Home insurance covers you financially in the event something happens to the property you own. It can also cover your personal belongings inside your home.

It takes a lot of time and hard work to purchase a property, and many of us spend a large portion of our lives paying that property off. That’s why it’s so important to take out home insurance – especially for those living in areas prone to bushfires and floods4.

When you take out Home Insurance, it’s important that the amount you’re insured for accurately reflects the cost to rebuild your property and replace your contents.

If you’re insured for less than the replacement value of your home and contents, you might have to pay the difference out of your own pocket. Use our calculators as a guide to find out how much you should be insured for.

The cost of your insurance is called a ‘premium’. Your premium will depend on a number of factors, and can change each year when you renew your policy. Your premium for each period of insurance will be shown on your policy schedule.

There are a number of factors that determine how your Allianz Home and Contents Insurance premium is calculated, including:

  • Your risk profile. We work this out using a number of factors, such as:
    • Where you live
    • The type of property you’re insuring
    • The amount and type of cover you need
    • Any other people also insured under the policy
    • The relevant claims history of the people being insured
    • The likelihood of a claim being made on your policy
  • Any discounts that may apply.
  • Any compulsory government charges such as Stamp Duty and GST.
  • Fire Services Levy if they apply to the state or territory where your home is located.
  • Any other charges we tell you of.
  • The excess you choose (not available when an imposed excess applies)

If you were previously renting, the home building insurance was the responsibility of the landlord. As a property owner, you’re responsible for your own building insurance.

If you’ve just bought an apartment or townhouse, the building may be covered by Strata – check with your body corporate if this is the case. If so, you can still get your contents insured with us. If you’ve bought the house as an investment property, you’ll need Landlord Insurance.

With Allianz there are a number of ways you may save on your Home, Landlord and/or Contents Insurance premium:

  • If you’re buying Home Insurance, combine your Building and Contents Insurance on the one policy and save up to 10%1,3 (compared to purchasing each cover as a standalone cover). This discount doesn’t apply to Landlords Insurance.
  • Pay your premium annually rather than monthly to save on the 11% monthly service fee.
  • Increase your excess: our policies come with flexible excess levels, giving you the option to increase your excess, within a given range, which could reduce your premium3,5.

Yes, but before beginning renovations, you’ll need to notify us as soon as reasonably possible during the period of insurance if:

  • You’re an owner-occupier with a Home Insurance policy and your renovations will cost more than $75,000.
  • You’re a landlord with a Landlord Insurance policy and your renovations will cost more than $75,000.

If you don’t, we may refuse or reduce a claim under the policy to the extent we are prejudiced by the delay or the non-disclosure. When we get this information, we may:

  • Propose changes to the terms and conditions of your policy
  • Propose to charge you a higher premium
  • Cancel your policy (if there’s a change and we can’t reach an agreement with you on altered terms and conditions or premium; or we’re no longer prepared to insure you because there’s been a material change to the risk).
  • Decide not to offer to renew your policy

Note: It’s also important that you increase your sum insured to take into account any extensions or renovations to make sure you’re adequately covered in the event of a home and/or landlord insurance claim.

If your investment property is currently unoccupied, and it’s not a new property that will be permanently occupied within 60 days of settlement, we’ll not be able to offer you a new Home or Landlord Insurance policy online. You can call us on 13 1000 and we’ll ask you a few more questions to see what kind of insurance we can offer you.

If you already hold a Landlord Insurance policy for this property with us and the buildings haven’t or won’t not be lived in for more than 60 consecutive days, you’ll need to let us know as soon as reasonably possible by calling 13 1000.

If you rent out a part of your home while you live at the same address, you’ll need to tell us first before we agree to insure you. Depending on the circumstances, your tenant may need to take out their own contents insurance policy.

If you’re renting all of your home or a granny flat out to tenants, cover isn’t available under an Allianz Home Insurance policy. You may need to consider a Landlord policy. For more information, call us on 13 1000 so we can help determine your eligibility.

Our Home Insurance offers protection for your family home and contents. Landlord Insurance is designed for properties where rent is being collected and the policy holder isn't a resident of the property. For full details of the standard conditions and exclusions, refer to the relevant PDS and any supplementary PDS (where applicable).
The Motor Burnout option covers damage caused by an electrical current to a domestic household electrical motor. For full details of the standard terms, conditions and exclusions, refer to the relevant section in the PDS and any supplementary PDS (where applicable).

This option protects you in the event of accidental unexpected mishaps that are caused unintentionally, for example if you’re moving furniture around the house and damage your wall (if you have Buildings cover) or if you have spilt a drink which causes damage to your carpet (if you have Contents cover).

Here are some examples of the sort of mishaps you’ll be covered for if you take out optional Accidental Damage cover:

If you have Building cover and:

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

If you have Contents cover and:

  • You spill red wine on the new white carpet or lounge

We’ll extend cover for your contents anywhere in Australia for up to 90 continuous days in one period of insurance.

The Accidental Damage cover option automatically includes Motor Burnout cover. Read the PDS for the details of what is covered.

Unless we state otherwise in the PDS, you’ll need to pay an excess as a contribution toward your claim when you make a claim under the policy.

Charging an excess also helps to keep the cost of premiums down by reducing the number of small claims. The amount and type of excess you have to pay will be shown in your policy schedule or in your PDS.

For full details of the standard terms, conditions and exclusions, refer to your policy schedule or the relevant PDS and any supplementary PDS (where applicable).

If you’re altering the security on your property, you should inform us as soon as reasonably possible as it may change the conditions of your Home Insurance. Your premium may also be affected.
Yes, it’s important that you inform us of any changes in use of the premises as soon as reasonably possible as we may refuse or reduce a claim under the policy to the extent we’re prejudiced by the delay.

This cover option allows you to insure items which you wear or carry with you outside your home (such as a handbag, wallet, sunglasses, jewellery or a musical instrument). You can choose from two types of Portable Contents cover – unlisted or listed – or you can choose both.

Unlisted Portable Contents

This option allows you to select a per item limit and per claim limit, e.g. up to $2,000 per item and $7,500 per claim. This means you don't have to specifically list your portable item. However, this option doesn't cover items such as laptops, tablets, mobile phones and other wearable technology.

Listed Portable Contents

This option allows you to cover specifically listed portable items for their full replacement value (less any contributable excess). Laptops, tablets, mobile phones and other wearable technology can be listed under your policy and covered as listed portable items.

  1. Combined Discounts
    A discount of up to 10% is applied to your premium when you combine Buildings and Contents on one Home Insurance policy, including for the following optional covers if selected: Motor Burnout and Accidental Damage cover. The combined discount doesn't apply to Landlord policies, Flood or Portable Contents optional cover.
  2. Up to 30% No Claim Bonus - Home
    When you take out a new policy, we calculate your No Claim Bonus based on your home insurance claims history. To qualify for the maximum No Claim Bonus of 30%, Home Insurance customers must’ve had no Building or Contents insurance claims in the preceding five years. However, customers who have had claims may still qualify for a reduced No Claim Bonus.

    After each claim-free year, the No Claim Bonus applied to your renewal premium will be increased by 10%, to a maximum of 30%. However, for every claim you make in a year, the No Claim Bonus applied to your renewal premium will be reduced by 10% to a minimum of 0%.

    The No Claim Bonus is applied to some optional covers if selected; Motor Burnout and Accidental Damage, but not Flood or Portable Contents cover.

    Landlord: When you take out a new policy, we calculate your No Claim Bonus based on your landlord insurance claims history. To qualify for the maximum No Claim Bonus of 30%, Landlord Insurance customers must’ve had no landlord losses in the preceding three years. However, customers who have had claims may still qualify for a reduced No Claim Bonus.

    After each claim-free year, the No Claim Bonus discount applied to your renewal premium will be increased by 10%, to a maximum of 30%. However, for every claim you make in a year, the No Claim Bonus applied to your renewal premium will be reduced by 10% to a minimum of 0%. The No Claim Bonus discount doesn’t apply to optional cover Flood (if selected) but is applied to Rent Default and Theft by Tenant (if selected).
  3. Minimum premiums may apply
    Any discounts may be subject to rounding and only apply to the extent that any minimum premium isn't reached. If you’re eligible for more than one discount, Allianz applies them in a predetermined order. This means the effect of applying any subsequent discount will be reduced. For example, the aggregate effect of applying two discounts consecutively means that you won't see the full benefit of both these discounts.

    Discounts don't apply to taxes or government charges. No discounts are applied to the optional cover: Domestic Workers Compensation (if available and selected).
  4. 72-hour exclusion period
    We don’t provide cover for any loss of or damage to your property caused by cyclone, flood, grassfires and bushfires, during the first 72 hours after you first purchase a policy or increase your cover under an existing policy.
  5. Option to change your excess
    Not available when an imposed excess applies.
