Residential strata insurance, also called body corporate insurance, covers common contents and property under the management of a strata title or body corporate entity.
Owners of strata units typically share the premium costs of strata insurance as part of their strata fees and liabilities. Strata insurance is mandatory and must also provide public liability covering people that may be injured on common property.
Each state and territory has different legislative requirements that deal with insurance for strata title properties. Check that your insurance meets those legislative requirements. Your Body Corporate has a duty to insure the property and make sure the policy purchased meets the minimum legislative requirements.
We provide specialist knowledge of State and Territory legislative requirements for insuring strata properties and understand that every property has different insurance requirements.
