Do You Really Need Condo Insurance?

Even though your Myrtle Beach, SC condo has insurance coverage through your association, you still need condo insurance to protect your individual unit. Your association insurance is designed to protect the exterior of your building and common areas, not your personal unit. With condo insurance from Benefit Insurance Services, you can protect your individual unit and personal goods against such risks as fire, storm damage, theft and more. Here’s why you need condo insurance.

Property Damage

With insurance protection, you can preserve your condo for years to come. Condo property damage insurance covers the interior of your unit to include ceilings, walls and floors. If a fire were to ravage your unit, your property damage insurance will help cover rebuilding costs. By taking precautions, you can protect your valuable investment from unforeseen disasters. 

Personal Belongings

If your condo was burglarized and expensive electronics, jewelry or artwork stolen, would you be able to replace these goods on your own? With contents insurance, your goods will be protected against theft or damage due to a break-in or other catastrophe. Contents insurance will cover such personal goods as furniture, appliances, electronics, clothes, jewelry, artwork and anything else you own. It even extends to the carpeting, cabinets, light fixtures and ceiling fans of your condo home.

With replacement coverage, your insurer will cover the cost of replacing your goods if they are stolen or suffer loss. An updated home inventory will enable you to keep track of your possessions to simplify making a claim if and when the time comes.

Liability

If you’re like most condo owners, you probably enjoy having family and friends over for special occasions or holiday parties. In the event of an accident, you could be held liable for damages. Liability insurance protects you against lawsuits by covering medical costs of visitors who are accidentally injured on your property.
