How much insurance do you need?
If your house is destroyed by a sudden and accidental event like a fire or flood, we’ll pay to have it rebuilt up to its current size and specification. In the case of a natural disaster, it will be replaced up to the 'sum insured' you specify. This is the maximum your insurance company will pay out if your home is destroyed.
Your sum insured is not the same as the market value of your house. It’s calculated based on how much it’s likely to cost to rebuild after a natural disaster.
You can ask a licensed builder, quantity surveryor, architect or registered valuer to help you work out your sum insured, or you can do it yourself with the independent online Cordell Sum Sure calculator.
