    Hi,
    I have a normal double-story house with 4 tenants upstairs and 4 downstairs (none are related).
    The property is certified as complying with all building codes.
    Is there an Insurer that can be recommended for such a scenario?

    Thx very much,
    John

    Hi,
    It is not a boarding house.

    8 non-related parties sounds like a boarding house.

    No one will touch it if it doesn't have approval as a boarding house ie >5 unrelated persons

    The arrangement is long term for the tenants. It is not a temp arrangement like a boarding house.

    Anyway, can anyone else suggest an Insurer I could try?

    Thx,
    JB

    Try Elders insurance. I have a property which some insurers would not touch but spoke to an Elders broker (in Adelaide) who got it placed with an insurance Co.
