NAB Landlord Insurance Review

NAB landlord insurance is good for rewarding you if you don’t need to submit a claim and if your property is furnished.

We’re reader-supported and may be paid when you visit links to partner sites. We don’t compare all products in the market, but we’re working on it!

Our verdict

  • NAB landlord insurance comes with a 30% no claim bonus if you make no landlord insurance claims in 3 years — not many other insurers we looked at offer this.
  • It's good if you have a furnished flat — you can get 10% off when you combine building and contents cover.
  • Its 10% online discount isn't the largest offer available — competitors such as Budget Direct, Australian Seniors and Domain all offer more.

Review by our insurance writer Gary Hunter

warningSome landlord insurance policies have temporarily removed benefits such as rent default and a few others because of the pandemic. Make sure to check this with the insurer before deciding on a policy.
