Landlord Insurance options

We understand that you need your residential investment property to be appropriately covered in the event of an incident. 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.

Landlord Buildings

Designed to cover the physical structures that make up your property, like the house itself, garage, sheds, permanently installed swimming pools and decks.

Landlord Contents

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.

Understand your policy

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 standard terms, conditions, limits and exclusions that apply please read the Product Disclosure Statement (PDS), any applicable supplementary PDS before making a decision to purchase insurance. The Landlord Buildings and Landlord Contents Key Fact Sheets (KFS) also sets out some information about the cover.

What does Landlord Insurance cover?

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 - 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.

Landlord Insurance calculator


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 (subject to the policy terms and conditions) - so you should also be careful selecting the level of insurance that is right for you, to avoid being over-insured. 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.
