Why Landlord Insurance is important

Landlord Insurance covers you for tenant-related losses. Things like loss of rent due to a tenant breaking their lease or being evicted, or damage caused to your contents by tenants, like drink spills on carpets. Other insurance may not cover these events, and very often, the bond won’t be enough to cover the associated costs.

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.
