Condo insurance protects what your association doesn't
Condo insurance covers your personal property, as well as the interior of your building, which includes the walls, flooring, countertops, cabinets, and personal liability insurance; in addition to temporary living expenses in the case of a covered loss.
Your condo association’ general insurance policy mainly covers the grounds, common areas (such hallways and elevators), and the exterior/physical construction of your unit. However, the association’s insurance policy does not cover your personal goods or the interior of the condo.

Common questions about condo insurance
Each HOA will have different requirements, but your condo association may not require you to have a condo insurance policy. They might however ask you to contribute to the cost of the HOA's general policy by paying dues. Keep in mind that if you're financing your apartment, you'll require condo insurance.
It is always a good idea getting a renters insurance, even if your condo association or landlord don’t demand one. This insurance is typically inexpensive and can cover both your personal belonging and liability claims, in the event that you are held liable for the injuries or property damage of others.
Condo insurance, like homeowners insurance, provides coverage for your personal property, liability-related injuries on your property, and temporary living expenses.
However, the main difference is that condo insurance does not provide coverage for damage to your home's exterior, including garages and external walls.
Additionally, your condo policy might not provide liability protection against accidents in your condo complex's common areas, such as the corridors and parking lots.
In case your townhome needs a condo association membership, you can insure your property with a condo insurance policy.
However, if you're in charge of maintaining the exterior of your townhome, you'll need a homeowners policy that covers both the interior and exterior of your unit.
