3 important questions about home insurance for borrowers

When do I need insurance?

Insurance may be required at different times depending on the property’s location, the type of property and terms of your purchase contract, so it’s important to find out when you might need it.

IMPORTANT: Speak to your conveyancer or lawyer to confirm what applies to your circumstances.

How do I get insurance?

Our helpful guides take the guesswork out of discovering what insurance, and how much cover, you may need.

I have insurance, what happens next?

Before your loan can settle, you may need to provide a copy of your building insurance certificate (unless you’re covered by strata or buying vacant land). You can either upload it to online banking or send a copy to your lender. The final steps of the loan application process are:

  • Sign your loan documents
  • Provide any outstanding information 
  • Settle and get the keys!

How much cover do I need?
