Hi guys,

 

Looking for options/feedback on Contract Works insurance for our new house build - have got an estimate from State so far (~$950) but keen to get some thoughts (good and bad) on them and other providers?

Got ours through Lumley, cost the same as yours but was only for a $40,000 contract. $950 sounds great for a new house build.

I got ours through Vero, but as the build was a lot bigger, so was the bill :-)

 

 

 

Ask them about how to handle extensions for cover, in case the complete date moves

Value of the build will be around $575k (for the sake of comparison).  Builder has public liability insurance.

Consider putting the contract works with the same company you intend on insuring the home/contents with. If there is any hold up with the ccc at the end it will be a bit simpler to insure without double insurance in place.

Also, always buy it for longer than you need. Contract works always go over and the insurer will charge a minimum premium to extend even for a short period. To add a extra couple of months up front will normally only cost a couple of dollars.
