Frequently asked

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

Do what you reasonably can to prevent further loss, damage or liability. Tell the police as soon as reasonably possible about any malicious damage, theft, attempted theft, burglary or loss of insured property. Contact the Claims Call Centre on 13 10 13 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.

Am I covered for Flood?

Flood cover is an option on both Building and Contents in Home and Landlords policies. Please call Bank Australia on 132 888 to find out whether you are eligible for Flood cover. For full details of terms, conditions, limits and exclusions of all our home insurance cover options, please refer to the relevant Product Disclosure Statement any supplementary PDS and Landlord Buildings or Landlord Contents Key Fact Sheets.

How do I know if I have optional covers on my policy? 

You can apply to add these options to your policy when you start or renew it (or during your period of insurance) by contacting Bank Australia on 132 888. If you’re not sure whether you have added these cover options, you can check your policy schedule.

Who is the 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 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 building’s replacement value.

1. Online discount

When you buy a new Landlord insurance policy online a premium discount of up to 10% is applied to your first years premium including the optional cover Flood. This discount is not applied on renewal.

2. Minimum premiums

If you are eligible for more than one discount, Allianz applies them in a predetermined order. This means any subsequent discount will be applied to the reduced premium amount after applying any prior discounts and the effect of the subsequent discount will be reduced. For example, the aggregate effect of applying two 10% discounts consecutively means that you will not see the full benefit of both these discounts.

Discounts do not apply to taxes or government charges.

Discounts do not apply to optional covers for Domestic Workers Compensation / Landlord Workers Compensation, and may not apply to other optional covers (if available and selected).

Any discounts/entitlements may be subject to rounding and may only apply to the extent that any minimum premium is not reached.

3. Instalment premiums

If you choose to pay your premium by instalments you do not pay us any more than if you pay your premium in one lump sum annually. The premiums payable by instalments may be subject to minor adjustments (upwards or downwards) due to rounding. Note: Your financial institution may apply transaction fees to instalment payments.

4. No Claims Bonus

When you take out a new policy, we calculate your No Claims Bonus (NCB) based on your home or landlord (as applicable) insurance claims history. To qualify for the maximum No Claim Bonus of 30%, home insurance customers must have had no Building or Contents insurance claims in the preceding 5years. Landlord customers must have had no Landlord insurance claims in the preceding 3 years. However, customers who have had claims may still qualify for a reduced No Claim Bonus.
