Do I need Strata Insurance?

When you own a home that shares common property, things can get complicated. If buildings, outdoor areas or items are damaged, you want to make sure you have cover in place.

That’s why our Strata Insurance - associated with body corporates or owners corporations - covers residential buildings within a complex and its common areas such as garages, driveways and swimming pools. You can also add cover for common contents, such as lawnmowers and washing machines.

Strata Insurance is a legal requirement and normally the responsibility of the strata title owners, with the cost split between the individual unit owners. If you live in one of the following, chances are you need Strata Insurance.
