Aussie Home Inventories - Home Inventory - Australia 2 FeedJournal Basic The Slippery Slide To Under-Insurance By Aussie Home Inventories Submitted at 2/17/2008 5:24:04 PM • Are You On The Slippery Slide To Under-Insurance? • Would You Know You Were, Assuming You Are Correctly Insured In The First Place? • Why Are There So Many Australians Under-Insured And How Did They Become Under-Insured? This article will supply answers to the above questions creating an awareness of the under-insurance problem in Australia. Information allowing the realisation and elimination of under-insurance from the insurance policies covering home contents of home owners in Australia. Most Australian home owners assume they are correctly insured and therefore never check to see if they are not. There are many Australians every year finding it hard to face up to the fact their insurance cover was not sufficient, at the time of making a claim to replace all of their home and contents. A lot of Aussie home owners simply believe there is a 'system' in place to stop underinsurance affecting them. When Aussie Home Inventories asked some of their clients to explain what this 'system' was, it was often reported as, “Well the insurance company has all the information and they will take care of it. After all, that is what we are paying them for!” If there is a 'system' in place, then it must be failing as there are so many Australians still under-insured? The answer simply could be home owners never check their content cover correctly, because they do not realise they have to and importantly they are not being reminded to. How often does an insurance company at renewal time, ask for the value of contents purchased throughout the year? Some of the known facts about underinsurance are: • The insurance companies know there is an under-insurance problem. • The home owner is not being made aware they may have underinsurance. • The home owner is not aware of how to eliminate under-insurance. • Any loss due to under-insurance will be the responsibility of the home owner. Most home owners only find out about under-insurance when filing a claim. To find out at this time can mean: • You are going to receive a loss! • Your home and lifestyle is not going to recover as quickly as it could have! Home owners if made aware of under -insurance, would check their contents value and correct the insurance policy. Home owners NEED to be made aware of underinsurance! If insurance companies assumed everyone to be underinsured unless proven, an increase of correct home content cover would result. A small amount of extra marketing from the insurance companies would kick start the process. The proof of content value being supplied by the home owner. More correct policies, less disputes, easier claims. With a system as fine tuned like this, we can only hope for bigger discounts on the premiums! When anyone makes a claim the last thing they want to here is the word under-insurance! The timing for that under-insurance word is not good, as the customer has just occurred a loss to their family home! “If we could make sure under-insurance would not affect us we would,” is what Aussie Home Inventories hears from prospective clients. The only way to keep on top of the under-insurance problem is to take control of the value of home contents. Every Australian home owner needs to spend time accurately working out what the contents in the home are worth. Time spent now on evaluating content worth, will save time and money over time! • Could you supply a value for new contents purchased last year? • If you cannot answer this question immediately, how long would it take to find the information? • Do you have this value recorded from your last insurance cover renewal? If you are not aware of your home content value, then it is correct to say the insurance company is not either! The insurance company has given you some help though, they have added a 5-10% increase to your contents cover renewal. What kind of household is this 5-10% increase suitable for? Yours or Mr. Average! • Do you remember what the increase in the home contents cover, was for your last paid premium? • Was it stated or was there just a renewal figure? • Were you asked to input your new content purchases for the year? OK if we assume the insurance company is making an assumption as to what you have spent, then what happens when you have spent more? There is a lot of assuming here by everyone and we know where that leads us! Is this insurance policy not meant to be covering everything owned in the home? These are hard earned belongings and items of sentimental value, souvenirs of your life! It is time to sit down and try to work out what is covered and what is not! The TIME IS NOW! Everybody thinks they are covered, but what is far more better is knowing for sure! When you send those dollars out of the door to the insurance company you want assurance you are going to collect TOTAL REPLACEMENT FOR ANY LOSS! After all that is what the insurance cover is for! Are the insurance companies trying hard enough to find out the basic facts? If only they asked for information at policy renewal time such as: • Enter the amount spent on contents last year. • List the items and values. This would make the insurance companies life easier, allowing them to work out if the content cover has been increased enough and looking at the separate items, add extra cover types if needed for special items such as artworks, jewellery, computers etc. Remember it is the home owners responsibility in all cases to have the correct information, to have all the details and supply all the details to the insurance company. An insurance company asking for information at renewal time would help everyone. An answer to why there are so many under-insured home owners in Australia could simply be, unawareness! There would be few people aware of the fact and ignoring it, as they may as well not pay the insurance cover premium! To be aware you must be prepared and that means working out values for content cover, by taking stock of home contents. This means all of the contents in the home, garage, basement, storage, loft and sheds need to have a value added! Not an easy task for many homeowners! If this process sounds to daunting a solution is to use a Home Inventory Service. Professionals that take on the job, remove the worry, the doubt and produce a simple solution. This solution being an accurate, complete Digital Photographic Home Inventory of home contents. Information needed to find out what the home contents are worth! The next step is to inform the insurance company of the newly revised home contents value. Advising them that a professional home inventory has been carried out recording all the home contents, validating ownership and presence, on a specific date. This home inventory is easily 'on hand' at all times if so required. Ask the insurance company for any discounts due to the home inventory been performed. The correct cover for the contents of the home has now been reached supplying peace of mind for many home owners. Staying away from the slippery slide into under-insurance means keeping aware of home content additions and adding these to the inventory. Let us assume a home has contents of $30000. A year later the renewal arrives and the policy has increased by 10% of the content value covered, ie by $3000 to $33000. Checking the list of newly purchased items reports $4850. Simply going ahead and paying the premium without adjustments equals under-insurance of 4850 - 3000 = 1850! The correct value of the cover should be amended to $34850. Not many home owners that Aussie Home Inventories has come across even bother to do this easy step! The information needs to be supplied to the insurance company to stop this slide into under-insurance. Not to forget that some of these items may be breaking the maximum cover per item! Clarify the large expenses with the insurance company, especially those that fall under types such as art, jewellery, computers etc. Once a home inventory has been completed, it is easy to stay away from under-insurance by keeping the inventory up to date. A Home Inventory Service will be able to do this for by offering an Annual Update Program. Details are forwarded to the Home Inventory Service where they will supply you and the insurance company with the updated inventory. Aussie Home Inventories surveyed more than 100 people, asking them if they knew what there home content purchases were for the last year. Most replied with the question, “What would they need to know that for! When the same people were then asked if they had contents cover and if they had paid the premium last year the answer was generally YES! The next question asked was, How does your insurance company know what you spent on new purchases, because remember they added the amount to your premium renewal! Next there was silence! The crystal ball at the insurance company has not worked for some time now! Remember there is only one way to reduce and eliminate under-insurance covering home contents. Follow these easy steps: • Workout and record your home contents worth. • Keep a record of the years new content purchases. • Update you insurance company with these details at renewal time. By following the above you will eliminate the chance of underinsurance and keep all items insured for their correct amount, under the correct type of cover. You will also be prepared for loss due to disaster, emergency or theft. You chances of recovery will be more speedily, returning your lifestyle to a level at which you are accustomed. Help your family and friends to avoid the slippery slide to under-insurance by forwarding them this article or the following questions: How Well Does Your Insurance Company Look After You? • When you purchase household goods throughout the year, do you add this added value to your premium? • Does your insurance supplier ask you for the details of these household goods at premium renewal time? • What is the annual increase in premium made up of? • Are you aware of the severity of under-insurance problem in Australia? • Has your insurance supplier made you aware that you may be underinsured? • If you suspect you may be underinsured how & when are you going to correct your cover? • If you suffered a 100% loss and were only 65% covered could you replace the missing 35%? • If you have corrected this underinsurance, do you have an up to date inventory? • When are you going to start your home inventory? • If you have an home inventory is it stored in a fire data safe or outside of your home?

Adequate insurance cover is only available if the insurance supplier has the correct information. In other words a complete record or inventory of what you own. It may be said that often we assume that by some magic the insurance company, has peeked into our home and calculated the added purchases, that we have made over the last year. If you were create a list of these purchases, would they all be included the insurance premium? Most people when calculating these purchases have found themselves to be unknowingly under-insured! Not knowing this, they would have simply paid the 510% increase in annual premium, thinking all their household goods were covered! What a relief to know otherwise before a claim is made! Climate change is the word on everyone's lips nowadays, with the media reporting an endless supply of disaster after disaster. Australia has had it's fair share of bushfires & floods over the last year. With the increase and severity of these natural disasters, it is no wonder that the insurance companies are starting to make the task of proving ownership the responsibility of the homeowner, before a claim is paid! It makes common sense if you are paying an insurance premium, that you know you are covered correctly and are going to receive a payout at the level you expect! Otherwise why are you paying the premium? Proof of ownership is easily demonstrated by recording item descriptions, serial / model numbers, receipts & warranties backed up by photographs and appraisals. Spending time NOW to create a home inventory is a smart idea! Helping to protect yourself and relieve the trauma of loss through disaster, accident and theft! In today's fast paced world the quickest and most accurate way to create this Throughout your working life you will have worked hard towards your retirement, building assets and accumulating personal property. You will have : • Insured your property & contents against loss through natural disaster, accident or theft. • Prepared a will in readiness for asset reallocation. You no doubt feel that you have done your very best in preparing yourselves, having insurance cover and a will in place. Ask yourself these questions : Are you 100% sure, your property & content insurance cover is enough? • Are you aware of your net worth and importantly are your heirs aware of the value and significance, of what they will inherit? To answer these questions with certainty you need to know what you are truly worth, with a 100% accuracy! A simple way of finding this out, is to take inventory of what you own. This information will allow you to know if your insurance cover is correct and update your will. Have You Correct Insurance Cover? Not having the correct insurance cover is often termed under-insurance and is like having termites! Most Australian households discover this under-insurance after the damage has been done, when making a claim, never knowing it existed! Allowing yourself on the other hand to stay one step ahead is not difficult. For those of you that are still working, you can hopefully cover the cost of loss over the forthcoming years. If you are a retiree though, it is going to be more difficult to cover that loss. Does is not make sense to be prepared? So that personal asset record, is to perform what is known as a digital photographic home inventory. This task is one of the many that a home inventory business can offer you. Getting the inventory done accurately, speedily and saving you the time! The home inventory allows you to realise and eliminate under-insurance and creates an awareness of your net worth. Increasing Your Heirs Awareness Of Their Inheritance. • Are your heirs aware of the value they will inherit? • Are your heirs aware of the the importance and significance of what they will inherit? These questions are crucial especially when the family has heirlooms, cherished objects and other items of significance involved. 



Issue #11 for AHI 7/10/2008 - 9/4/2008 feedjournal.com When A Picture Says A Thousand Words By Aussie Home Inventories (Home Inventory Service - Australia) Submitted at 9/1/2008 3:57:00 AM Landlords and tenants have rights and responsibilities, with regards to the rental of property. To create a fair set of rules for landlords and tenants, along with introducing legislative requirements for the 'written tenancy agreement', the Residential Tenancies Act commenced on 30th October 1989. This agreement consists of two parts, part 1 relates to the 'Terms Of The Agreement', and part 2 relates to a 'Property Condition Report', known as a 'PCR'. The Property Condition Report is simply an inventory of the property, taken prior to the start of tenancy, noting the condition of the property. Aussie Home Inventories are specialists in the area of documenting property and contents and are offering landlords, tenants, lodgers and students the opportunity to have a Property Condition Report compiled. They prepare a concise Property Condition Report which details the condition of the property, room by room, noting any inclusions or dilapidations. The landlord & tenant, and in cases where the property is managed, the agent, all receive a copy of this property condition report. The tenant may add additional comments and must return the condition report to the landlord / agent within seven days of the start of lease. The original report and the report returned by the tenant are both then used at the end of a tenancy to ensure the property is returned in the same condition, with consideration given to 'fair wear and tear' accepted. The Property Condition Report usually comprises of a written description accompanied by photographs or video when requested. Information on the process of tenancy, with respect to bond lodgement / refund, property condition reports, inspections and 'fair wear and tear, is easily explained in a download called Tenancy Tips, supplied by the Tenants Union, ACT. Please refer to your own individual states Tenants Assistance Organisation for advice. New South Wales - Tenants Organisation. Aussie Home Inventories supplies independent Property Condition Reports that can save landlords and tenants considerable time and money in the event of a dispute, or avoid the dispute in the first case. At tribunal hearings, photographic evidence is more commonly supporting claims and disputes, being supplied as evidence of property condition. If you are managing a property and would like a professional independent Property Condition Report, then call Aussie Home Inventories for assistance. Aussie Home Inventories- Home Inventory Service - Australia 2 Burned Fingers By Aussie Home Inventories (Home Inventory Service - Australia) Submitted at 8/21/2008 8:02:00 PM Suffering a loss of property is understandably a major trauma for most people. It is during the time of recovery, that people wish they had done more in the task of preparation. To prepare not just their property, but themselves for the outcome and recovery. When preparation can make a difference, it is often ignored or put off until it is to late, as it is not seen as important enough, at that time. People may be aware of recent burglaries, but do not get around to fixing the security system, until after the break-in. Many home owners are unaware they are underinsured, until they make a claim, thus any loss not covered is at the property owners expense. In preparation for loss, it always pays to have a property inventory where property and contents are fully recorded and documented. This results in more accurate claims and the chance of faster, more frequent theft recovery. Aussie Home Inventories is seeking information from individuals whom realise they could have done more, to be better prepared. If you have suffered a loss through natural disaster, emergency or theft, they would like to hear from you. Of special interest is information that involves: • Finding out you were under-insured at claim time. • The lack of documentation that could have assisted with theft recovery. • Not having all the required documentation for the insurance supplier. Information can be easily forwarded to their offices via email, or they can be contacted directly. All submitted information will be used anonymously to compile a list of reasons, why people need to be more prepared, learning from the examples of why people did not. The data will be used to compile articles, that will be posted on Aussie Home Inventories websites. This is a place to share your stories, to let others learn, to encourage them to get prepared. If you thought you were prepared and found you were not, Aussie Home Inventories calls this the 'Burned Fingers' syndrome, they would especially like to receive your information.

Would A Faster & Accurate Claims Process, Allow You To Reduce Costs & Increase Client Retention? Faster claims and client retention, are just two of the benefits from having insurance policies, supported by accurate documentation of property and contents. Clients with accurate inventories of property and contents are hard to find. Clients have many reasons for not taking inventory, or keeping them up to date. As an insurance supplier, you may have already tried informing your clients of: • DIY Home Inventories. • Home Inventory Software. • On-Line Inventories. These are all good methods of taking inventory. The problem is, they all suffer when clients report reasons for not taking inventory as: • Not Having The Time. • Too Difficult. • Not Having The Necessary Skills. • Lack Of Recording Equipment Or Computers. The result is, most households have no inventory. The PDS, [The Rules Of The Game], supplied with all policies is often too complex for the average policy holder. Often ignored and not looked at until claim time, when of course it is too late for the client. These above failings mean that clients have: • Little Knowledge Of The Policy. • The Chance Of Being Under-Insured. • An Increase In Problems At Claim Time. • A False Sense Of Protection Can The System Be Improved If The Client Has An Inventory That Is Professionally Recorded, By A Home Inventory Service? An inventory that is accurate, and easily forwarded after a loss to the authorities or you, the insurance supplier. A solution that offers the client: • The Elimination Of All The Reasons For Not Taking Inventory. • An Accurate Record Of Property. • The Knowledge That The Insurance Cover Is Correct.

The importance of marking property cannot be understated. An inventory of property forwarded to the authorities, as soon as possible after the theft, and the prior invisible marking of your items, with an ID number, is the best solution to maximise theft recovery, of your hard earned possessions. The authorities routinely use UV light, when examining stolen goods. Each year, property worth hundreds of thousands of dollars is recovered. There is a problem though, • 94% Cannot Be Returned To Its Rightful Owner, Due To NO Identification Mark. Increase your chances of recovering your property if stolen, by invisibly marking your valuables with a UV Marker Pen. Authorities and insurance companies encourage the marking of property & contents, with a Drivers Licence Number. The mark left by a UV Marker Pen in ONLY seen under UV light. If you are invisibly marking your valuables, it makes sense to also have the ability to check the invisible mark periodically. For this task you will need a UV LED Torch. Aussie Home Inventories has UV Marker Pens& UV LED Torches available for purchase Australia wide. Visit the Inventory Products page, of their Home Inventory Service website for more information.
