"What is an HO-6 Policy and Do I Need It?"
The associations governing documents set the requirements for the association master policy coverage which in turn determines the coverage that a homeowner must carry. In the event of a claim, the board reserves the right to assess each homeowner a portion of the master deductible. Without adequate loss assessment coverage on your HO-6 policy, you may be required to pay this assessment out of pocket. Please contact your personal agent to verify that your HO-6 policy includes this important coverage. A HO-6 Policy adequately protects yourself from a special assessment due to wind or hail if the association were to file a claim. Proper coverage comes from your personal agent and without this coverage, you may be required to pay the assessment out of pocket. Most master policy insurance deductibles for wind and hail claims are based on apercentage of the building values which can result in special assessments for eachhomeowner in the thousands of dollars. It is critical for every HOA homeowner to beeducated on the importance of having the proper HO-6 policy
