Don’t need cover for tenant-related damage and loss?

HouseholdersRental is an alternative to EBM RentCover’s traditional offerings and is designed for landlords who do not need cover for tenant-related damage and loss. It provides cover for insured events (such as fire, storm and flood) to contents and optional building, but does not cover accidental or tenant-related damage. 

What’s covered?

Legal liability

Up to $30 million cover

Tax audit

Up to $1,000 cover

Water damage

Up to $65,000 cover (contents) | Up to sum insured (building)

Fire damage

Up to $65,000 cover (contents) | Up to sum insured (building)

Storm damage

Up to $65,000 cover (contents) | Up to sum insured (building)

HouseholdersRental Premiums 

Premiums are calculated based on the amount you want to insure the property for, location, construction and age of the property. For a HouseholdersRental insurance quote (contents only and/or a combined contents and building quote), contact the EBM RentCover team or get a quote online.
