What Are Insurance Valuations?

The Replacement Cost Assessments (also called insurance Valuations) must be completed by Section 85 of the NSW Strata Schemes Management Act 2015 No. 50, and Regulation 39 in the Strata Management Regulation 2016. Strata Managers, on behalf of the Owners Corporation, obtain reports of insurance valuations from Archi-QS a well-known and competent professional company. After that, they are presented to the insurer in order to ensure the strata building's insurance.

Replacement Cost Assessments contain the suggested Capital Replacement Value to adequately ensure the reconstruction or partial reconstruction of a building in event of its destruction in the scenario of a natural catastrophe or fire. Although the cost of construction is the primary element of the Replacement Cost Assessment, however, there are additional significant costs to take into consideration. This includes the cost of official and professional charges as well as the cost of inflation, demolition, and removal of debris, as well as the costs of all outside groundwork.
