REP 89 Making home insurance better
Released January 2007.
In September 2005, we released a report on home building underinsurance Getting home insurance right (the 2005 report). The 2005 report comprehensively examined the causes of home building underinsurance in light of the devastating Canberra bushfires in 2003, where over 400 homes were destroyed.
This report examines what steps insurance companies had subsequently taken to tackle the causes of underinsurance since the release of the 2005 report.
