Building Your home is likely your largest and most emotional financial investment. Yet, it is also a vulnerable one, subject to natural disasters, burglary and vandalism among others. With our Building Cover, you’ll know that your house is covered against events such as Fire, Lightning, Cyclone, Flood, Burglary, Malicious Damage and more.
You’ve spent time and money to get the things you’ve got today. Replacing your belongings if something happened would put you out of pocket. Give yourself less to worry about by protecting your furniture, carpets, household appliances, clothes and anything that is precious to you inside your home.
When you buy Contents Insurance you’ll have cover for events such as Fire, Explosion, Lightning, Cyclone, Flood, Burglary, Malicious Damage and more.
Add Personal Effects coverage to your Contents Cover to protect your valuables away from home. We all know it’s too easy to lose or damage something you’re wearing or carrying while out and about. This reassuring cover includes belongings like jewellery, watches, cameras, mobile phones, laptop and sports equipment
These days just about anyone can be sued as a result of their actions. The personal liability coverage within your home insurance provides coverage for bodily injury and property damage sustained by others for which you or your family members are legally responsible. For example, someone falls down your stairs, or your child accidentally throws a ball through a neighbor’s window, breaking an expensive item – you may be held responsible for the damages caused. Under personal liability coverage, the insurance company defends you if you are sued, and pays damages to the injured person up to the limit of liability.
Domestic Workers Compensation
Domestic Workers Compensation gives you cover for people you employ to work at your residence in the event they are injured and you are legally liable.
Not everyone masters the art of home maintenance. That is why an electrical breakdown or a water leak can be a mere incident for some and a disaster for others. That is the thinking behind the Emergency Home Assistance.
Our Home Assistance has the competence to meet these needs and make your life easier.
You’ve lost your key, or it got broken in the lock: a provider from our network will respond round the clock, 365 days of the year, to replace the lock and reassure you.
If a window is broken or if your home is no longer protected, we will send a competent technical person suited to secure the place as quickly as possible.
For a water leak or an electrical failure, we are able to supply qualified and approved tradesmen to repair any damage quickly and effectively.
Our Emergency Home Assistance service is geared to provide quick temporary measures to stop or prevent further damage until adequate repairs are carried out.
