Home warranty insurance

Overview

A house may be one of your biggest assets and one which you will want to protect. It is for this reason that, if you are renovating or building a new house, it is mandatory for your contractor to take out home warranty insurance on your behalf.

In this section, we tell you what is and isn't covered and you can view easy-to-use premium tables so that you can calulate how much the premium will cost.

We help you sort out errors on your insurance documents and tell you what to do if the insurance needs to be cancelled. We also give guidance on more serious issues such as your builder going into bankruptcy.

If you want to know the fine detail of exactly what the policy covers, make sure you read the applicable policy or product disclosure booklet for the insurance conditions.
