Strata – Residential & Commercial
Residential Strata insurance (also known as body corporate cover in some states) is general insurance that covers common property under the management of a strata title or body corporate entity. Owners of strata titles typically share the premium costs of strata insurance as part of their strata fees and liabilities.
Commercial Strata insurance covers the building, common property and common contents for commercial strata title properties. Insurers will consider each tenancy within the building and the risks associated with the occupation of the tenant which could lead to a potential claim. We deal with a number of insurers who specialise in risks which are harder to insure due to the high level of risk imposed by one or more of the tenancies.
Holding strata insurance is mandatory under each state’s relevant strata legislation.

PI, also known as errors & omissions in some places, is a form of liability insurance that helps protect those who provide professional advice, and service-providing individuals and companies from bearing the full cost of defending against a negligence claim made by a client, and damages awarded in such a civil lawsuit. The coverage focuses on alleged failure to perform on the part of, financial loss caused by, and error or omission in the service or product sold by the policyholder. These are causes for legal action that would not be covered by a more general liability insurance policy which addresses more direct forms of harm. Professional liability coverage sometimes also provides for the defence costs, including when legal action turns out to be groundless. Coverage does not include criminal prosecution, nor a wide range of potential liabilities under civil law that are not allowable under the policy, but which may be subject to other forms of insurance. Professional liability insurance is required by law in some areas for certain kinds of professional practice, and is also sometimes required under contract by other businesses that are the beneficiaries of the advice or service.
