Protecting your investment property and income

How do you best protect a property you own and rent to tenants?  Choosing the occupants carefully helps, but even with model tenants there’s no guarantee they’ll take care of things to the standard you’d like.

As a landlord, you need to reduce your vulnerability to vandalism, malicious damage, and theft. Not to mention lost rental income should your property become unliveable because of major damage.

You also need protection from those unlikely, but still possible, risks like fire, lightning and storm or flood damage, falling trees and unforeseen catastrophes. 

With Hunter United’s Landlord Cover, you have peace of mind that you’ll be covered if your property is damaged or destroyed by specific events as set out in the policy wording.

Competitive, convenient cover backed by QBE

Landlord Cover is one of a comprehensive range of insurance solutions Hunted United offers through our association with QBE Insurance.  

Founded in 1886, QBE is one of Australia’s leading insurers.  It’s because of QBE’s experience, security and strength – as well as its prompt, efficient and friendly claims service that we’ve made it our general insurance provider.  

This partnership enables us to deliver Hunter United members quality and value in insurance products, with the added convenience of having everything under the same roof.

A range of ways to save

With Hunter United there are various ways to enjoy discounts on your premium.

Security discounts

The more secure your property is – through deadlocks, window locks, and either local or monitored alarms – the less you may have to pay.  

Household no claim bonus

Continue to earn No Claim Bonus discount, up to our maximum level, the more years you go without making a claim.

Seniors discount

If any named Policyholders are over 50 years of age, you are entitled to the over 50s discount.

Multi-policy discount

Once you have one MemberCare insurance policy with us, we’ll give you a discount on each additional MemberCare policy #

A choice of excess

Your excess is the initial amount you have to pay yourself if you make a claim, and we offer options of $100, $250, $300, $400, $500, $750, $1,000, $2,500, $5,000, $7,500 and $10,000.  The higher the excess you choose, the lower the premium you’ll pay.

Easy to arrange, simple to claim

The convenience of having Landlord’s Insurance under the same roof as your financial services isn’t the only way we make life easier. From making your application to making a claim, Hunter United ensures things are as straightforward as possible.   

You can apply online, by phone, or at any branch. Flexible payment options include fortnightly, monthly or annual direct debit or credit card payments (excluding Diners Club).

If you do need to make a claim, we won’t make you wade through paperwork.  QBE have a 24-hour emergency claims number, and in most cases, you need just provide details over the phone.
