When you are looking at purchasing homeowners insurance for a condo unit, there are some basic terms to learn in order to make an informed decision.
STUDS-IN VERSUS STUDS-OUT
- Studs-out policies are held by the HOA and cover the exterior of condo units, community-held group areas such as gyms, clubhouse, sidewalks, roofs, gutters, siding, elevators, and common hallways.
- What is left for the owner of the condo is called Studs-in insurance.
- A stud is a 2×4 beam that is used in the framing.
- Everything on the insides of the studs is your responsibility.
What Studs-in Insurance Covers
- Replacement of your structure in case it needs to be placed.
- This cost will be different from your purchase price.
- The cost of replacing all your personal items.
- The cost of living expenses while your home is being repaired or replaced.
- Liability insurance is also a good idea so that you’re covered if anything should happen to a visitor.
- Some HOA’s offer what’s called All-In coverage.
- This type of coverage covers Studs-out and Studs-In
- Only your personal possessions are not covered by this policy.
