  • Contents including furniture and furnishings
  • Keys and locks

  • Any costs associated with the cleaning up or removal of asbestos
  • Vermin or insects

NAB’s landlord insurance policies may protect you from a loss of rental income due to a variety of factors, including:

  • Inhabitability after an insured event such as a fire, flood, storm, tsunami or riot (up to 52 weeks of rent cover)
  • If your tenant defaults on their payment (optional extra)

NAB will pay for loss of rent for either 12 months, or for the length of time which is agreed to be necessary in order to reinstate your buildings or for which access is denied – whichever period is shorter.

See the PDS for more information on possible exclusions.

See this article for a quick guide to what landlord insurance is and what it may cover you for.

A landlord insurance policy may provide you with cover should damage be caused to your rental property by tenants or their guests.

Under NAB’s building & contents landlord insurance policy, cover is included for the following:

  • Damage caused to any buildings, sheds, garages or fences within the property line
  • Damage caused by natural disasters such as fires, floods, and storms
  • Damage caused by riots or civil commotions
  • Damage caused by accidental glass breakage
  • Theft (not by tenant, theft by tenant available as an optional extra)
  • Malicious damage caused by either a tenant or their visitors

See the PDS for more information on possible exclusions.

Landlord insurance can also protect property owners against damage to the contents they own in their investment home.

While NAB’s building and contents landlord insurance policy is the most common option for landlords and has contents cover included, NAB also offers building cover and contents cover as separate policies. For more information about the different policies, look at the NAB website.

See the PDS for more information on possible exclusions.

In insurance terms, a ‘defined event’ (also known as a ‘listed event’) on a policy is a damage-causing event which you’re insured for under that policy.

Under NAB’s landlord insurance policy, you will generally be covered for the following defined events:

  • Storm
  • Flood
  • Explosion
  • Lightening or thunderbolt
  • A falling tree or branch
  • A riot or civil commotion
  • Earthquake
  • Fire
  • Malicious damage

To see the full list of defined events, see the PDS.

Flood damage can be treated as different to storm damage by certain insurers, and as a result you may not be automatically covered for it.

NAB’s building & contents landlord insurance does offer cover for flood damage, however please consult the PDS document for information about exclusions and conditions that may apply.

Landlord insurance policies may also offer additional benefits to suit your unique needs as a landlord for an extra fee.. Some of the additional benefits you may be able to add to your NAB landlord insurance policy include:

  • Rent default and theft by tenant
  • Death of a sole tenant
  • Departure of the tenant without notice
  • Legal expenses
  • Landlord Worker’s Compensation

For a full list of additional and optional extras available, consult the PDS.

Yes, NAB also offers home insurance as well as landlord insurance. At the time of writing, the NAB website does not have a multi-policy discount available; however, they offer up to a 30% No Claim Bonus discount for landlords who don’t make regular claims, 10% discount for buying your policy online and another 10% discount for combining buildings and contents cover on the one insurance policy.

See the difference between home and landlord insurance here.
