If we agree the cost to repair or replace your home is greater than your home sum insured, we will pay up to 30% more than your sum insured to either: repair your home; replace your home to the same condition; or pay the reasonable cost of its repair or replacement to a condition substantially the same as when new.
Depending on whether you purchase protection for your home, contents or both, a range of additional benefits may apply:
Rent Default (option)
Unfortunately, our experience tells us that many landlords experience tenants defaulting on rent or causing severe property damage beyond what would be covered by a security deposit (bond money).
