Your house is also your castle, where you keep your family safe and sound. It is likely to be one of your major assets, and you constantly work hard and take necessary precautions to keep it secure. There are certain risks which are just beyond you, such as fire, burglary and flood. You can be protected against these common risks with Allianz Houseowner / Householder Insurance (Fire Insurance for Residential Unit) and have a peace of mind. Click here for Commercial Fire Insurance.
Houseowner Insurance covers your residential building (house/flat/ apartment including fixtures, fittings, garages, walls, gates and fences around the house) while Householder Insurance covers your household contents and personal effects which belong to you or members of your family.
If your house is still under mortgage, it is very likely that your bank would have insured your property against fire and charge the premium to your loan. You should take note that the Houseowner Insurance coverage amount is based on re-construction cost and not your market value. Your property may now be valued RM1million, but cost of re-construction, if destroyed by fire may be RM400,000. Your sum insured should then be based on RM400,000.
If you own a non-landed property, you do not need to worry about purchasing a fire or houseowner insurance, as your building management office / Joint Management Committee would purchases fire insurance on your behalf, and is charged to you through maintenance fees. Under the Strata Titles (Amendment) Act 2013, management corporations are required to provide sufficient insurance coverage against fire for buildings under their care.
