Co-Op Insurance: What You Need to Know

When buying a co-op apartment there is a lot of information to consider before committing to a decision. As a co-op owner, you share the walls, hallways, basement, roof, elevator and walkways. You may also share common services such as lawn mowing, garbage collection, and snowplowing. What gets tricky, however, is the insurance.

A co-op association will have a master policy for the co-op complex, covering the common areas mentioned earlier. In an earlier post, we provided questions to help determine which master policy your co-op association possesses, and what kind of co-op insurance coverage you will need. Your co-op association will have one of three types of master policies:

  • Bare walls: This policy covers the structure, fixtures, and furnishings shared or common areas within the condominium complex.
  • Single entity: This policy covers everything within the bare walls policy, along with certain fixtures inside condo units (e.g., carpeting, cabinets, appliances).
  • All inclusive: This policy is the most extensive as it covers everything in the condo except for personal property the owner brings into the unit (e.g., clothes, bicycles, artwork).

Knowing the master policy of your co-op association is only the first step in making a fully informed decision about the co-op insurance policy you choose. Luckily we can help you determine what kind of coverage, and how much insurance you will need to feel secure at your co-op.
