Strata Insurance Claims<< Back to Blog
INSURANCE CLAIMS ARE JUST ONE LANDMINE IN THE MINEFIELD OF STRATA
Insurance companies are constantly refuting claims based on improper workmanship performed on properties as well as lack of maintenance over time.
Strata schemes must ensure that any work required to repair common areas is properly scoped (“fix pipe” is not a scope of works surprisingly enough), clearly defined and undertaken by licensed contractors, not general contractors. Ensure that the contractor has the proper insurances and expertise to carry out the work.
If you are in a self managed complex you should be very aware of the legalities you face when trying to lodge an insurance claim.
To avoid these and other minefields please don’t hesitate to contact us at the Body
