Standard Condo Unit Insurance
Condos are great. You get many of the benefits of homeownership, usually at a lower cost and reduced level of upkeep. You even get to share some of the expenses — and risks — with your fellow owners.
But some things are entirely your responsibility. You must protect your personal belongings and your liability for people getting hurt — and even the building materials used to finish your unit.

Limited coverage for your small valuables
Narrow coverage for for claims and lawsuits against you
