Flood Insurance for Condo’s
Condo properties invest in flood insurance which means that individual unit owners pay part of the premium for flood insurance as part of their condo fees. Condo unit owners own the common areas of a condo building too. This is why HOA members pay part of the flood insurance premium. 

What Does Flood Insurance Cover for Condo Members?
Condo insurance covers each unit. Each unit has flood insurance coverage for the floor and floor coverings, and the walls and ceilings. Electrical fixtures, water heaters, appliances, water heaters and filters, and the countertops and cabinets. All of these parts of a condo unit are covered under the standard flood dwelling policy. Flood insurance coverage for condo unit owners applies to improving and restoring individual condo units first and then the common areas of a condo. Flood insurance will restore the floors, ceilings, and walls, as well as the appliances and other interior countertops and cabinets.
