A residential investment property needs to be appropriately protected. Insurance can give you the peace of mind and confidence that your property will be looked after should something go wrong. Allianz Landlord Insurance through Aussie covers the property and/or the contents you provide for your tenant’s use.
To help you decide the cover you need, here’s a brief outline of the difference between Buildings and Contents cover.
Designed to cover the physical structures that make up your property, like the house itself, garage, sheds, permanently installed swimming pools and decks. Generally for customers who own a freehold home – like a house, townhouse, terrace or semi-detached dwelling.
Designed to cover items at your property – from furniture, removable domestic appliances and white goods which belong to you as the landlord and that you have provided for the use of your tenant. It also covers your carpets and window furnishings.
The better you understand your policy, the easier it will be if you ever have to claim. Here is a limited summary of the benefits of a Landlord insurance policy.
