Frequently asked questions
To make your life easier, you can make a number of changes to your home insurance policy online. Through your AAMI account, you can change the sum of contents you’re insured for, update the sum of your insured building, update the unspecified portable items included in your cover, and more.
Simply log in, click on the ‘My policy list’ link, and select the relevant policy you want to update. From the ‘Update my policy’ tab, you’ll find several options for making changes. Unfortunately, some things can’t be altered online, including changing your cover type (for example, from Property Owner to Landlord), and changing the specified portables listed on your cover. For these things please contact us - we’ll be happy to help you out.
Thanks for continuing to choose AAMI for your home insurance needs! We’ve made it super easy to renew online, using your AAMI account. Simply log in, click on ‘My policy list’ and choose the policy you want to renew, and select the ‘Renew now’ button.
How do I determine the right sum insured for my home?
To avoid being underinsured, your home sum insured should reflect what it would cost to rebuild your house at today’s prices.
To help you estimate the rebuild cost of your home you can use the Building Calculator.
Please note that the calculator is intended as a guide only and not intended to be relied on for the purpose of making a decision in relation to purchasing our products. The calculator might include questions that you may not see in other calculators. These questions can affect the estimate that in calculated. Consider whether you need a professional valuation from an architect, builder or other valuation expert.
For more information refer to ‘About Your Sum Insured’ in the PDS.
Will I be covered by my Landlord Insurance if my tenant stops paying the rent but does not leave my property?
If you have an existing AAMI Landlord Insurance policy and you purchased Tenant Protection as an optional extra, you may be covered for loss of rent. You must have taken all reasonable steps legally available to you to remedy non-payment and/or evict the tenant (if possible).
Limits and exclusions apply, so please check the Product Disclosure Statement.
AAMI Lucky Club® is made available by AAI Limited ABN 48 005 297 807 trading as AAMI ("AAMI") to customers of selected AAMI branded insurance policies.
Insurance is issued by AAI Limited ABN 48 005 297 807 trading as AAMI. Limits, conditions and exclusions apply. Read the Product Disclosure Statement before buying this insurance. This advice has been prepared without taking into account your particular objectives, financial situations or needs, so you should consider whether it is appropriate for you before acting on it.
By ‘malicious’ we mean something done deliberately to harm your property.
For example, if your tenant smashes holes in the wall after they’ve been given an eviction notice, that’s considered malicious and is covered.
We don’t mean accidents, reckless or negligent acts, which aren’t covered. Examples of these are:
- Your tenant never empties the bins causing bad smells and infestation.
- Your tenant accidentally spills a glass of wine and ruins the carpet.
- The children of your tenant put a hole in the wall while playing indoors.
This is a just summary. For full details check the PDS (Product Disclosure Statement). It’s dry, we know, but it’s essential reading.
We are currently unable to offer Tenant Protection Optional Cover on new Landlord Insurance policies until further notice.
