Proof of Insurance

The proof of insurance is meant to assure you that the required insurance policies were taken out for the property in which your condominium is located. Pursuant to the German Condominium Act (WEG), it is mandatory for a condominium complex to have a residential building insurance against fire damage as well as a proper owner's liability insurance and a landowner's liability insurance As a rule, the insurance policies are taken out collectively by the home owner association for the entire building. The pro-rata costs are then allocated to each freehold owner in that building. The building insurance often covers storm and water pipe damage on top of fire damage. Other common insurance policies safeguard against damage by natural forces and vandalism.
