How to get insurance on your own if you’re homeless
If you’re a homeless person in New South Wales, you might be able to get home insurance if you’ve got a property that’s worth more than $2,500, or if you own a property worth more $5,000 or more.
The government says that in most cases, your insurance company will automatically give you a premium, even if you have no savings.
But you’ll need to ask your insurance provider for a claim if you don’t get that premium, and you can only get the full premium if you get the other insureds premium.
The NSW Government has been working to increase the availability of home insurance coverage, but a lot of the new insurance coverage won’t be available until the end of July.
If you’re looking to buy home insurance on the cheap, check out the NSH Insurance guide, where we’ll explain what to expect and how to use it.
What’s the difference between home insurance and residential insurance?
Home insurance covers the cost of your property and can cover repairs or other costs.
Residential insurance covers your property as it’s being used and can’t cover damage or theft.
Home insurance protects against damage to your home if you or your neighbours are hurt or killed, or when someone else is injured or killed.

Can I get home or residential insurance on my own?
You can buy home or personal property insurance on a first come, first serve basis, so it’s best to check before you buy if your property is worth more.
Homeowners in NSW have been able to purchase home insurance for more than a decade now.
However, some of the options aren’t available for the general public.
The NSW Government is now trying to expand the options for people who are homeless.

Can my property be used for other purposes?
Your property can be used as collateral for other kinds of property.
For example, if you rent a property, you can put your own money up to repay your mortgage or to buy property if you want to live in the same property with your partner.
Other types of collateral can be put up to buy an investment property.
For example, an insurance company can put up a deposit to buy your property, and when you sell your property it’s yours.
You can also buy a car, as long as you can afford to pay for it yourself.
What are the fees for home and residential property insurance?
There are three types of home and personal property insurers in New Zealand.
The first two are the main insurance companies, but there are also commercial insurance companies that provide personal property and residential mortgage insurance.
There are different fees for each of the insurance companies.
