What does Building and Contents Insurance cover?

Buildings > What’s covered?

Buildings insurance is designed to protect the physical structures and fixtures that make up your home buildings: from the house itself, to your garage, fences and paved driveways – even built-in appliances like hot water systems, air-conditioners and more.

Contents > What’s covered?

Contents insurance protects the belongings you have at the insured address: from your furniture, carpet and appliances to your BBQ and even your clothes, shoes and handbags.

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.

The better you understand your policy, the easier it will be if you ever have to claim.

Here is a limited summary of the benefits of a building and contents insurance policy. For full details of the standard terms, conditions, limits and exclusions that apply please read the Home Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) any applicable supplementary PDS before making a decision to purchase the insurance. The Home Buildings and Home Contents key fact sheets also set out some information about the cover.

Select the cover to suit your needs.

Home 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, we will only pay up to the amount of your loss or the sum insured, whichever is the lesser (subject to the policy terms and conditions) - 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 home building and contents.

Frequently asked questions

What do I do if I need to make a buildings and/or contents insurance claim?

Do what you reasonably can to prevent any further loss, damage or liability. Tell the police as soon as reasonably possible about any malicious damage, theft, attempted theft, burglary or loss of insured property. Contact the Claims Call Centre on 1300 958 786 and advise the Claims Consultant of what has happened: the Claims Consultant will help you through the buildings insurance claims process.

In order to be sure that you are covered under this policy you should always contact us for approval before you incur expenses you wish to claim. If you do not, we will pay for expenses incurred to the amount we would have authorised had you asked us first.

Am I covered for Flood?

For full details of terms, conditions, limits and exclusions of all our home insurance cover options, please refer to the relevant Home Product Disclosure Statement (PDS), any applicable supplementary PDS, and the Home Buildings or Home Contents key fact sheets also available for reference.

I have changed the security on my property - do I need to let you know?

If you are altering the security on your property you should inform us as it may change the conditions of your home insurance. This may affect your premium.

You must tell Allianz immediately if, during the period of insurance you remove or stop using any security devices that were specifically required by us.

  • cancel your policy if there is a change and we can’t reach an agreement with you on altered terms and conditions or premium; or we are no longer prepared to insure you because there has been a material change to the risk

I'm about to install a new kitchen and renovate my bathroom - should I notify my insurer?

You should tell Allianz as soon as reasonably possible if during the period of insurance your building is in the course of construction or there are any alterations, additions, demolition, repairs to, or decorations of the buildings costing more than $75,000. If you don’t provide this information as soon as reasonably possible, Allianz may refuse or reduce a claim under the policy to the extent we are prejudiced by the delay or the non-disclosure.

When Allianz receive this information, they may:

  • propose changes to the terms and conditions of your policy
  • charge you a higher premium
  • cancel your policy if there is a change and we can’t reach an agreement with you on altered terms and conditions or premium; or we are no longer prepared to insure you because there has been a material change to the risk

It is also important that you increase your sum insured to take into account any extensions or renovations to make sure you are adequately covered in the event of a home insurance claim.

I have commenced using my home for business purposes - should I notify my insurer?

You must tell Allianz immediately if, during the period of insurance you start using any part of your home building for business, trade or professional purposes (except for a home office).

What do I do if I rent my home out to tenants?

If you’re renting your home out to tenants, cover is not available under Allianz Building and Contents Insurance through Loan Market Insurance unless you also live at the insured address. Allianz offer a product that has been specifically designed for landlords that you can consider instead.

How much will I be covered for?

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.

What if I need help choosing the right amount of cover?

To help you estimate the replacement value of your buildings and/or contents, you can use our Home Buildings and/or Home Contents replacement calculators.

I run a business from home, can I get cover?

You must tell us immediately if, during the period of insurance you start using any part of your home building for business, trade or professional purposes (except for a home office).

When Allianz receive this information, they may:

  • propose changes to the terms and conditions of your policy
  • charge you a higher premium
  • cancel your policy
  • decide not to offer to renew your policy

Which option do I need to cover my laptop, tablet, mobile phone or smart watch away from home?

You can cover laptops, tablets, mobile phones, smart watches and other wearable technology away from the home under the Portable Contents optional cover. These items must be specified on your policy as Listed Portable Contents to be covered under this option. Allianz will not cover cracked glass or screens where this is the only damage to the item.

Can I cover my bike and other sporting equipment away from home?

Yes you can cover these under the Portable Contents optional cover as Unlisted Portable Contents. However, these items will not be covered while they are being used.

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 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

2. Combined
A discount of up to 10% for combining Buildings and Contents covers on one policy is applied to your premium for Building and Contents, Motor Burnout and Accidental damage cover where applicable. The combined policy discount does not apply to the optional Flood or Portable Contents covers.

3. No Claim Bonus
When you take out a new policy, we calculate your No Claim 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.

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.
