One thought on “September Update – Meeting on OMC Insurance

  1. Hi, I have just come across this group now, and unfortunately missed this session on Insurance in September. Are there any minutes, or notes on how to mitigate the risk of insurance rising? I am a Director of an OMC with a relatively poor claims history, and our premium has more than quadrupled in 2 years.

    I want to look at putting more of the financial burden (of claims) on bad landlords to bring their apartments up to standard.

    Many thanks,
