Body Corporate Cover

Tailored insurance for body corporate and strata committees

Flex Residential Strata Insurance covers your body corporate for all the essentials and lets you choose extras. It’s insurance you build yourself.

Automatic inclusions

Body Corporate is also called owners' corporation, strata corporation, corporation and strata company - depending on the state or territory.

Different states have different strata insurance requirements but since Flex Insurance are the experts in strata property cover, you can be sure that your Flex insurance covers all your essentials - the property, public liability and more.

Automatic inclusions (required by law):

  • Your property
    Naturally, the first thing you need to cover is your property. Your Flex insurance policy covers you and your body corporate for the cost of damage or repairs to buildings and common assets, including wiring and plumbing, carports and garages, flooring, and strata-owned fixtures that are part of the general fabric of the building.
  • Your liability to others
    If somebody visiting your property suffers an injury or asset damage, it could lead to a law suit against the owners corporation (body corporate). Public liability insurance helps to cover legal expenses and costs that the owners corporation (body corporate) may be ordered to pay due to negligence.

Your body corporate can choose

Every strata property is different and when it comes to body corporate cover, one size does not fit all. So, at Flex Insurance we let you tailor your insurance by adding in options that match your needs.

It’s simple, straightforward and saves you money.

Optional cover to meet your needs

  • Voluntary workers' cover

    Optional in all states and territories except NSW – where it’s compulsory – voluntary workers’ insurance covers anyone who is injured (or worse) while doing voluntary work for your owners corporation.

  • Fidelity guarantee

    Compulsory in SA, but optional everywhere else, fidelity guarantee covers your body corporate for losses that come about due to fraud or theft of body corporate funds.

  • Office bearers' legal liability

    If someone brings a lawsuit against the strata committee, this option can help cover the cost of defending the claim against the individual committee members and also cover any payments they are required to make.

  • Machinery breakdown

    If your property has lifts and elevators, this can save you a lot in repair bills. But it also covers things like fused motors in communal washing machines, basement water pumps and, in most states, even air conditioners.

  • Catastrophe cover

    If a major disaster strikes, such as bushfire or cyclone, the cost of repairs can skyrocket due to increased demand on builders. This option comes into effect after a government-declared catastrophe to cover such increases.

  • Government audit costs and legal expenses

    Provides cover in the event of a government audit, protection if the Body Corporate needs to appeal an unreasonable Order imposed by a statutory body and provides cover for legal defence costs.

  • Lot owners' fixtures and improvements

    This can cover any shortfall between your building’s estimated replacement cost and its actual replacement cost when improvements or renovations have been made by an individual property owner, which the body corporate might not be aware of.
