Dear Unit Owners and Renters:

Master Policy Coverage & Personal Insurance Responsibilities
Building coverage under the Master Policy is written on an all‐in basis, which means coverage does extend within individual units to fixtures, appliances, wall and floor coverings and cabinetry according to the original plans and specifications, and any individual unit improvements, betterments, additions or alterations made subsequent to conveyance from the developer. For example, if kitchen appliances or bathroom fixtures have been upgraded in your unit, the Master Policy will cover these improvements or betterments. If wallpaper has been installed or a new wall constructed to divide a room, these additions and alterations are covered by the Master Policy. The Master Policy does not, however, provide coverage for your personal property or additional living expenses.
Building coverage under the Master Policy is subject to a $5,000 deductible per occurrence. Accordingly, the Master Policy will cover claims only when the damage caused by any one occurrence exceeds $5,000. In accordance with the Maryland Condominium Act, if the cause of any damage to or destruction of any portion of the condominium originates from a unit, the owner of the unit where the cause of the damage or destruction originated is responsible for the council of unit owners’ property insurance deductible not to exceed $5,000.
Coverage is provided under the Master Policy to protect unit owners against liability claims arising out of membership in the association.
