Florida Condo Insurance
Florida condo insurance (also called HO6 or condominium insurance) is a necessary safeguard for the contents in your home. It picks up where your HOA policy leaves off to protect your walls, furnishings, belongings, liability, and more.
Finding Condo Insurance in Florida
If you own a condo in Florida, you need condo insurance (HO6 insurance) to fill the gaps the homeowners association policy won’t cover. Good news for condo owners in the Sunshine State: it’s super easy to get condo insurance from Kin. We cover all types of condos – even those you own and rent out on home-share sites like Airbnb.
We cover condo owners of all walks, including those who:
- Live in a townhouse, rowhouse, or high rise.
- Use the condo as the primary residence, seasonal residence, or for short-term renting.
- Have a condo owned by an LLC or trust.
Because condo insurance doesn’t have to cover the entire structure of your place, it’s surprisingly affordable. Our coverage starts as low as $443 a year for some Florida counties.
Florida Condo Insurance Discounts
To help you save even more on your condo insurance in Florida, we’ll check to see if you qualify for discounts for:
- Strong wind mitigation features
- Smart home security systems
- Being a mature condo owner
- Choosing the Responsible Repair discount (i.e., agreeing to not sign away your claims benefits to a third party)
- Signing up for an electronic policy (save some trees!)
We can also recommend the deductibles that make sense for your budget. Typically, choosing slightly higher deductibles can reduce your condo insurance premium.
What Does Florida Condo Insurance Cover?
Your homeowners association has a “master” insurance policy to cover your building’s exterior and damage and accidents in common areas. But that policy doesn’t cover anything inside your unit. You need condo insurance for that.
Condo insurance covers your home from the walls in. That includes:
- The interior of your dwelling. This can help pay to repair or replace damaged ceilings, floors, additions, and more.
- Your personal property. This is where your policy really shines! It protects your furniture, appliances, clothing, electronics, decor, furnishings, and more.
- Loss of use. If a covered claim forces you to temporarily relocate, this can help pay for dining out, hotel stays, and more.
- Personal liability. If someone is hurt in your home and they sue, your policy can help cover legal expenses.
- Medical payments. This can help cover immediate medical expenses for guests who have a small injury in your home.
Our Florida condo insurance covers damage from all incidents except those explicitly excluded in your policy. So if the inside of your condo is damaged by fire, theft, vandalism, storm winds, or hail, you’re typically covered.
Standard policies usually don’t cover damage from:
- Earthquakes and mudslides.
- Flood damage (though you can always add on flood coverage).
- Demolition or seizure by the government.
Is Loss Assessment Coverage Included in Florida Condo Insurance?
All our condo insurance policies include $2,000 in loss assessment coverage. This can help pay for your HOA’s assessments for shared losses. This coverage can step in when those losses are caused by incidents your condo policy covers. It can potentially help you save thousands of dollars that would otherwise come out of your pocket.
You can always add on more loss assessment protection, too.

How Much Florida Condo Insurance Do I Need?
We can help you figure out how much condo insurance makes sense for your needs. There’s no “right” answer here – your coverage needs vary based on your lifestyle and the kind of belongings you have.
For example, if you have a condo full of antiques and high-value art, it might make sense for you to have more personal property coverage than general guidelines tend to recommend.
That said, the chart below illustrates some general suggestions for choosing your coverage limits.
|Common Florida Condo Coverage Limits|
|Type of Coverage||Typical Limits|
|Dwelling||Up to the replacement cost of the interior (we calculate this for you)|
|Personal property||20% to 50% of the coverage you have for your dwelling|
|Loss of use||20% of the coverage you have for your dwelling|
