Now that the year is coming to a close, so too is EBM RentCover (for a short while, of course!). This is what you need to know…
It has been a big and eventful year! In order to reset, most team members will take a well-deserved break from 24 December. During this time, there will be a delay to non-urgent requests, until most of the team returns on 11 January. NOTE: We will have a small number of team members able to respond to urgent matters.
In preparation for the holiday season, we have compiled a few tips and tricks for managing rentals (including ideas for minimising rental losses and protecting the property from damage). You can find that information here.
We know there may be circumstances where you need to talk to the EBM RentCover team. This is what you should do if you need to contact us between 24 December and 11 January…
If you need to make a claim, you can still do this through our online claims portal. Non-urgent claims will be attended to when most of the team returns to work on 11 January.
Applying for cover:
You can still apply for cover using the appropriate application form, however all applications will be processed upon the return of the team. Please note, cover will be in place from the date noted on the application form (if the application form has been filled in correctly and meets all necessary requirements).
IMPORTANT: If you are a Corporate Authorised Representative or Distributor of EBM RentCover, you can still apply for cover using RCPLive. If you do not have access to RCPLive, you can register for access here (you will need to register before 14 December 2020 to be trained appropriately to use the system before the break).
This is business as usual. You can get on top of your payment and pay your premium here.
Certificate of currency:
If you are on the hunt for a Certificate of Currency (confirming your insurance policy is current), please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We can arrange this for you during this period.
General enquiries and emergencies:
General enquires will be filtered through a messaging service thanks to our friendly partners at Vodafone. EBM RentCover will have a small number of team members able to respond to urgent matters.
What constitutes an emergency? An emergency is an event that poses an immediate risk to the property or the tenant. It is something that, without immediate intervention, will worsen. For example, a house fire or severe flood.
To determine if your enquiry is an emergency, does your situation meet the below criteria:
- Is there immediate risk to the tenant and/or property?
- If you do not seek assistance now, will the situation worsen?
If you answered yes to the above, please contact our after-hours emergency response line on 423 LMI CLAIMS (0423 564 252).
We know that this period is prone to natural disasters. Please note, the EBM RentCover team is on standby and ready to work if a natural disaster strikes.
For all other enquiries, please contact 1800 661 662 and leave your details with our messaging service. If the matter is not urgent, you will likely hear from us after January 11. Thanks for your support during this time. Happy holidays!
