Are you paying too much for home insurance?

Are You Paying Too Much

If you live in the Waikato, Auckland or Northern Regions you could be.

Insurers have changed the way they calculate the sum to rebuild your home in the event of a natural disaster. It’s a consequence of the Christchurch and Kaikoura earthquakes and a recent survey on GrownUps found that people were not aware of this change or were confused about their cover.

What’s confusing?
Insurers have moved to a risk based pricing model. This means if you live in a high risk area then unfortunately theres a good chance your premiums will increase however it also means if you live in a low risk area then those premiums could decrease too.

This move toward risk based pricing has led to premium hikes of up to 300% so if you live in a low risk area it is a good idea to have an assessment of your insurance needs done as you may not be getting the full benefits of reduced premiums.
