    Absolutely and I have that. However most companies only go to 20k (per property). That wouldn't last very long with a big property.

    A payout would be quicker. Then you could repay the bank. If you go for rebuild you have no rent coming in, and interest still to pay.

    So they do depreciate the property.
    Yeah gobbledekook. They should give an example of how to calculate the depreciation but I guess they don't

    Thanks
    I had no idea this was happening.
    Like Leftette, I would love to know their justification.
    Does sound dishonest/fraudulent if not in the fine print.
    I see what I can find out too

    Thanks I have read the article.
    So the policy pays for the QS after the event only?
    Would be nice to have some financing for QS now but I guess that is unlikely.

    Yes they would rebuild the same size and quality.
    If an older house with nice wood, decorative features, and high ceilings etc, these of course would not be replicated.
    I am getting a QS because I...

    First I haven't done a subdivision.

    I would start this way:

    Ask a surveyor, council, rough costs and timeframe
    What about drainage? Ask a plumber?
    Permission - you can get a meeting with...

    We weren't sure.
    What we knew was that the husband leased the house without the wife seeing it. She didn't like aspects of it.
    Also personally I think the rent was high for a family; certainly not...

    That's correct.
    The insurance company will just say the house would cost less to rebuild than the sum insured.

    Thanks.
    It was very unpleasant and responding to their complaints took up so much of our time. We offered to release them twice but they didn't respond to that.
    We were worried about malicious...

    You have to read you policy wording.
    But apparently not. I have just found this out myself. You insure for total sum but the company will pay what they assess the house is worth. AA told me this was...

    Would you believe it we had worse than any of the five types you mention. Combined.

    A professional family. Something we did must have tipped them. I think it was an email response to a rude email...

    Wayne is right.
    You will be tainted.

    One thing I do know (but don't trust me, ask Matthew or Ross), if you have buy and holds bought before you start trading, they are not tainted.

    I don't think you can get it for vacancies, I've never heard of it.

    Did you think of putting a removable building or sleepout on the section? Cheaper and you can choose to move it somewhere else if you later choose to renovate, need the building elsewhere etc.
