Buying an investment property comes with plenty of responsibility and risk, so it’s vital you protect it with the best landlord insurance QLD cover available on the market.

If you’re unfamiliar with what is entailed within landlord insurance policies, let our insurance brokerage company fill you in and clear up any confusion. Landlord insurance is just like standard home and contents insurance, however it also provides additional insurance cover for risks associated with an investment property.

This additional protection is provided when you also include Loss of Rent, Rent Default, Malicious Damage, and Theft by Tenants under your QLD landlord insurance policy.

Be wary about covering your investment property with a domestic or home and contents cover as some of those policies have an exclusion for damage caused by parties who are legally on the property, which can include the tenants and their guests.

The Best Landlord Insurance Policies in QLD Include…

  • Loss of Rent Coverage covers loss of rental income in the event your investment property becomes uninhabitable due to an insured event such as fire or storm damage.
  • Rent Default Coverage covers events such as missed rental payments, loss of income due to the property being vacant, and legal costs involved with pursuing a tenant for unpaid rent.
  • Malicious Damage Coverage covers malicious damage caused by burglars, vandals and tenants. Under a standard domestic cover this usually excludes damage caused by tenants or other people who are lawfully on your premises.
  • Theft by Tenants Coverage usually covers damage or loss to the property owner caused by theft or attempted theft by the tenants or guests.

Common Questions Clients Ask our Sunshine Coast, Cooroy and Bundaberg Insurance Brokers

Q. What are “landlords contents”? Why do I need this cover when I don’t have any furniture in the house?
A. Because it provides cover for certain items which fall outside of the definition of “building” such as the property’s fixtures and fittings (carpets, curtains and blinds). Some insurers include an automatic allowance if you insure your building for this, otherwise our insurance brokerage firm recommends a minimal sum be put in the contents section to allow for this.

Q. What’s the difference between “rent default” and “loss of rent”?
A. “Rent default” covers you for the income lost due to circumstances relating to a tenant dishonoring the terms of their lease requirements. “Loss of rent” covers you for the income lost in relation to the property being inhabitable due to such events as fire or flood, or in the event the property has other serious damage.
