Allianz Landlord Insurance through Credit Union SA covers the property and/or the contents you provide for your tenant’s use.

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. Generally for customers who own a freehold home – like a house, townhouse, terrace or semi-detached dwelling.

Landlord Insurance Calculators

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, Allianz will only pay up to the amount of your loss or the sum insured, whichever is the lesser - so you should also be careful not to over insure. 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.

FAQs

  • Who is Landlord insurance policy designed for?

    This insurance policy has been designed for people who are renting their property out to tenants under a residential rental agreement.

    Contents owned by you (or for which you are legally responsible) and provide for the use of the tenants may also be covered under the policy.

    This policy is not suitable for covering the building or contents of the home you live in. In this regard, we offer a Home and Contents product that has been specifically designed for homeowners or renters.

    For more information on Home and Contents insurance, please visit the product page.

  • Am I covered for Flood?

    Flood cover is an option on both Building and Contents in Home and Landlords policies. Please call us on (08) 8202 7777 to find out whether you are eligible for Flood cover. For full details of terms, conditions, limits and exclusions of all our home insurance cover options, please refer to the Landlord Product Disclosure Statement (PDS), any applicable supplementary PDS and Landlord Buildings and Landlord Contents Key Fact Sheet/s (KFS).

  • How do I know if I have optional covers on my policy?

    You can apply to add these options to your policy when you start or renew it (or during your period of insurance by contacting Credit Union SA on (08) 8202 7777). If you’re not sure whether you have added these cover options, you can check your policy schedule.

  • What do I do if I need to make a landlord insurance claim?

    Take all reasonable precautions to prevent further loss, damage or liability. Contact the police immediately to report any malicious damage, theft, attempted theft, burglary or loss of insured property. Contact the Claims Call Centre on 1300 555 030 and advise the Claims Consultant of what has happened: the Claims Consultant will help you through the Landlord insurance claims process.

  • How should I determine the replacement value of my buildings?

    The replacement value of your buildings is not the same as the market value – you do not need to include the value of the land when calculating the buildings replacement value.
