House Insurance – New Zealand Consumer Protection
When you purchase house insurance, New Zealand consumer protections codes are there to see that the details of your policy are always available for you to see, and no provisions have been hidden from your view. Knowing the details of your insurance policy is a basic right, regardless of whether that policy covers your house, you car, or contents.
When purchasing house insurance, New Zealand homeowners can enjoy peace of mind knowing that New Zealand’s Fair Insurance Code is in place to protect their best interests. This code has been agreed to by all of the major insurance firms. It defines a set of minimum standards each company is expected to adhere to. The Code also outlines the responsibilities of a policyholder towards the provider of a policy. The Code therefore serves to encourage ethical practices in all transactions made between company and policyholder.
The Fair Insurance Code also provides the means of resolving claims disputes between the parties involved. The Insurance and Savings Ombudsman’s Office (ISO) will, when asked, negotiate claims disputes. The decision rendered by the ISO is final, unless one of the parties involved elects to take the case to court.
