Allianz Home Insurance FAQs

As a general rule, building insurance covers any part of your house that is permanently fixed and not intended to move, such as your walls and roof, or kitchen benchtops. 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.

If you have a recent and accurate estimate for the value of your home and contents, then it’s often a good idea to insure up to that particular sum to get your exact money’s worth.

If you don’t have an accurate idea of this value, then you could look for a complete replacement home insurance policy to give yourself peace of mind, though bear in mind that while you’re less likely to be underinsured, the premiums for a total replacement may be more expensive than for a sum-insured one. Find out how much home insurance you need and how much contents insurance you need.

If something happens to your home or contents, you can either lodge a claim online or call Allianz at any time of the day on 13 10 13 to commence the claims process over the phone.

As a renter, you generally 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. However, as a renter you can still consider contents insurance if you want to protect your own possessions.

Some providers offer specialised renters insurance policies. In many cases, though, renters insurance is the same or very similar to a contents insurance policy. It may be the case that when applying for a standard contents insurance policy, you simply need to specify to the insurer that you’re a tenant.

If you are a renter, you can purchase a contents-only policy from Allianz.

For landlords, a specific landlord insurance policy could be an option to consider. Landlord insurance is designed to cover you for the same things as a home insurance policy, but with several additions to cover you against risks from having tenants in your property.

Depending on your choice of cover, Allianz landlord insurance may cover your investment property and/or contents. Allianz says its landlord insurance is designed to cover the cost of replacement or repair required when certain events occur that damage your residential investment property, and any contents you provide for your tenant’s use, that could leave you out of pocket financially.
