Why Building Insurance is important

You can’t control the weather or other unexpected events like theft or accidents. But you can protect yourself against the loss and damage they cause. Our Residential Building Insurance policy provides cover for the cost to repair damage, as well as the loss of rent you incur whilst the repairs are being undertaken.

Combine
and save

If you own a freestanding building, combine one of our Landlord Insurance products with our Residential Building Insurance and receive a 10% discount on your Residential Building Insurance policy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing claims resolution and great price I've had landlord insurance and made a claim last year, as my tenants had trashed my house. Terri Scheer were nothing but amazing in the claims process, they were one step ahead of me the whole time, I never had to call them to prompt the process. I've now taken out a building policy too, which was about $500 less than my current insurer. Given the no choice for monthly payments is inconvenient for me, I prefer monthly, I would still highly recommend them and their service! Thank you
