Insure the things you love with AXA

You work hard to pay the rent, and you spend your hard-earned cash on the things you love. Now you can protect your most valued contents in your home from theft, storm, flood, water and fire damage - at a price that won't break the bank.

If you are currently renting a house or apartment, you should know the details of who insures what. For instance, if there's a leak in your home and your personal belongings are destroyed, are you covered? Find out below.

What does the landlord usually insure?

The landlord must insure the building itself. Management fees are normally used to insure the apartment building on behalf of the landlord. So if there’s a building-wide leak or a fire, the building is covered.

Fixed items belonging to the landlord such as, kitchen fittings, built-in wardrobes and white appliances.

Be aware, the landlord does not cover your personal belongings, or furnishings you've added.

What should renters insure?

Any personal belongings and valuable contents in your home, as they would not be covered in the case of theft, storm, flood, water and fire damage.

Items such as an engagement ring, watches or other jewellery; entertainment equipment such as TVs and gaming consoles, tablets and laptops; instruments; fine art, clothing and furniture.

If you own a house or apartment, then you likely have buildings insurance but you still need contents insurance for your valuables inside your home.
