Frequently asked questions

Making claims clear

At AXA, we have a responsibility to be as clear as possible to our customers. So we want to explain some common situations where a landlord insurance claim might not be paid – to help ensure this doesn’t happen to you.

We may refuse to pay your claim if:

  • You don’t make a ‘fair presentation of risk’ to us (this means you need to tell us everything that could influence our decision to insure you – and applies prior to the start of your policy, if anything changes during your insurance period, and before your renewal)
  • You don’t tell us of changes in tenancy or occupation within the property
  • Damage to your property is caused by a gradual deterioration or wear and tear
  • Your property isn’t kept in a good state of repair or damage has occurred over a period of time due to lack of maintenance
  • You don’t comply with the policy conditions.
