PART B: LANDLORD HOUSE INSURANCE FROM TAPI
Partnership with Open
Tapi is the promoter of certain general insurance products of Open Insurance Ltd (NZ Company Number 7969816) (Open).
Insurance policies are sold and administered by Open, as an agent of Tower Limited (NZ Company Number 143050) the insurance underwriter.
Insurance policy information
Any information about insurance products on our Website is general information only and does not take into account your individual needs, objectives or financial situation.
You should carefully read the important documents, like the relevant policy wording, available within the Tapi app and website, to help you decide if a Tapi insurance product is right for you.
The policy wording contains detailed information about what Tapi insurance policies cover and what they don’t, and explains how Open manages insurance claims.
Tapi will connect you to Open’s insurance portal (Open Portal), which will provide you with pricing for insurance policy offers, as well as issue policy certificates of insurance and any other relevant policy documentation to eligible purchasers or holders of cover.
Upon insurance purchase, Open provides a copy of the policyholder’s Certificate of Currency to Tapi, to allow for Tapi to provide its scope of services.
Insurance customer support and making an insurance claim
Tapi is the insurance promoter for certain insurance products sold and administered by Open. Our role enables prospective insurance applicants to connect with Open and, subject to eligibility, purchase Tapi-branded insurance products.
Tapi is not a party to the issuing of any insurance policy. If you buy a Tapi-branded insurance policy sold by Open, your policy agreement is between you and Open, which acts as an agent of the insurer, Tower Limited.
Tapi makes no representations as to the fitness for purpose of any policy offered or issued by Open, and does not provide any form of financial advice in relation to the insurance covers promoted.
Other than liability which cannot be excluded by law, Tapi bears no responsibility or liability to you or any third parties in relation to any insurance premiums, claims, loss, damages and any expenses that arise in connection with any insurance policy sold or administered by Open or any insured or claimed loss event.
Tapi receives a commission from Open for each policy sold (both at its inception and any renewal) resulting from our promotional activity. From time to time, we may separately pay commissions to our personnel and independent property management agents, who provide us with introductions to potential insurance clients who go on to purchase a policy.
