Types of Condo Association Insurance
What kind of insurance does my Condo Association Need?
Have you recently been elected to a Condo Association Board or currently serve on a condo board? You may find that insurance is one of the biggest line items on your annual budget, and that there are quite a few different kinds of insurance your Condo Association pays for.
We strongly recommend that you contact us to schedule a free, independent review of the insurance policies carried by your Condo Association. We have been able to help many clients significantly reduce the insurance expense for their condo while providing identical or superior insurance coverage.
Who is managing the risk for your Condo Association?
If you only see your insurance agent when it's time to collect a check, you may be missing important coverage or paying too much. You want an insurance agent who is a specialist in condo association insurance, who knows market and insurance company trends as well as the details of coverages to better protect your Condo Association. Every year things change, and if your agent is not a specialist, you and your association could have gaps in coverage and be paying too much.
Is your agent a partner in managing your claims?
Another trend in today's insurance market is for agents to shift claims straight to the insurance carrier. The insurance carrier hires third party adjusters for their claims, and those adjusters are looking out for the interest of the company that hired them. With Mitchell Noel as your independent insurance agency, we are your advocate on all claims to help your association manage the claim from beginning to end.
Does your agent do an exposure and GAP analysis every year?
Every year, there are multiple changes in regulations and in specifics of your Condo Association's insurance coverage. They can be small changes that have little effect on your coverage, or big changes that can have a large effect. Every year, your agent should do an exposure analysis and risk management review of your association.
Are you in compliance with Florida Statutes related to your insurance?
Every year the Florida Legislature makes updates and changes to Florida Statutes 718 & 720. Does your agent review the changes made to the insurance sections of these statutes? Does your agent make sure you are in compliance with Florida Statutes?
