|Executive Committee Members|
If you are a member of the Executive Committee, it is highly recommended that you ensure the Owners Corporation takes out Office Bearers Liability insurance. This insurance is discussed at each AGM.
A number of unit owners are not aware that the Owners Corporation Insurance does not cover carpet, paint and other personal property or liability claims inside their unit.
In the event of a roof leak, sewer overflow, burst water pipe etc in a unit, the Owners Corporation is not able to pay for your costs in repairing any damage to items other than common property.
We strongy recommend that you contact your insurance company or broker to arrange a suitable insurance policy for your requirements.
