims?

Discussion and answers to these questions with the experts at Weiss Insurance will provide you with the sublime peace of mind that is the heart of all good insurance coverage.

You and your Weiss Insurance Agencies agent will consider these five main coverages:

1.) Condo Liability Coverage

It’s a cliche to say accidents happen, but it’s genius to have prepared for them ahead of time with the proper amount of liability protection.

This coverage will protect you if you or any other named insured are found legally responsible for any injury or property damage on or away from your property. It includes:

Compensation for the injured party
The cost of your defense
Most court awards

The coverage is good up to the policy limits. So, make sure, especially if you possess significant assets, you’re completely protected.

2.) Property Protection

You will be responsible for the interior of your unit. This will include cabinets, appliances, and light fixtures—everything inside your home.

In some cases, your total property limit may be enough to adequately insure what you own. However, if you have possessions in other property categories, your coverage may be limited. For example check the coverage limits on:

Money
Business samples or other property used for business
Computers
Trading cards
Watercraft
Jewelry
Firearms

Many condominium property insurance limits are $25,000. Carefully discuss your property situation with your agent. Make sure you have the protection you need.

3.) Guest Medical Protection

It doesn’t matter whether or not you’re held responsible for an accident that occurs in your home. This coverage will provide payments for reasonable medical expenses for the injured party up to the policy limit no matter who caused the accident.

4.) Additional Living Expenses

If a covered loss (fire, lightning, smoke, etc.) causes you to have to vacate your condo because it’s uninhabitable, this will cover expenses associated with living elsewhere. For example, it will pay your hotel bill, food and other reasonable charges.

5.) Loss Assessment Coverage

You are paying a monthly assessment to live in your condominium community. If your association decides to assess a special levy because of certain losses to your condo complex, this coverage will pay your portion up to the coverage limit (usually $1000).
