Strata Title Insurance is applicable to property, subdivided land and any building on the land into lots and common property.
Each Lot consists of 'units' or 'apartments', which may cover the building itself (any area owned by the owners which form part of the lot).
Common property covers everything above, below and around the building and its land that is not already contained in any current strata lot(s). This includes: stairs, driveways, car parks, paths, gardens, etc.

Strata Title Insurance for Owners Corporations
In general terms, an Owners Corporation is responsible for the following main insurances:
- The main building and any outbuildings
- Public liability
- Workers Compensation
- Voluntary workers cover
Each State and Territory in Australia provides separate terms and conditions when it comes to Strata Schemes being enforced.
Buildings which include common contents and property may be covered as well as Liability, Workers Compensation and Fidelity Guarantee.
Public Liability Insurance is essential to insure against death or injury to a person or damage to property. Public Liability Insurance coverage will generally range from $5,000,000 to $20,000,000, depending on the situation.
Lot owners should consider Public Liability for any special circumstances involving their lot which is not covered by the insurance taken out by the Owners Corporation. Understanding what is and isn't covered under the insurance policy put in place by the Owners Corporation is of extreme importance.
Smart Business Insurance place cover for many Owners throughout Australia whether it be for single lot dwellings or large common property apartments.
