Residential Strata

Residential Strata Insurance provides lot owners, developers and managers of strata properties with comprehensive protection specifically pertaining to living in a strata community.

Residential Strata Insurance policies cover material damage as a result of insured peril to structural fixtures including fixed plant, machinery and underground services.

Holding strata insurance is mandatory under each state’s relevant strata legislation. However, each state and territory has different legislative requirements that deal with insurance for strata title properties.

Our dedicated strata insurance brokers will always check that your insurance meets those legislative requirements.
