Condominium Insurance


Insurance Institute for Asia and the Pacific
Enrollment is Closed

Course Overview

This course will help you understand not only the importance of securing insurance coverage for your property but the nuances of acquiring insurance protection for a condominium. Buying insurance protection for a condominium building or unit is not as straightforward as that of other types of buildings with no “joint” ownership. Bear in mind that condominiums are governed by special laws and principles specific to condominiums. Therefore, insurance coverage on these types of buildings should be handled differently.

What You Will Learn

Upon completion of this course, the learners are expected to:

  • identify and understand the pertinent provisions in the law governing the ownership of a condominium;
  • appreciate the requirements of insurance companies when issuing an insurance policy;
  • procure the proper and correct insurance protection to ensure that they are adequately protected from fortuitous events; and
  • have a working knowledge of some insurance principles.
