What insurance do I need?
It is up to a landlord to insure their rental property against any damage, either through accident or otherwise. That insurance will usually be for the benefit of the landlord only. A tenant should arrange insurance to protect their contents and liability for damage to the landlordís property.Advice for landlords
- Make sure your insurance covers the premises and that the cover is for a rental property. The Residential Tenancies Act 1986 (RTA) requires you to pay the insurance premiums charged for that insurance.
- Check exactly what it is covered by your policy. Some insurers offer special landlord insurance cover that includes issues to do with the tenancy (e.g. vacancy periods, damage by the tenant, etc)
*Bay City Rentals Tga Limited is an approved agent for "REALĒ Landlord Insurance.
- Talk to your insurance company about their requirements for making claims. Some insurers require landlords to prove they have conducted a thorough tenancy selection process before honouring damage claims.
- You may also choose to insure any chattels in the property that you own and that are listed in the tenancy agreement. Any damage to them will not be covered by the tenantís contents insurance.
