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.
