A residential investment property needs to be appropriately protected. Insurance can give you the peace of mind and confidence that your property will be looked after should something go wrong. National Seniors Insurance Landlord Insurance covers the property and/or the contents you provide for your tenant’s use.
To help you decide the cover you need, Here’s a brief outline of the difference between Buildings and Contents cover
Designed to cover the physical structures that make up your property, like the house itself, garage, sheds, permanently installed swimming pools and decks. Generally for customers who own a freehold home – like a house, townhouse, terrace or semi-detached dwelling.
Designed to cover items at your property – from furniture, removable domestic appliances and white goods which belong to you as the landlord and that you have provided for the use of your tenant. It also covers your carpets and window furnishings.
The better you understand your policy, the easier it will be if you ever have to claim.
Here is a limited summary of the benefits of a landlord insurance policy. For full details of the terms, conditions, limits and exclusions that apply please read the Product Disclosure Statement (PDS), any applicable supplementary PDS and Landlord Buildings and Landlord Contents Key Fact Sheets (KFS) before making a decision to purchase the insurance.
Select the cover to suit your needs.
Effective 16 December 2019
Buildings - What's covered?
Buildings insurance is designed to protect the physical structures and fixtures that make up your buildings: from the house itself, to the garage, fences and paved driveways – even built-in appliances like showers and baths, hot water systems, air-conditioners and more.
Contents - What's covered?
Contents insurance protects the belongings you have at the insured address that you have provided for the use of your tenant: from your furniture, carpet and appliances and even your BBQ. So, if any of the insured events happen during the period of insurance, we’ll generally pay to repair or replace your contents – up to the policy limits.
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, we will only pay up to the amount of your loss or the sum insured, whichever is the lesser - 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 building and contents.
We do not provide advice based on any consideration of your objectives, financial situation or needs. Terms, conditions, limits and exclusions apply.

When you take out a new policy, we calculate your No Claims Bonus based on your home or landlords (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 five years. 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.
4. 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.
5. Excess reduction
Not available when an additional compulsory excess or imposed excess applies. Minimum Premiums apply.
6. 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.
