Even the best tenants can have difficulties or accidents that can result in property damage and lost rent. RentCoverUltra covers you against theft and damage (accidental or malicious) by your tenants or their guests up to $65,000. It also covers rental income loss due to unpaid rent (depending on the circumstances) or vacancy while insured damage is repaired.
Ideal for permanently let units or townhouses, RentCoverUltra includes cover against ‘defined events’ such as fire, storm, flood and water damage as well as liability up to $30,000,000, so you won’t need a separate contents policy.
If you are insuring a house, you may like to consider RentCoverPlatinum which includes a comprehensive building policy as well as the tenant-related risks of RentCoverUltra.
