Rent Default and Legal Expenses Optional Cover

By adding this optional cover to your landlord’s protection insurance, you’ll be covered for damage and expenses, even if your tenants leave without paying their rent.


We’ll pay up to 10 weeks rent (up to $1,000 a week) or the sum insured for loss of rent, whichever is less. And when we accept your claim, we’ll also pay your legal expenses up to $1,000.

You’ll be covered when a tenant:

  • Vacates before the end of the agreed rental period without notice
  • Does not pay rent owing under the lease agreement and vacates the property
  • Does not pay rent and is legally evicted
  • Is denied legal access to your property by a local, state or Commonwealth authority
