If your home is covered by EQCover, then some of your land is also covered.

What is and isn't covered

EQCover for land is limited to land that is within your property boundary – and includes:

  • the land under your home and outbuildings (eg, shed or garage)
  • the land within eight metres of your home and outbuildings
  • the land under or supporting your main accessway, from the boundary up to 60 metres from your home (but not the driveway surfacing).

EQCover also provides some cover for:

  • bridges and culverts within the above areas, and
  • some retaining walls that are necessary to support the home, outbuildings or insured land.
