IOA Tampa Bay is one of Florida’s leading insurance specialists. We pride ourselves in the ability to help condo owners access the coverage they need and deserve.
Florida condo insurance is a specific coverage policy designed to fit the unique needs of condominium owners. Many confuse condominium insurance with a renter’s policy, because both offer personal property and liability protection. However, condo owners need to consider the additional coverage that may be needed for the building based on their condominium association’s overall master policy.
Typically, your condo association insures the building based on one of two approaches: bare walls or single entity. A “bare walls” approach means the association will insure only the building including walls, the roof, floors, elevators, etc. The association is not responsible for insuring anything inside your unit such as appliances, cabinets, carpeting, wallpaper, plumbing, electrical wiring, etc. In comparison a “single entity” coverage plan means that your condo association insures the building as well as particular fixtures inside of your unique unit including carpeting, cabinets and appliances. However, it’s important to remember that in both scenarios you are still responsible for insuring your own personal belongings and possessions.
How do you determine how much coverage you need from your condo insurance?
Florida clients, with IOA Tampa Bay on their side, will be fully educated on the benefits of a condo policy and will receive a detailed explanation of what it insures.

When considering the level of security you want from your Florida condo insurance, ask yourself:
- What is the association responsible for insuring?
- What am I responsible for insuring?
- How much coverage do I need for my possessions?
- Do I have replacement cost or actual cash value coverage for my possessions?
- Are there policy limits for my valuables? Should I purchase more coverage for those items?
- Do I need earthquake or flood coverage for my unit or possessions?
