CHU Underwriting Agency

CHU specialises in providing comprehensive insurance products for strata schemes, including residential strata apartments, units, villas and townhouses, commercial strata, and community title properties. In addition, CHU offers commercial strata insurance and personal insurance (landlords or contents insurance) to protect strata customers’ personal property and possessions.

CHU created the first residential strata insurance plan in Australia and started trading in Sydney in 1978. Now, more than 45 years later, CHU has grown to become recognised as a leading strata insurance specialist, underwriting more than 100,000 schemes across Australia, which equates to an insured value of over a half a trillion dollars. CHU is part of the Steadfast Group, the largest general insurance broker network and group of underwriting agencies in Australasia.

CHU’s strata insurance products are regularly updated to ensure they continue to offer market-leading cover. It is mandatory across Australia for strata title properties to have insurance. CHU’s insurance products are designed with each state and territory’s minimum regulatory requirements in mind to assist an owners’ corporation/body corporate in obtaining cover for their property.
