Is homeowners insurance required?

genius guy,i think its a good idea to get homeowners insurance. If you own the house outright, then no it is not required but if you have a mortgage, then the institution that made the loan most likely does require it. They already have laid out the monies for the real estate they do not pay to insure it also. You can add your taxes and insurance into an escrow account the will include those expenses with your mortgage payment, that you pay monthly so as at the end of the year you do not have to come up with two lump sums of big money. The bank or mortgage company see's to it that not only do your monies go to mort. but the other two as well...It makes things easier...

Can an homeowners association in a community with multifamily units buildings like townhouses require the individual homeowners-members to carry full homeowners insurance?

Some boards may pass resolutions making this requirement, and the governing documents are specific about the percentage of owners required to vote in favour of such a resolution before it can go into effect. Insurance carried by owners protects not only the owners, but protects the association, because catastrophic damage is not generally limited by boundaries laid out in your governing documents. You can work with your broker to purchase the insurance necessary to protect your property and the common areas when your options are compared to what's already covered -- common areas, in the master policy. Your board cannot require that you over-insure, but best practices dictate that you insure so that there are no gaps in coverage.
