Home Insurance 101

You love your house, so protect it. House insurance that covers your residential property from natural disasters, such as bushfires and floods, and accidental damage is a no brainer.

ANZ Home Insurance offers full building replacement, which covers the cost of rebuilding your home so there is no need to set a sum insured amount.

Understand the importance of getting the right amount of sum insured for your home, and what full building replacement covers.
