As of 2020, CSCA #10 does not carry earthquake coverage for the common area. Any owners interested in coverage are free to obtain in their own insurance. An earthquake anchor policy, MOTUS, was approved by the Board of Directors on November 22nd, 2019. You may fill out the application below to sign up for the coverage which fits your needs. This anchor policy is meant to cover an owners separate interest in the case of an earthquake, including any special assessments up to the coverage amount that are levied against all owners should a quorum choose to rebuild. If you have any questions about the coverage you can reach out to MOTUS. Their contact information is on the attached application.
Homeowners Coverage (HO6)
All owners are required to hold Homeowners Insurance Coverage for their private property. Currently, the CC&R's only require dwelling coverage, but we recommend that all owners also carry a minimum of $1,000,000 in liability coverage. There is not a current minimum requirement. See the CC&R excerpt below for what is required:
Section 12.5 Rights and Duties of Owners to Insure. It is mandatory that each Owner maintain insurance for the contents in their Unit and any other item which the Association is not obligated to maintain or repair, including but not limited to, the insurance proposed in this Article XII. However, any such policies shall include a waiver of subrogation clause acceptable to the Board of Directors and to any first Mortgagee.
Section 12.6 Payment of Premiums and Deductible. Insurance premiums for the master policy shall be a common expense to be included in the monthly assessments levied by the Association. Each Owner shall be responsible for payment of any deductible amount for any loss to his or her Unit or component which he/she is responsible to maintain.
