Building or home insurance covers any part of your house that is permanently fixed and not intended to move, such as your walls and roof, and even the light on your front porch.
Contents insurance covers all the items within your house that are not permanent fixtures, i.e. you could move them between houses. Find out more about home and contents insurance here.
As a renter, you don’t need home insurance because your landlord should have insurance for the building you live in, and if you live in a unit/apartment or townhouse, the body corporate is legally required to have building insurance for the building.
But you should certainly get contents insurance to protect your own possessions. Many providers offer specialised renters’ insurance policies.
For landlords, a better option than home insurance is landlord insurance. Landlord insurance covers you for the same things as a home insurance policy, but with several important additions to cover you against risks from your tenants.
As mentioned above, 1300 Insurance offers landlord insurance as an optional extra under your home insurance policy. Depending on your choice of cover, 1300 Insurance’s home insurance may cover repairs for damage caused by your tenants, or your legal fees if you need to sue tenants who are not paying rent.
