Cover for the unexpected

Legal liability

Allianz will cover your legal liability up to $20 million for payment of compensation relating to death, bodily injury or illness, and/or physical loss of or damage to property caused by an accident (or series of accidents). If you have contents cover only, it does not cover any legal liability you may incur as owner of the buildings unless the buildings are defined as a lot.

Making your buildings environmentally friendly

If your buildings are totally destroyed and need to be rebuilt, in addition to your buildings sum insured, Allianz will pay up to $5,000 (after deduction of any government or council rebates) to help you make the new buildings more environmentally friendly. 

Landlord contents

Allianz will pay for repair or replacement of contents you own and provide for your tenant’s use as a result of an insured event. If you select buildings cover, Allianz will pay up to $10,000. Alternatively, if you select contents cover, Allianz will pay, up to the sum insured.

Rental costs after an insured event

If your buildings are damaged by an insured event and can’t be lived in by your tenant, or access to or use of the buildings is not possible after an insured event Allianz will pay for your loss of rent on the buildings for up to 12 months.

Landlord Insurance Calculators

It’s up to you to decide the sums insured, and the type and level of cover that you want to take out. People generally want enough insurance to cover the property’s estimated replacement value. If you don’t have enough cover, you could end up having to cover some of the costs yourself.

Remember, Allianz will only pay up to the amount of your loss or the sum insured, whichever is the lesser (subject to the policy terms and conditions) - so you should also be careful not to over insure. That's why we've provided these calculators. They work as guides to help you estimate the replacement value of your landlord buildings and contents.

FAQ's

What do I do if I need to make a landlord insurance claim?

Contact the Claims Call Centre on 1300 555 030 and advise the Claims Consultant of what has happened: the Claims Consultant will help you through the landlord insurance claims process.

In order to be sure that you are covered under this policy you should always contact us for approval before you incur expenses you wish to claim. If you do not, we will pay for expenses incurred to the amount we would have authorised had you asked us first.

Who is Landlord insurance policy designed for?

This insurance policy has been designed for people who are renting their property out to tenants under a residential rental agreement. 

Contents owned by you (or for which you are legally responsible) and provide for the use of the tenants may also be covered under the policy. 

This policy is not suitable for covering the building or contents of the home you live in. In this regard, we offer a home and contents product that has been specifically designed for homeowners or renters.

For more information on Home and Contents insurance, please visit the home and contents product page.

How should I determine the replacement value of my buildings?

The replacement value of your buildings is not the same as the market value – you do not need to include the value of the land when calculating the buildings replacement value.
