Lifestyle block insurance FAQs
At Tower, we define a lifestyle block as:
- a block of land with a house and other assets that is less than 10 hectares in size, and
- the owners earn less than $10,000 gross income off the land from any activities associated with the lifestyle block.
If your property doesn't meet the criteria in this definition, then it can't be insured under Tower's Lifestyle block policy.
If your property has any of the following:
- Additional land, and that land can be used to graze stock or grow anything that may be sold for profit,
- Outbuildings, like a haybarn, woolshed, or stable,
- Plant machinery or vehicles like tractors,
- Additional items like electric power lines, telephone poles and cables,it can't be insured under Tower's House policy.
