• Protection for your home


    Your home is usually your biggest investment – so it’s important to protect it. RACV Home Buildings Insurance covers the cost to repair or rebuild your home when it has been damaged as a result of an insured event, such as fire, theft or storm. For full details, see our policy documents below. 

With an RACV Home Buildings Insurance policy, you'll be covered for a range of events, such as fire, theft and storm. Here's a summary of what's included:

  • Buildings and fixtures such as light fittings and kitchen cupboards. Includes garage, carport, fences, and in-ground pools.
  • Building materials at your home – such as bricks, tiles and timber – are covered up to $1000 for loss or damage as a result of an insured event.
  • Temporary accommodation if you can’t live in your home as a result of an insured event. This also includes temporary accommodation for your pet, the removal and storage of your contents, and for any costs we agree are reasonable and appropriate. 
  • Demolition and debris removal and costs to make your site safe, such as temporary fencing, once reviewed and agreed to.
  • Costs to meet in-force building regulations to repair or rebuild a part of your home damaged by an insured event.
  • Up to $20 million in liability cover to handle a claim made against you or your family for an incident that takes place at your home or site which causes death or injury to someone else, or causes loss or damage to someone else's property.

This is only a summary of the inclusions for RACV Home Buildings Insurance. For more information, such as conditions, limits and exclusions, please read the Product Disclosure Statement.
