What is a Multi Unit Rental Property?
A Multi Unit Rental Property consists of two or more units, townhouses or flats that share the same roof or are connected in some way (e.g. car-port or deck). Each unit must be self contained and have the same owner.
Some examples of multi units are:
- a two story house where each level has a separate tenancy
- a block of flats
- cross lease units, connected by a carport.
- duplex townhouses
- rental house with attached self contained studio / granny flat
- these units are all rented out, you don’t live there yourself
There are some limitations as to what the multi unit properties we can insure.
- We cannot insure more than 8 units.
- We cannot insure properties that are more than 3 stories.
- The tenancies must not be short term or holiday lets.
- The property must be residential use only.
- We cannot insure individual or multiple units that form part of a body corporate.
