What you should know about your Getcover Property Insurance Policy

The information below provides useful information in relation to your policy.
However, a complete list of covers and exclusions can be found on your policy document.

Your Insurance Policy is underwritten by Aviva Insurance Limited.

Getcover & Company is an Irish owned and run Insurance broker based in Sandyford in Dublin and has been in business for over 10 years. The company is regulated by the Central Bank of Ireland. Our phone number is 01 290 8833.

When taking out a property policy with Getcover.ie you should carefully read the asumptions/eligibility conditions associated with the risk you are insuring. If the risk does not conform to the conditions, don’t worry, you can call us on 01 290 8833 and we should be able to organise an alternative quote for you.

If you avail of a discount because you have a Burglar Alarm on your premises, the alarm must be installed and maintained to the EN50131 Standard (old IS199). Your installer will be able to confirm this to you. Remember, in the event of a claim you may be asked to provide the required certification. Also, where you avail of an alarm discount, loss or damage by stealing is excluded unless the alarm is set and in operation when your house is unoccupied.

No more than 25% of the roof area of the property in question may be covered in flat felt and the roof area in question must be inspected at least once every two years by a qualified builder or property surveyor and appropriate repairs must be carried out.

If at the time of a loss, your sum insured for Buildings or Contents is less than the full reinstatement or replacement cost, you will be your own insurer for the difference. We will only pay our share of the loss or damage which your sum insured bears to such cost.
For example, if you underinsure your property by 50%, in the event of claim, only 50% of the claim will be met by your insurer.

All Risks covers loss of or damage to personal possessions, valuables, clothing and other belongings both in and out of the property.
This is optional cover available on Household Insurance and Owner Occupier contents policies.

Aviva claims reporting procedure

If you have experienced a problem that may result in a claim, you can call the help in a home emergency service (if it is an emergency) and, if necessary, the police. Make sure to phone the Aviva Property Claims Service on 1890 666 888 as soon as you can for help and guidance with your claim. A dedicated specialist will take details of the damage or loss. There are no forms to fill and some types of claims are settled over the phone. If your insurer needs to assess the damage or loss, they will make an appointment for a loss adjuster to visit you.

Help in a home emergency cover (Aviva policies only)

There is no cover provided for any property held in connection with any business, trade or professional purpose other than home office equipment as referred to in the definition of contents.

You and any member of your household must take all reasonable steps to protect the property and prevent accidents. This also means that you must keep the property in good repair.

You must immediately tell us about any change which may affect your insurance cover or increase the risk of loss or damage. If you do not your cover may not be valid.

Make sure you keep valuation and receipts for items of value. You may need to produce them in the event of a claim.
