If silt has been deposited on the land around your home, EQCover may cover the cost incurred to clean up and remove the debris from under and up to 8m away your home. In addition to this, if the main accessway to your home has had silt deposited onto it, EQCover may cover the cost incurred to clean up and remove the debris from that accessway up to 60m away from the home. Cover from Toka Tū Ake EQC is limited to the value of the land.
If silt has entered your home and damaged your home and/or contents, any repair or replacement will be covered by your home and/or contents insurance policy.
It’s still early days in the assessment process of areas impacted by storms and flooding. We may be waiting on availability of assessors and specialists to assess the silt damage to your property and provide us with the necessary reports. Once we have this information, we’ll be able to determine the repair costs and the cover you’re entitled to under EQCover and your AA Insurance policy.
