Homeowners Association Insurance in Grand Junction, Montrose and surrounding areas in Colorado
Regardless of the size of your association, be it in Grand Junction, Montrose, Colorado, or abroad, we work with you to ensure your community association gets the right coverage.
Purchasing insurance is one of the most important buying decisions the board will make. Risk management decisions and coverage must meet or exceed any requirements mandated by the state and the association's governing documents.
Start EARLY! It is usually wise to start at least 90 to 120 days prior to the renewal of your existing policy. Then
Order an updated loss history from insurance companies which have provided coverage to the association for the past three to five years.
Check with the current agent whether the existing insurance company is likely to be offering a renewal.
Check Loss History Accuracy-- losses can be miscoded, or a loss should have been attributed to a different insured. It is also possible your loss history doesn't accurately reflect today's condition of the property. If there have been steps to improve the property since the losses occurred, make sure to let us know.
Assemble a Bid Package-- this will help us greatly in ensuring you have the proper coverage and we have the information to provide an accurate quote for you. The bid package should include:
Brief description of the property, including the number of units, year built, type of construction, overview of the amenities (pools, spas, etc.) and any other structural improvements the association may have insurable interest in.
Copies of the governing documents.
Copy of the site plan.
Any losses and claims in the past three years.
Copies of the association's current financial statement and budget.
Appraisal if one is avalilable.
