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

This insurance policy has been designed for people who are renting their property out to tenants under a residential rental agreement.

Contents owned by you (or for which you are legally responsible) and provide for the use of the tenants may also be covered under the policy.

This policy is not suitable for covering the building or contents of the home you live in. In this regard, Allianz offers a Home and Contents product that has been specifically designed for homeowners or renters.

1. Online discount - When you buy a new Landlord insurance policy online a premium discount of up to 10% is applied to your first years premium including the optional covers (If selected) Flood & Rent Default and Theft by Tenant. This discount is not applied on renewal.

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.

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.
