Majority of residents in the UAE live in rented apartments or homes, which are typically insured by the landlord. What most of us are not aware of however is that the contents of our home are not insured by the landlord’s insurance.
We know that your home is one of your most valuable possessions and keeping it safe and sound are of paramount importance. And, protecting your home by insuring it appropriately is always of much concern. Hence our Home Tenant’s All Risk Insurance has been designed to provide you with a feeling of security and peace of mind.
If there is an attempt of theft or an accident in your home, you would not be compensated for the loss or damage of your favourite camera, laptop, solitaire ring and all the other valuable belongings that mean a lot to you.
Our Home Tenant’s All Risk Insurance covers you for damage or loss of your belongings, all at a very affordable price – whether you are in the comfort of your home or have stepped out. In addition to our standard cover, we provide optional policy features, which you can add to your standard policy for a small fee. This way you can tailor the cover to suit your budget and needs.
The Basic Insurance cover starts at AED 200 and provides cover for all your contents including household goods and personal effects (including Personal Money up to AED 2,500) belonging to you (or for which you are legally responsible) or to resident Domestic Helpers whilst within your Home, including fixtures and fittings belonging to you (or for which you are responsible) not being landlord’s fixtures and fittings and interior decorations.
This policy covers for damage due to fire, explosion, lightning, earthquake, smoke*, storm* or flood,* water escaping accidentally from pipes/equipment or fixed heating systems/water tanks, loss of contents due to attempted burglary/theft (when someone breaks in or breaks out of your house through doors/windows)*, provided your doors were locked during the attempt, falling trees or branches, lamp posts or telegraph poles.
We acknowledge that every individual has different priorities. That is why we offer a wide range of covers to include options so that you can get the right cover to suit your need. By paying a small fee, you can extend your Basic Insurance to cover:
