Insurance can give you the peace of mind and confidence that your property will be looked after should something go wrong. Loan Market Landlord Insurance covers the property and/or the contents you provide for your tenant’s use.
To help you decide the cover you need, here’s a brief outline of the difference between Buildings and Contents cover.
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.

Designed to cover items at your property – from furniture, removable domestic appliances and white goods which belong to you as the landlord and that you have provided for the use of your tenant. It also covers your carpets and window furnishings.

Buildings insurance is designed to protect the physical structures and fixtures that make up your buildings: from the house itself, to the garage, fences and paved driveways – even built-in appliances like showers and baths, hot water systems, air-conditioners and more.
Contents insurance protects the belongings you have at the insured address that you have provided for the use of your tenant: from your furniture, carpet and appliances and even your BBQ.
So, if any of the insured events happen during the period of insurance, we’ll generally pay to repair or replace your contents – up to the policy limits.
Here is a limited summary of the benefits of a landlord insurance policy. For full details of the terms, conditions, limits and exclusions that apply please read the Landlord Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) any applicable supplementary PDS and Landlord Buildings or Landlord Contents key fact sheets also available for reference.

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, we 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.
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.
Flood cover is an option on both Building and Contents in Home and Landlords policies. Please call us on 1300 555 030 to find out whether you are eligible for Flood cover. For full details of terms, conditions, limits and exclusions of all our landlord insurance cover options, please refer to the relevant Landlord Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) any applicable supplementary PDS and Landlord Buildings or Landlord Contents key fact sheets also available for reference.
You can apply to add these options to your policy when you start or renew it (or during your period of insurance by contacting Loan Market Insurance on 1800 142 020). If you’re not sure whether you have added these cover options, you can check your policy schedule.

1. Online discount
A premium discount of up to 10% is applied to your first years premium when you buy a new Landlord insurance policy online including to optional covers if selected; Rent default and Flood. This discount is not applied on renewal.
When you take out a new policy, we calculate your No Claims Bonus based on your home or landlords (as applicable) insurance claims history. To qualify for the maximum No Claim Bonus of 30%, home insurance customers must have had no Building or Contents insurance claims in the preceding five years. Landlord customers must have had no Landlord insurance claims in the preceding 3 years. However, customers who have had claims may still qualify for a reduced No Claim Bonus.
4. Minimum premiums
If you are eligible for more than one discount, Allianz applies them in a predetermined order. This means any subsequent discount will be applied to the reduced premium amount after applying any prior discounts and the effect of the subsequent discount will be reduced. For example, the aggregate effect of applying two 10% discounts consecutively means that you will not see the full benefit of both these discounts.
Discounts do not apply to taxes or government charges.
Discounts do not apply to optional covers for Domestic Workers Compensation / Landlord Workers Compensation, and may not apply to other optional covers (if available and selected).
Any discounts/entitlements may be subject to rounding and may only apply to the extent that any minimum premium is not reached.
5. Excess reduction
Not available when an additional compulsory excess or imposed excess applies. Minimum Premiums apply.
6. Instalment premiums
If you choose to pay your premium by instalments you do not pay us any more than if you pay your premium in one lump sum annually. The premiums payable by instalments may be subject to minor adjustments (upwards or downwards) due to rounding. Note: Your financial institution may apply transaction fees to instalment payments.
