To avoid being underinsured, your home and contents sum insured should reflect what it would cost to rebuild your house or replace your contents at today’s prices.
After the numerous flooding events throughout the country in recent years, it is important that we provide our customers with flood cover even if it is unlikely a flood will occur at their address.
Yes, your home is covered if it is unoccupied, however an additional excess will apply to any claim made during this time if the home has been unoccupied for more than 60 consecutive days.
Your Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) and your latest certificate of insurance both contain detailed information regarding what is not covered under your policy.
Your Suncorp policy provides you with up to $20 million legal liability cover.
Legal liability covers your liability to pay compensation for death or bodily injury to other people or loss or damage to their property resulting from an incident, which happens in connection with you owning or living in the home at the insured address. For instance, if a person was to come onto your property and injure themselves by tripping whilst climbing the stairs, the Home legal liability component of your policy would respond if you were found legally liable for the injury sustained and damages were sought from you.*
Legal liability on contents also covers your liability to pay compensation for an incident, which causes death or bodily injury to other people anywhere in Australia or New Zealand. So if you were playing golf at your local golf club and your ball was to strike another player causing injury, the contents legal liability component of your policy would respond if you were found legally liable for the injury sustained and damages were sought from you*.
* This example assumes your claim was not otherwise excluded by your policy.
Carpets are covered as part of your contents insurance.
When an assessor comes to your home, the appointment may take anywhere from 30 minutes to several hours to complete. The assessor can give you a clearer indication of this when they call you to book your assessment.
A home claim assessment is a process that involves determining the outcome of your claim after loss or damage to your home or contents.
*Actions or movements of the sea and storm surge are not covered (unless the storm surge damage occurs at the same time as damage caused by storm). We don't cover retaining walls or flood damage to wharves, jetties, pontoons, other exclusions apply.
We do not cover water damage caused by wear and tear or the gradual leaking of liquid, e.g. leaking shower bases. See PDS for more details.
