Your insurance advisor should be able to determine the quality of the insurers before including them in you options.
2) House insurance Coverage vs Rebuilding Costs
The value of the land under your house should not be covered from theft, windstorm, fire or the other perils covered in your house insurance policy. On the contrary, make sure you include communal areas such as a pool, patio, garage etc.
3) Holiday House Contents Coverage
Many insurers will not include content cover unless the house is visited every so often, typically every sixty days. Make sure this is clearly stated in your policy. Also carefully review what your policy includes or exludes from coverage e.g. jewellery, bank cheques, bank notes etc.
4) No-excess Plans
Review your policy carefully and clarify if there will be a participation from you in the total amount of a claim. Chooce ‘no-excess plans’ if available.
