Court Finds Tenant is Insured under Condo Association Policy

A condominium association is a named insured under an association's property insurance policy, but the owner of each unit within the condo is also insured under the policy. A Washington court recently held that tenants of unit owners are also presumed insured under a condominium association's property policy so long as the parties did not agree otherwise.
