What is Property Insurance?
Property Insurance involves financial protection for your house or related structure if something bad were to happen to it. Your property isn’t just a collection of walls - it’s the home that you’ve built for yourself and your family, so you really need to think about how you’ve planned to maintain your property.
Property Insurance includes the fixed structures of your property, such as walls, roofing, piping, boreholes, gate motors, fencing, pools, sheds, garages, windows, boundary walls, lapas, geysers, built-in cupboards, safety structures such as barbed wire and burglar bars, and built-in features like ovens, basins or sinks. All these things can become extremely expensive if they need to be replaced out of pocket!
Why do you need Property Insurance?
Freak events like floods and other natural disasters, burst/leaking geysers and accidental fires are unpredictable. With our Property Insurance, we will help you prepare yourself for unexpected events on your property. You can think of Property Insurance as a large investment: you wouldn’t want to be left cold and alone in a flood with a new, massive debt to rebuild your home because something unpredictable happened.
By taking out Property Insurance, you won't be left with all of the unexpected costs that come with rebuilding your home. These can include demolition charges, municipal fees, waste/debris removal and costs for securing the property for safe living again.
If you were to spend time calculating the value of your building, you have to remember to include every wall, gate, shed, window, paving, roof tile, storey, building type, borehole, alarm, door knob, tap and basin… and so much more that we didn’t list! Replacing all of these elements can become unaffordable should something drastic happen to your property and its contents.
We know that affordability matters when you’re faced with an unexpected situation. With Budget Insurance, taking out our Property Insurance means that you’ll be taking care of yourself and your property when you find yourself in a tough spot due to accidental or natural disaster damage.
We know that it can be difficult to anticipate all of the potential issues you may have, so it’s a smart idea to get broad coverage that protects you against as many risks as possible.
