What cover options does ANZ landlord insurance offer?

ANZ landlord insurance offers three types of protection: combined building and contents insurance, building insurance and contents insurance. Here's what they do:

  • Building insurance. This looks after residential properties, including professional offices and surgeries, and more specifically the building itself. That means you're covered for any built-in parts of the building (like built-in air con and swimming pools) including walls, floors and ceilings as well as things like garden sheds, pipes, cables, meters and other permanent fixtures.
  • Contents insurance. This won't cover any of the above. Rather, it covers the contents of the property, including carpets, furniture, curtains, blinds, furnishings, removable appliances, non-permanent light fittings and more.
  • Building and contents insurance. This combines and covers everything listed above for full comprehensive protection.

    What additional cover options are included?

    If your property suffers loss or damage as a result of an insured event, building insurance can cover you for the following:

    • Architects, surveyors and legal fees
    • Demolition and removal of debris costs
    • Loss of rent
    • Mortgage discharge costs
    • Replacing and repairing keys and locks
    • Trees, plants and shrubs replacement
    With contents insurance, you'll also be automatically covered for the following.
    • Increase in sum insured. If your claim for a loss to your contents for the total sum insured is accepted, ANZ will increase your contents sum insured by 0.5% a month from the start of your current period of insurance up to the date of loss.
    • Loss of rent. If an insured event prevents your property from inhabitable, ANZ will cover you for loss of rent. The most they will pay is $52,000 and for no more than 12 months of rent.
    • Replacing and repairing keys/locks. If an insured event occurs, they'll have someone come out and replace or mend your keys and locks.
    • What's not covered?

      All policies have exclusions and it's important you know what you won't be covered for. Some of the main exclusions include:

      • Loss or damage caused by maintenance or repairs that have been carried out by the tenants, or on their behalf.
      • Loss or damage caused by pets.
      • Loss or damage caused by general wear and tear, including erosion and rust.
      • Past damage that has been left unrepaired.
      • Items owned by the tenant, including furniture, clothing and other personal items.
      • Rental default where you haven't taken all possible legal avenues available.
      • Contents that are not related to the letting of the property.
