The Importance of HOA Insurance

Every Homeowner Association (HOA) must have the proper insurance to protect themselves.  A comprehensive insurance program that protects against personal injury, damage claims, and casualty losses is essential.

HOA’s will always face the risk of severe financial consequences from property loss by fire, wind and other uncontrollable circumstances.  There may also be liability claims associated with the management of the swimming pool, hot tub, workout facility, playground and any other areas on the grounds.  HOA’s should have a professional insurance agent review what areas need to be insured and also the value of their property.  General Liability and Directors and Officers Insurance are very important for any HOA to protect the members of the board against decisions made on behalf o the Association that may cause damage to others in the association.
