Strata Insurance

Strata Insurance is required if you are an owner of a townhouse, unit, apartment or strata business, and you share common space with others.

What is Strata Insurance?

If you are an owner of a townhouse, unit, apartment or strata business, and you share common space with others, Strata Insurance is required. It is mandatory to hold strata insurance which conforms to each state’s relevant legislation. It covers shared contents and damage to the building.

Who needs it?

Residential strata insurance is compulsory in every state. Strata groups can include townhouses, units, flats, apartments or duplexes. Business owners who work in a strata building should also consider Strata Insurance.

Cover is usually managed by an appointed strata manager, and in some instances an insurance broker can take care of it on behalf of the owners’ corporation.
