What Residential Strata Insurance Covers

Residential strata insurance is more than just another line item in your financial plan. It's a strategically designed protection system that absorbs the financial shock of unforeseen incidents and keeps your property investment safe and secure.

A few key parts make up this form of coverage, designed specifically for strata properties.

Building and Common Property Coverage

It's essential to know that strata insurance fundamentally covers the building structure and common property. This includes anything from shared spaces like swimming pools and gyms to essential infrastructure like roofs, walls, and elevators. Your insurance policy will shoulder the financial burden if a calamity strikes that damages these areas.

Public Liability

Imagine if a visitor or resident was injured on the shared property. Or if someone's personal belongings were damaged due to a fault in communal spaces. These scenarios fall under public liability claims, and your residential strata insurance covers this, too, making sure you're paid.

Voluntary Workers Coverage

This component is often overlooked but indeed crucial. If a voluntary worker sustains an injury while working on the common property, this section of your policy provides the necessary coverage. It's an added layer of protection that contributes to creating a safer community environment. Examples for voluntary workers would be a retired person who takes out the bins, or a kid who sweeps up the yard.

Office Bearers Liability

For those holding positions on the strata committee, there's a unique risk of being held liable for decisions or actions that impact the community. Residential Strata Insurance provides coverage to protect these individuals from personal financial loss.

Legal expenses

This covers the defence cost of the strata. At times there are disputes and legal action can be taken against the strata. Instead of using the sinking fund or having the owners pay out of pocket, this allows them to defend legal claims even if they were not held liable.

Why All Landlords Need Residential Strata Insurance

When you have a portfolio of investment properties to manage, securing these assets is the most important step of all. 

As a property investor, this type of landlord insurance is a proactive way of safeguarding your property portfolio.

Residential Strata Insurance serves as a contingency plan for unexpected property damage, liability claims, and other circumstances that could incur costly repairs or legal expenses. It helps protect your financial stability by covering substantial losses and liability claims that may arise. 

  • Financial Safeguard: Without proper insurance, you may face enormous out-of-pocket expenses for damages or lawsuits. With comprehensive coverage, these unexpected financial burdens can be significantly alleviated.
  • Risk Management: Unforeseen incidents like fire, flood, or theft can significantly impact your property. A robust residential strata insurance plan manages these risks by providing necessary coverage.
  • Legal Liability Insurance: This feature can cover legal expenses and damages if someone is fatally or seriously injured on your property.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How does residential strata insurance differ from regular home insurance?

    Residential strata insurance differs from regular home insurance in several ways. Firstly, it’s specifically designed for properties under a strata scheme, owners corporation or body corporate. This type of insurance covers common areas such as gardens, driveways, stairwells, and elevators shared by multiple unit owners.

    On the other hand, regular home insurance is more focused on individual properties like standalone houses. It mainly covers the actual building, its contents, and, to some extent, liability in case someone gets injured on the property.

    Another important distinction is that strata insurance usually includes liability coverage for incidents occurring in common areas, which sets it apart from typical home insurance. In essence, residential strata insurance and regular home insurance cater to the needs of different property owners, covering various aspects unique to their respective ownership structures.
