Student Accommodation Insurance Website
Do you offer student accommodation? Are you suitably covered?
Most student accommodation properties are insured under domestic home policies. This is insufficient and claims made under these policies will be rejected.
Suppose a student fell down the stairs and become permanently incapacitated and they, or their family, claim $5,000,000 compensation from you, how would you pay them?
If you submitted a claim under the public liability section of a home or landlords policy to indemnify you, you can guarantee the relevant insurance company will thoroughly investigate the use of the property and the claim would be rejected unless you had a policy specifically designed for this purpose.
We would add that all agents for owners of student accommodation facilities could be held vicariously liable if the correct insurance cover is not in place.
We have developed a facility through an APRA approved insurance company which is designed specifically for the student accommodation industry.
