Buying a home should be one of the most exciting times in your life but it’s often one of the most stressful.
Amidst applying for a home loan, searching for your dream home, negotiating with real estate agents and organising all sorts of inspections, the last thing on your mind is protecting your new home with insurance.
That’s why we offer our home buyers free to settlement on our combined building and contents insurance- giving you peace of mind before you move in.
What is free to settlement?
Free to settlement is a feature that we offer on our combined building and contents insurance that covers your new home for the time between signing the contract and the settlement date. The best part? Your insurance premiums are free until your property has settled (up to a maximum of 90 days).
Why do I need to be covered before my home settles?
Most people are unaware that in Queensland a home buyer generally becomes responsible for any property damage from 5 pm the following business day after they sign their contract*. That’s why it’s important to ensure that your new home is protected in case the unexpected happens before you move in.
How do I qualify for free to settlement?
If you’re purchasing your home or investment property with the help of MOVE Bank, we can organise this for you!
