Q & A
Q: What does my building’s master insurance policy cover?
A: An Association’s master insurance policy typically covers all common areas of the building. Another way to generally think about it is everything from your condo’s walls outward. Master insurance policies differ from building to building, but if you’re curious, your HOA can provide the terms and conditions specific to your master policy.
