While NJ is a small state in terms of land area, New Jersey boasts a big population. With nearly nine million people sharing a relatively small piece of land, real estate can be difficult to find. Among the many types of homes in New Jersey, condominiums and townhomes are popular choices. With many people in close proximity, the risk of damage to your condo increases. If a neighbor is negligent and causes a fire, or if a severe weather event damages your condo, you are responsible for the cost of repairing the interior of your home.

What Does New Jersey Condo Insurance Cover?
Your condominium association has a master policy that covers liability and repairs for the common areas, such as lawns, sidewalks, pools and parking areas. It also covers damage to the structure of the building, including the exterior walls, and sometimes the plumbing, wiring, and windows as well. An independent agent can look over your condo association's master policy, to help you determine whether windows and other variables are covered. Aside from exterior walls and roofing, a condo insurance policy provides much of the same coverage as a standard homeowners policy:
- Liability: Protects you from claims related to in-home accidents, including bodily injury and property damage, and related lawsuits, up to the limits of your policy.
- Property damage: Pays to repair interior walls, ceilings, floors, and fixtures in case of a storm, fire, or vandalism.
- Contents coverage: Pays to replace a portion of your personal property, including clothing, appliances, furniture, and electronics, in case of disaster or burglary.
If you only use your condo as a vacation home, you may need vacant condo coverage, to insure it while you are away. An independent agent can discuss this type of New Jersey condo insurance, as well as many others you may need.
What If I Rent a Condominium?
As with any other rental home, you can get renters insurance to cover the actual cost or the replacement value of your personal property, such as furniture and electronics. Most renters keep at least $20,000 in personal property in the home, so an inexpensive renters policy pays for itself many times over if you suffer a total loss catastrophe.
