Flood is covered dependent always on the address of the risk. Not all House & Contents Insurance products are the same so let’s talk and find a product to suit your particular insurance needs.
Choice of Excess:
On all the insurance policies the excess payable on claim is adjustable... the higher the excess, the lower the premium without affecting the policy benefits and cover. Discuss the excess you would prefer with us. Thomas Brokers can quote a range of excess options for your risk.... just ask us!
Sum Insured Value:
You need to give some very careful thought to the values you select for your Home Building or your Contents Insurance.
“New for Old”
The insurance policies we recommend are “New for Old” so the Sum Insured value should represent today’s costs for replacement of both your House and Contents.
There is no penalty for Under Insuring your property, just remember you become your own insurer for the uninsured balance of the total replacement cost once we have settled your claim. This means you will be paying you proportion of the claim. When you take out your home insurance you need to make sure you first calculate the full replacement value of your house and its contents. Then choose the home and contents insurance that best suits your current insurance needs.
Strata and Landlord Insurance:
If your home is part of a Body Corporate Strata Property or is rented out as a Landlord Property private owner insurance above is not suitable.
We can assist you in those areas too with specialised Strata Insurance and Landlord Insurance products (see relevant pages on this website).
