Strata Title Insurance
If loss or damage was to happen to your strata building or the shared contents of the building, you dont want to be left with the financial burden of the repairs.
Strata Title Insurance (also known as body corporate insurance) provides protection for residential properties managed under strata title legislation or a body corporate entity.
This policy typically covers damage to the building itself as well as common or shared property, such as pathways, walls, fences, lifts and carparks.
