How long will the rent be covered in the event of a claim?
The rent will be covered until the tenant is evicted. Once vacant possession has been obtained following eviction, 75% of the rent will be payable for up to 2 months or until the property is reoccupied, whichever occurs sooner.
What is the cooling off period for this cover?
There's a 14 day cooling off period from the start of the policy. In the event of cancellation after the cooling off period, a full pro-rata refund will be given if no claim has been made.
Can I transfer my policy from one rental property to another?
No. If you require cover for more than one property you will need to purchase cover for each property you want to cover.
Can I increase or reduce the cover period?
No. If you have purchased 12 months of cover, the policy will continue to renew every year on that basis. If you then need to change it to a 6 month policy term, you'll need to purchase a new policy on that basis.
