What does Building Insurance cover?

What does Building Insurance cover?

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.

If you purchased home or landlord insurance before 18 November 2019, please refer to the relevant Buildings Product Disclosure Statement, any applicable supplementary PDS and Buildings or Contents Key Fact Sheet/s.

Policy Documents and Key Fact Sheets

We do not provide advice based on any consideration of your objectives, financial situation or needs. Terms, conditions, limits and exclusions apply.

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, 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 the calculator. It works as a guide to help you estimate the replacement value of your home building.

Frequently asked questions

What do I do if I need to make a buildings 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 13 10 13 and advise the Claims Consultant of what has happened: the Claims Consultant will help you through the buildings insurance claims process.

Am I covered for Flood?

Flood cover is an option on both Building and Contents in Home and Landlords policies. Please call us on 1300 004 863 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 relevant Product Disclosure Statement, any supplementary PDS and Home Buildings Key Fact Sheets.

What does it mean if I take the Accidental Damage cover option?

This optional cover provides even more protection – it covers you in the event of damage caused by accidental unexpected mishaps that are caused unintentionally not just the specified insured events.

If you have Buildings cover only and select this option, examples of the sort of mishaps you’ll be covered for include when:

  • You accidentally smash a hole in the wall when you move some furniture.
  • Your kids draw all over your walls.

I would like cover for my portable contents with my Buildings cover, what are my options?

The option to include portable contents cover under your policy may only be applied for if you have Contents cover or both Buildings and Contents cover.

Your policy schedule will show which of the optional covers apply.

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 Hume Bank on 1300 004 863. If you’re not sure whether you have added these cover options, you can check your policy schedule.

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.

What is considered ‘unable to be lived in’?

Allianz will consider your home is unable to be lived in when it is so damaged that normal domestic activities like cooking, sanitation and personal hygiene cannot take place, and Allianz agree that you cannot live in the home.

1) Online discount - A premium discount of up to 10% is applied to your first years premium when you buy a new home insurance policy online including the following optional covers (if applicable); Accidental damage, Flood, Motor Burnout and Portable Contents. This discount is not applied on renewal
 
2) NCB - 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.
 
3) 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.
 
4) Excess reduction - Not available when an additional compulsory excess or imposed excess applies. Minimum Premiums apply.
 
5) 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.
