Does it have legal liability?
Yes. All policies have a limit of $20 million from any legal claims and costs, which extends to your building if you're required to pay compensation for death or injury on your property and landlord contents that cause death or injury.
What excess do I need to pay?
If the worst should happen and you need to make a claim, you will often be required to pay an excess (unless otherwise outlined in your policy) for each claim you make. For example, if a fire damaged your house you would need to claim for the damage and pay an excess. Your excess amount for each claim will depend on your level of cover and the sum you're claiming.
How do I make a claim?
After an incident has been dealt with and information collected from any relevant emergency services or reports, contact Virgin Money as soon as possible to begin the claims process. You can lodge your claim online or over the phone, as well as access any benefits your policy grants you.
