    Hi,

    I have done 3 villa development on 728 sqm and R40 zoned land. So basically only common property is driveway. I own entire development and planning to keep them long term. Construction has finished just now and i am in process of registering strata plan with landgate to separate 3 lots.

    1.what kind of building insurance i should get now i.e. normal or strata insurance ?
    2.if normal insurance, then who is responsible for driveway insurance ?
    3. Can i get separate insurance for each villa and separate insurance just for driveway ?

    With mine I just get one Body Corp insurance policy to cover all, buildings and common areas. You should be able to insure before Body Corp is officially set up, then advise them the name later.
    Then I get another single policy for landlords and contents for the units.

    Why do you need contents insurance if you are giving them on rent ?

    I don't think you need a body corporate for 4 units or less (in WA).
