As New Zealand’s leading rural insurer, FMG’s Home policy considers rural residential risks. This includes automatic cover to replace or rebuild your septic tank which hasn’t been damaged but needs to be reconnected following a claim on your home.
Our policy also covers damage caused by natural disaster event including earthquake, tsunami, hydrothermal activity, or landslip. If the loss to your home is also covered by EQC (Earthquake Commission), we will pay the difference between your EQCover and the cover you have under this policy.
