FMG’s Employee House policy is specifically designed to cover properties you own for employee housing.

It provides cover for the physical house and other structures like garages and driveways, but also includes specific cover benefits for you acting as a landlord for an employee.

This policy automatically covers your legal liability in the event you accidentally damage someone else’s property or contents, or accidentally injure someone at your property.

It includes cover for your legal liability under the Innkeepers Act 1962, for loss or damage to property caused by a guest. This policy also covers up to $5,000 for hidden damage caused over time by a leaking internal waste or water pipe.

At renewal time, we will review your sum insured amount and may make an adjustment for inflation.


Optional benefits

You can purchase optional benefits for even more comprehensive cover

Excess free glass and sanitary fixtures (FMG recommended)
If your claim is for damage to glass doors, windows or skylights, permanently fixed mirrors that are part of the house, hand basins, baths, toilet bowls or glass shower doors, you won’t have to pay an excess.

Lifestyle block fencing 
Insures fencing or windbreaks used for operations on your lifestyle block for present day value, up to $5,000.

Lifestyle block pumps and motors
Pumps and motors used to service your lifestyle block are insured against breakdown or failure, up to the value of $5,000.

Matching floor coverings 
If your carpet or other floor coverings need replacing after a loss covered by this policy, and you can’t find a match for what you have in other rooms, then we’ll replace the lot.
