What is house insurance?


Your home is likely to be your most valuable asset, and it can be extremely stressful both emotionally and financially if your home is destroyed by things that are beyond your control, like an earthquake or fire. You might think the chances of something unexpected happening where you live are small, however, it’s worth noting that there have been a growing number of natural disasters throughout New Zealand recently and no place in New Zealand is necessarily immune to these disasters. That’s why having house insurance is so important.


House insurance is designed to cover you for sudden accidents and damage to your house, from burst pipes to the costs of a total rebuild. More specifically, it covers things like:



If your home is destroyed as a result of an event covered by your insurance, your policy pays the full costs of the repairs or rebuild of your home.



Your policy also pays the reasonable costs of alternative accommodation, if you can’t live in your home because of a loss or damage covered in your policy.



Your clothes, electronics, furniture and other personal items are covered if they are stolen or destroyed by an event listed in your policy.



If you or family members accidentally damage someone else’s property, or a friend or neighbour is injured in your home which is caused by or in connection with ownership of the home, you will be covered.
