Facilitating the claims process with dedicated claims advocates that assist in claim process when needed
We’re happy to offer our policyholder’s the following
The association’s master policy typically provides coverage for common areas of an association, such as community amenities/structures provided for the resident’s use and residential structures when required by the governing documents.
General Liability Coverage/Hired and Non-Owned Auto Coverage
The association insurance must also address the potential for lawsuits. The association can be sued after a simple slip or fall on the grounds or when a volunteer is using their own car on association business.
Crime Coverage/Employee Dishonesty
This provides coverage for the theft of association funds or for other financial misconduct by an association board member, volunteer, or property manager employee.
Excess Umbrella Liability Coverage
This type of policy provides coverage over and above the association’s General Liability Policy Limit and Directors and Officers Policy Limit. They are available in amounts of $5 million–$50 million.
Directors’ and Officers’ Liability Coverage
This protects directors and officers of the homeowner association in their performance on the board.
Workers’ Compensation Coverage
This protects employees who work on the premises from the costs of work-related illnesses or injuries. It also protects the association for any hired labor that cannot provide this coverage on its own.
Damage caused by floods is typically excluded from the association master policy, however it can be endorsed on to a policy at the carriers’ discretion or on a separate purchased policy.
Master Condominium policies will normally exclude coverage because of earth movement or earthquake exclusion. Coverage can sometimes be provided by endorsement to the policy. If not, a separate Earthquake Insurance policy may be available from another outlet.
