Home Building & Contents Insurance

Your home is most likely the greatest and most valuable asset you’ll come to own, so it’s important to ensure that your investment is protected with a comprehensive insurance policy using a qualified Home Insurance Broker.

The age-old saying “the poor man pays twice” is just as true in this area. Many individuals focus solely on the price point as opposed to ensuring that their cover actually protects their interests from a wide range of risks. This results in individuals not being covered for a number of commonly occurring events for the sake of a few hundred dollars. You will have peace of mind when insuring your Home through Morgan Insurance Brokers that your greatest asset is insured correctly.

A few insurers on our panel do apply disccounts if you have other policies insured with them. However, as your Insurance Broker, we approach multiple insurers on your behalf.

A Policy Wording/ Product Disclosure Statement, or PDS contains your insurance policy terms and conditions, policy coverages and exclusions, your requirements as a policy holder, and also the insurer’s requirements when entering into an insurance contract. These can be very lengthy, and hard to understand. Morgan Insurance Brokers can guide you through decifering the document so you know exactly what you’re covered for.

A Target Market Determination (TMD) sets out who an insurance product is appropriate for. It also contains conditions around how the insurance product can be distributed.

Your building sum insured should reflect the replacement cost if the property was to burn down. Always think worse case scenario. Other factors in determining the replacement cost is professional fees and removal of debris. These should be in additional to the cost to rebuild. The figure will not be the market value of your property, and it won’t be the market value, less the land value.

For a closer figure, we recommend using a building sum insured calculator which can be accessed here:
