In our video series Michael Vumbaca, General Manager at Jamesons Strata discusses what you need to know about insurance in strata.

Insurance commissions can make up a huge part of a Strata Management Company’s revenue.

What is an insurance commission?

An insurance commission is a commission paid to the Strata Management Company as a result of them placing insurance for the Strata plan for a period for up to 12 months.

Often an insurance commission can be an amount up to 20 percent of the total sum of the insurance policy. So for any single Strata Management Company, this can result in huge volumes of money over a 12 month period.

At Jamesons, we don’t accept any commissions whatsoever, so your insurance premiums is generally reduced by 20 percent each year when we place your insurance.

Your Strata manager has an obligation to provide on the annual general meeting papers each year the sum of any insurance commission that they received, and any commission they may receive over the next 12 months. Look out for this on your AGM papers. This single change created huge waves across the industry, as it is a huge revenue spin-off for Strata Management Companies.
