LANDLORD INSURANCE for STRATA

- PUBLIC LIABILITY & CONTENTS -

You may not be fully covered!

What is CHU Landlords Insurance and do I need it?

CHU Landlords insurance is insurance cover for strata property owners who are renting out a unit/apartment to tenants. It is important as it provides cover for accidental loss or damage to contents in your unit from events such as fire, flood or storms. It covers items such as carpets, light fixtures, built-in wardrobes and kitchen cupboards as well as loss of rent if the unit is unfit to be occupied. Additionally, it covers you and your investment property for malicious damage to contents/buildings caused by tenants and/or their guests. It also covers you if your tenant fails to pay rent.

Do I need Landlords Insurance when my building has Strata Insurance?

Yes, Residential Strata Insurance only provides general insurance cover for the building, common/shared property and common/shared contents. The cover provided by the Strata Building policy ends when you cross the threshold of your individual property. Landlords Insurance protects you for tenant related loss/damage inside your property. The diagram shows what would be covered by the Strata Building Policy and your Landlords Policy.

Most landlords will need both forms of cover

Example Scenario

Following a heavy rain storm, incoming water damages your lounge room ceiling, walls and carpet and television estimated at $2,000 in damage. As the Landlords insurer CHU will cover replacement or repair of your water damaged carpet and television. If the Body Corporate/ Owners Corporation for your building also submits a valid claim on a CHU Residential Strata Insurance Plan for the same Insured Event, we will waive your $500 contents excess on your claim and pay your $2,000 claim.

Catastrophe Cover?  What does it Cover?

If a disaster is declared by the Government to be a Catastrophe then the sum insured cover for the property automatically is increased by up to 30%...ask us to quote if you need this optional cover.

Most Strata clients do take this option.

Protect your committee members against any claim against them whilst acting as an Office Bearer. It is optional but a very important one for your committee's protection

Lot owners sometimes upgrade their Lots without telling the Committee or the Insurer.

Those upgrades that permanently attach to the Strata Building can be partly covered under this policy.

This section is usually restricted to 10% of the Section 1 Property Sum Insured and can only be paid if the policy is not exhausted by other claims under Section 1.

State Strata laws make it mandatory to have at least $10m or $20m cover for each Body Corporate policy.
