Should Connecticut Condo Associations Require Extra Liability Insurance From Contractors?
Dan, who owns a condo in central Connecticut, wants to know if his association is taking the right approach by requiring contractors to carry additional liability insurance when they work in the complex.
“It has been a practice of our management company to require contractors to hold additional liability insurance for the condo association and our management company when performing work on the premises. I can certainly understand that you can never have enough liability insurance, but usually this additional cost translates into an increase in the amount bid,” Dan wrote CtCondoNews.
“I’m told that this is standard practice, but I’d love to hear a different take on the matter if you have any knowledge on it? Is this something that SHOULD be required? Or would contractors that hold their own liability insurance be enough dependent on the job performed?”
