Strata Building Replacement Cost

At Melbourne Property Valuers Metro, we have a team of expert property valuers who specialise in building insurance for strata property schemes. Currently, under the current strata legislation, the owner’s corporation within the strata scheme are required to seek out an independent replacement cost estimate report for all building insurance policies.

Under this report our senior property valuers will determine the current market value in order to establish the building replacement costs. Under the strata legislation, a replacement cost estimate is used solely for maintaining an updated policy for reinstatement and replacement insurance. This insurance will cover public liability and all common property within the scheme. Because of this, it’s important that the owners corporation seek out a professionally detailed and independent report to assist the correct calculation for replacement costs.

Strata properties require their insurable amount to be valued and renewed every few years to ensure that the property is sufficiently protected in the event of disaster. There are very important and strict provisions under the current strata legislation that call for all property to be correctly insured and, to do this, a certified property valuer is required to correctly assess the replacement cost of the total property. All Victorian Owners Corporations must have adequate insurance to ensure the building is covered.
