What's covered

Having the right cover in place means you’re helping to protect one of your most valuable assets. Here’s a summary of the cover and features available with this insurance. You can also add optional extras to suit your needs.

For full details of the terms, conditions and exclusions, please see the full policy document – it’s simple and easy to understand.

Get the right sum insured for you

Your sum insured is the overall amount your home is covered for. It’s your responsibility to ensure it’s enough to fully rebuild or repair your home, so you’re not left with a shortfall in the event of a claim.

Your sum insured needs to take into account the cost of all structures, special features, labour, professional fees (e.g. architects, council consents), demolition costs, and removal of any debris.

To help work out your sum insured, get an estimated rebuild cost by using either:

  • A registered valuer, quantity surveyor, or other specialist 
  • The Cordell Sum Sure online calculator.

Qualify for the SumExtra benefit

If your home is damaged or destroyed and your sum insured amount isn’t enough to pay for repairs or a rebuild, and you qualify, then the SumExtra benefit provides either:

  • Up to an extra 10% of your sum insured for damage caused by natural disaster
  • The cost to repair or rebuild your home for damage caused by any covered event, other than a natural disaster.

It's easy to qualify. Just work out the estimated cost of rebuilding your home using accepted calculation methods – like the Cordell Sum Sure online calculator or the advice of a registered valuer – to set your sum insured. 

To stay qualified, be sure to check and adjust your sum insured every three years or when you’ve made improvements to your home.  

Make sure you keep a copy of the written cost estimate in a safe place. You’ll need it to obtain the SumExtra benefit.
