A lot of times the causes of water damages are not controllable. Australia is prone to many natural disasters each year, such as thunderstorms or cyclones and are mostly the cause for water damage. They can cause flooding from pipe bursts, appliance malfunctions, roof leaks, foundation leaks, or septic tank overflows. Flash flooding, pipe bursts, and sewage backups are especially dangerous as they can produce several inches of water in less than a day. There is unfortunately not a lot you can do to prevent natural disasters from damaging your property.
Further reasons that we identify often as a reason for water damage are: poor drainage, a faulty installation of shower/basins or failure of washing machine/dishwasher. Especially when building new or doing a rebuild, make sure to find specialists to help you with the installations! Also always be aware of turning off your taps properly, forgetting to do so can cause huge damages.
Water damage to the contents of a rental property is also a common insurance claim. In some cases, it may be caused by the tenant or faulty appliances and fittings (e.g. leaks from a washing machine or dishwasher) or by problems relating to the property (such as a burst pipe or a leaking sink).
Many standard building and contents policies exclude water damage due to accidents caused by the tenant, or limit cover to the contents, not the building, so it’s important to have landlord insurance to cover as many contingencies as possible.
As a property owner, it is also advisable to check the extent to which you are covered for storm, flood and general water damage to your property, and to understand any exclusions of cover.
