Landlord Insurance in Sydney, New South Wales

If you are a property owner in New South Wales it is essential to have landlord insurance if you rent your property to tenants. It’s not enough to simply have home owner’s insurance, because this type of insurance is not designed to cover the full spectrum of risk scenarios that are possible when you have tenants.

Landlord Insurance in Sydney

Home owner’s insurance is just a very basic policy that insures you against most common problems that might affect your home (plus a few less common ones) and also against a limited range of liability that might arise out of your home ownership.

The premiums for insurance are calculated based on complex formulas which take into account the value of the property, the geographic location of the property, and the assessed risk based on these factors.

Tenants will be assessed as a significantly higher level of risk compared to if you were living in the home yourself. The potential for liability is greatly increased in this situation, and you have a responsibility to yourself and your tenants to make sure you’re properly covered by insurance.

Understanding the risk

As a Sydney property owner, you stand to lose a lot if you get involved in a legal dispute, and that’s even if you win the dispute. Sydney property values are high, and if you can’t afford to pay your legal costs, your property is the most likely source from which funds will be taken to recover the debt. Imagine how much worse things are if you lose the legal fight.

Here’s a hypothetical example of something that could happen. Suppose that your tenant ignores the “no pets” clause in the lease agreement and brings home a huge canine bundle of joy because he saw it in an animal shelter and it tugged at his heartstrings.

Unfortunately the tenant has only just acquired this new pet, and has virtually no knowledge of its previous history. The tenant hasn’t had time to interact with the pet and certainly hasn’t had time to train it. Upon arriving at your home, the dog has a major freak-out.

It tears around the house bumping into the furniture, scratching up the floor, and does something completely unmentionable to the carpet. The horrified tenant puts the dog out in the yard and desperately tries to clean up the mess before it becomes a more permanent problem.

Out in the yard, Fido’s excitement and bewilderment only become worse. He digs furiously at the ground, decimates the flower bed, crushes the tree you planted last winter, and then spots a gap at the edge of the gate he can squeeze under.

Now free to unleash the full reign of his terror on the neighbourhood, Fido barks furiously at a seven year old on a bicycle. The kid loses control of the bike and swerves into the path of an oncoming car. The driver, fortunately, sees the danger and reacts instantly, but the edge of the bumper still clips the kid and sends him sprawling, while the car goes off the road and crashes into a neighbour’s mailbox.

Your tenant rushes out of the house, grabs Fido, drags him back home, and gives him a stern telling off. What an amazing chain reaction of events. Now who is liable for the cost of all the damage? If you guessed it was the tenant, you’d be sadly mistaken.

At best, the tenant is liable only for the damage to your carpet and furnishings, and even then only because he disobeyed a clause in the lease agreement. Plus you will be unlikely to actually recover any costs outside of the rent deposit they have paid because the tenant most likely does not have insurance and most likely does not have the money to pay for the damages.

The real threat is those third-party costs. There’s no way a lawyer is going to go after the tenant for damages. The lawyer will go to where he or she thinks the money is, and that’s you. You’re expected to have landlord insurance, after all. They’ll be really surprised if you don’t have it, but you’ll still be stuck with all the liability anyway, because you own the property.

Just one out of thousands of possible scenarios you could encounter as a landlord, and one you won’t have to worry about if you have appropriate insurance.

“‘Our recent claim has now been settled and its thanks to you and your team for your assistance and support. Your claims department was caring whilst acting in our interest at all times.
The best thing, most valuable support was the relocation allowance and financial assistance which was part of your insurance package. Before we bought your insurance we thought we would never use this benefit. We are so glad we did, and so are our pets who were also relocated. A family lifesaver.
In particular though, along with my husband and children I wish to thank you for your outstanding
service and professionalism. A truly first class service. Thank you”

Daniele Ferguson
