FAQs

Rental property insurance, or landlord insurance, is designed to provide property owners with financial protection against losses related to their rental properties. This type of insurance typically covers damage to the property from fire, storm or other risks, as well as loss of rental income due to tenant default or property unavailability. It also often includes liability coverage, which protects the landlord in case of injuries or accidents on the property.
Rental property insurance typically covers damage to the building caused by fire, severe weather and other risks, such as vandalism. It often includes liability protection in case someone is injured on the property, safeguarding the landlord against potential lawsuits. Insurance for rental properties can also cover loss of rental income, ensuring landlords maintain their cash flow if the property becomes temporarily uninhabitable due to covered damages or tenant issues.

As a specialist underwriter, SGUA offers a wide range of cover options to suit the needs and coverage preferences of a range of investors, from standard landlord protection to comprehensive holiday property protection.
When obtaining a property insurance quote, insurers consider several factors, including the property's location, which can affect risk exposure to natural disasters or crime. The type and age of the building also influence premiums, as older properties may pose higher risks. Additionally, the level of coverage desired, such as for building, contents and liability and the rental income generated, also come into play.
SGUA offers a range of property insurance coverage options, including specific policies for landlords. These policies protect residential investment properties under long-term tenancies or holiday properties used for short-term stays or as secondary residences. Coverage typically includes building and contents protection, legal liability up to $20 million and loss of rent due to various defined events.

For landlords, SGUA provides policies that can be customised or chosen from fixed home and contents packages to suit different needs. These policies cover accidental physical loss or damage to contents, theft, legal expenses and tenant-related damages like deliberate destruction or damage caused by pets. They also cover the clean-up and repair costs associated with the production of controlled drugs.
The coverage amount for your property insurance should ideally match the full replacement cost of your property. This ensures that in the event of total loss, you can rebuild your home or property without incurring additional financial burdens. Include the cost of materials and current construction prices in your area to determine this amount accurately.
Some common exclusions in property insurance policies typically include natural disasters such as floods and earthquakes, intentional damage caused by the property owner, normal wear and tear and damage from vermin or insects.
Replacement cost coverage reimburses you for the cost to replace damaged or destroyed property with new materials, without factoring in depreciation. Actual cash value (ACV) coverage pays out based on the depreciated value of the property at the time of the damage or loss, which may be less than the cost to replace it. This typically makes replacement cost coverage more comprehensive than ACV.
Yes, it's advisable to get additional insurance for high-value items. Standard property insurance policies typically have lower limits for these items, so adding extra insurance ensures full coverage for their actual value, protecting against theft or damage.

I would like to say a huge thank all around to the team at SGUA. Since May this year we have had quite a few properties fences that have come down with storms and myself and my property management team have had dealings with your claims department and I must say in all my years of property management SGUA are right up at the top for fast, efficient and wonderful service.

Simply the best. I have worked with a lot of insurance companies over the past 15+ years in property management but none compare with SGUA and TICA. They have a very experienced team that are easy to deal with during a claim and always make themselves available to discuss scenarios and to give advice. I can't recommend them enough.
