Rent­ing out for RWC

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

State In­sur­ance is ad­vis­ing home­own­ers to speak with their in­surer if they in­tend to rent their home to vis­i­tors dur­ing the Rugby World Cup. State ex­ec­u­tive gen­eral man­ager Mary­Jane Daly says its home and con­tents poli­cies would typ­i­cally con­tinue to of­fer cover on homes rented out through the tour­na­ment be­cause of the one-off na­ture of the event. Home­own­ers, how­ever, need to ad­vise their in­surer of ‘‘any change that may in­crease the chance of a claim’’, which would in­clude no­ti­fy­ing of any pe­riod when they rent out their home. Not do­ing so could jeop­ar­dise their cover and abil­ity to make a claim. Ms Daly said State’s home in­sur­ance poli­cies do not cover in­ten­tional dam­age by a ten­ant, but this could be eas­ily ar­ranged to cover the du­ra­tion of the World Cup ten­ancy.
