Bankwest FAQs

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.

Bankwest’s landlord insurance policies offer cover for a range of insured events (think fires, storms and theft) and loss of rent due to tenant default. You can see a snapshot of Bankwest’s landlord insurance options in the table below.
