[09/17/18]   Your Condo Insurance Policy – It's Not Just About Price – It's Also About Protection




On July 24th, 2018, a condominium community in Sentry’s Maryland Division suffered a catastrophic loss from a tornado. The tornado clocked in with winds in excess of 100 mph causing significant damage to all 86 condominium units. Each unit sustained various levels of damage. Out of the 86 units, 17 of them were deemed uninhabitable and those owners had to seek alternative living arrangements. Sadly, many of the affected owners would be displaced for over a year.

Several owners quickly found out that they were under-insured for Additional Living Expenses, otherwise known as “ALE.” ALE includes coverage ranging from loss of use of your home or property to laundry service and food expenses. While some insurance carriers have a significant endorsement (policy limit) of ALE in their standard policy, others do not. That’s why we stress the importance of reviewing your policy annually with your agent. Sentry Management recommends that you work with a local agent or broker who knows the area to discuss all aspects of your policy.

Most people simply look at the price of their policy and not the protections, or lack thereof. Having the additional coverages are worth the minimal increase in premium when you consider the potential losses. Not having those coverages could result in having to continue paying a mortgage on the damaged home along with monthly rent for your temporary housing.

Condominium Unit Owners Insurance is directly affected by the association's bylaws. Owners should ask their insurance agent to review the insurance section of the association bylaws to identify any gaps in coverage on their personal condo insurance policy. For example, some associations spell out that the association's Master Condo Insurance policy ends “at the studs of the unit.” This means that you must have coverage in your policy to rebuild the entire unit, including floors, drywall, fixtures, cabinets, etc. Other association’s bylaws specify that the Master Condo Insurance policy covers the finished unit, which includes the original materials but NOT upgrades inside the unit. In either case, having an insurance expert review those provisions will result in a much more comprehensive policy for the owner.

Following are questions your condo owners should be asking their insurance agent:

What is my ALE endorsement limit?
Does my policy cover loss of use?
Is ALE and “loss of use” the same thing in my policy?
Do you recommend that I increase my endorsement in the event that I am displaced for a year or more?
In the event that I rent my unit, does my policy cover loss of rent?

Does ALE apply to single family homeowners in addition to condo owners? Absolutely! Homeowners can use these same questions when completing the annual insurance review with their agent.

Sheriff's Safety Tips for Summer - Please Lock Your Doors!

With summer approaching, the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office is once again reminding residents to lock your doors. These types of crimes increase dramatically over the summer months. Numerous high dollar items have been stolen throughout the county from unlocked vehicles. Many residents also have garage access from these cars, allowing access to garages and even inside the home. Be safe and lock your car(s) and home. Also, if you park your car on the street or in the driveway, be sure to hid or remove high dollar items, such as IPods, GPS units and cell phones, out of sight. Visible items incentivize thieves to break into cars. Should you be a victim of one of these crimes, please do report it to the Sheriff's Office at 703-777-1021.

Lakeshore SNOWFALL NOTICE

Depending on the snow accumulation projection, the snowplow will typically come by the property and do an initial clearing at 2-3 inches. The snow plow will then come back after the snow has fallen and depending upon how much snow was received, will need to make several passes throughout the property.

Snow is plowed and not actually removed from the community. This means there could be big piles of snow in some places which will likely affect parking. Be prepared that some spaces may be unavailable unless shoveled out by hand or until the snow melts.

The Lakeshore sidewalks will be cleared within six hours after the snow has stopped falling.

Please only use the Snow Melt provided at the front entrance for the sidewalk areas and porch areas. Please do not use the Melt to spread throughout your parking space.

Shoveling of individual parking spaces, around and behind cars is the responsibility of the homeowner.

Please do not shovel snow back into the street.

LCSO Reminds Residents of County Ordinances Regarding Peddlers and Solicitors

Loudoun County- The warmer weather brings an increase in door-to-door solicitors to our area. While some door-to-door salespersons are honest, the chance does exist that you may be taken advantage of if you are not cautious and informed.

All solicitors that operate inside the county are required to register with the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office per County Ordinance 828.04, except any person that is affiliated with non-profit organization registered in Virginia, places of worship, and community services. As part of this registration, a background check is completed and information on their employer is obtained.

(3) The date the permit was issued and the date of expiration;
(4) The name and address of the employer or principal;
(5) A physical description (height, weight, color of hair and eyes, complexion) and the date of birth of the applicant and the presence and location of marks and scars on the applicant;
(6) The signature of the County Sheriff; and
(7) A brief description of the nature of the business and the goods to be sold.

In addition to registering, all solicitors must uphold a code of conduct (County Ordinance 828.08). If a solicitor is found in violation of this code, their privileges will be revoked and they will not be authorized to solicit within Loudoun County for a period of one year.

Solicitation hours in the county are weekday 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Soliciting is not permitted on Sunday’s or state or national holidays. Solicitors must leave when asked by the property owner. Solicitors must conduct themselves in a lawful and orderly manner and must identify themselves and their purpose of being on the property.

Hazardous Condition at Lakeshore

The Lakeshore parking lot and sidewalks are very slick this evening. Please use caution if you have to go out this evening. Shenandoah Snow Management Services have been dispatched. They expect to complete all sanding and sidewalk treatments overnight.
Again, please use caution and feel free to use the melt buckets in the entrances ways on the sidewalks.

Comfenergy is on the property to add insulation to the attics in Buildings 1-6 to protect the sprinkler pipes from breaking.

They will be working on the property for the next 2 weeks.

They have temporally parked a truck in front of Building #3 for staging materials. Please don’t park around the truck so they can complete their work without issues.

Sorry for the inconvenience, but this work is necessary to protect our buildings.

PIPE FREEZING NOTICE

During cold weather spells, we have seen pipe breaks around on the Lakeshore property.

IF YOU HAVE A PIPE BREAK IN YOUR UNIT IMMEDIATELY DIAL 911.
o The Fire Department can quickly shutoff the water to your building and prevent additional water damage.

THEN CALL THE SENTRY MANAGEMENT OFFICE AT (540) 751-1888.

o If you see an open utility closet door, please try to alert the homeowner or call the Lakeshore site manager at 540-751-1888. The exposed pipes can quickly freeze and break.
o When the weather is very cold outside, let the cold water drip from the faucet served by exposed pipes. Running water through the pipe - even at a trickle - helps prevent pipes from freezing.
o Open kitchen and bathroom cabinet doors to allow warmer air to circulate around the plumbing. Be sure to move any harmful cleaners and household chemicals up out of the reach of children.
o The Lakeshore Board STRONGLY suggests wrapping the pipes around your hot water heater. You can either purchase pipe wrapping from a local hardware store or hire an AC/Heating professional.
o If you will be going away during cold weather, leave the heat on in your unit, set to a temperature no lower than 55° F.

Merry Christmas Lakeshore! We hope you have a safe and happy New Year!
