At EBM RentCover, we don’t just sell landlord insurance policies and leave it at that. We work to further educate our clients about reducing the risks associated with owning an investment property. That is why we created our Info Centre...

EBM RentCover’s Info Centre is an important resource for landlords and property professionals looking for extra guidance around managing rentals. It is updated regularly with articles that look at just how insurance steps in when things go wrong (because managing an investment property is not always smooth sailing!).

If this is your first time checking out the Info Centre, here are a handful of our top read articles to give you an idea of what to expect when you visit our site…

COVID-19 and the impact on landlord insurance

This is a fairly new article on our website, however it has already forged ahead as one of our top read articles. It answers common questions asked about COVID-19 and looks at how to submit claims during the global pandemic. Click here for a full list of FAQs.

The great debate: Is it fair wear and tear or damage?

This article looks at the differences between ‘wear and tear’ and ‘damage’. It is not surprising this is a popular article as the differences in damage cause a conundrum for many landlords, agents and tenants. Here, we break it down for you.

Landlord insurance FAQs: protection for investors

Of course this one is a top read! It answers all the common questions asked by landlords about insurance for investment properties including:

What to do if a tenant passes away

It is not something an agent or landlord wants to think about, but the death of a tenant is something many do face. Do you know what to do if a tenant dies? The right response could save landlords and property managers from confusion, stress and even legal problems. Find out more here.

Could you be managing a drug lab?

The harsh reality is… people looking to set up drug labs often target rentals. Within the privacy of their rented four walls, some tenants are secretly growing and manufacturing illicit drugs including cannabis, methamphetamine, ecstasy and GHB. So, what should you look out for? Find out here.


At EBM RentCover, we want to make sure our landlord and property manager clients are educated with the knowledge needed to make informed decisions about insurance for investment properties. We achieve this through our online Info Centre and by being there when you may need help – 1800 661 662.
