Why get common property insurance?

It is mandatory in Australia to have insurance that conforms to your state’s strata legislation. Common property insurance protects aspects of a property that the average home insurance policy doesn’t. With CommunitySure, you are protected for accidents, loss, damage, and many types of natural disasters.

CommunitySure also covers public liability (e.g. death or injury to a person on strata common property), office bearer’s liability, and personal accident/voluntary workers cover. An insurance policy may have exclusions.

Please see below the product disclosure statements for more details:
