Insurance for condominiums differ in some ways from regular home insurance. While condo owners are responsible for insuring their own personal property within the building, they are not solely responsible for other areas of the building that are shared with other residents. Typically, each member of the building will contribute to a condo association, which purchases insurance for the common areas. If your personal space in the building is damaged or the common areas are damaged, the insurance companies should respond in good faith and supply you with the necessary financial assistance to make repairs according to the terms of the policy.
