ING Landlord Insurance policy options
You can buy an ING Landlord Insurance policy by adding cover to a home insurance policy. All you have to do is specify how the property is occupied during the application process. After that, you'll see that you can choose from; home only, home & contents and contents only.
If you have an unfurnished property, ING's home only landlord insurance policy might be the right option for you. This policy is designed to protect the physical structure of the building by insuring against certain events like fire, storms and malicious damage.
Home & contents
If you rent out a furnished property that comes with all the bells and whistles, then a combined policy is a good idea. This policy insures damage to the building, but also the things that you let your tenants use like TVs, fridges and washing machines.
This type of policy could be useful for a landlord who owns a property that's part of a strata unit. Strata would usually take care of insuring the building, so you'd only have to worry about the contents, fittings and fixtures.

ING landlord insurance excesses
An excess is a payment that you usually need to make whenever you submit an insurance claim. With ING, you'll need to pay an excess for every incident that results in loss or damage to your property and its contents. In some cases, depending on the claim, this can include paying an additional excess. These will be outlined on your certificate of insurance. ING will also let you know whether to pay the excess to a repairer, supplier, directly to ING or if it will deduct the excess from you.
