Condo by-laws vary in Michigan, but owners are generally responsible for their liability coverage and the interior of their units. Those who own condos may assume that their homeowner's association insurance covers incidents like fires, lightning strikes, theft, and vandalism.
But, likely, your association's insurance doesn't cover things like your personal belongings and improvements.
Your condo association's master policy covers damage to common areas and the exterior of the building, but you may need to buy a separate condo insurance policy called HO6. By getting a copy of your by-laws, you'll know your responsibilities in case of a claim.
We can help you understand the fine print and get you a condo insurance policy that protects your belongings.
Insurance for Town-Homes
In addition, it is essential to understand that some townhomes are insured just like condos and require an H0-6 policy to be in place. Therefore, you must have the right kind of insurance coverage if you live in a townhouse.

Is Condo Insurance Required?
Most lenders require you to obtain condo insurance to safeguard your financial interests, like homeowners insurance.
Even if you have paid off your mortgage and purchased the property outright, you might still be on the hook for condo insurance, as many homeowners associations require it.
