Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value The other insurance companies seem to be colluding as all their prices are the same. Terri Scheer had better pricing which as a landlord is what I need .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sensible product with a sensible price Not certain as to how to review this product, as I have just bought my first policy with Terri Scheer. But as it is recommended by Canstar, I imagine it is a very good product.
