    For what it's worth (2 years late, but posting for other people's sake), I had similar experience (not with RAC) and complained to AFCA - https://www.afca.org.au/ - and that resolved in my favour

    My wife is a property manager of 15 odd years so has plenty of experience when it comes to insurance companies and how well they pay out.
    RAC does not fare well when it comes to landlords insurance.
    EBM on the otherhand are good.
    We use EBM on all our properties, have made probably half a dozen claims over the years for storm damage, never a drama with them paying.

    Maybe.
    And maybe when the house is trashed by worthless cunts the owner will be stung for repairs since it takes several weeks to get a court order to evict shit tenants who then destroy your asset with impunity. I am all for second goes but when it turns pear shaped the owner shouldnt be penalised.

    In my situation, my awesome tenant died unexpectedly. His son asked if he could take over the tenancy as he wanted to stay in the house where he had lived with his Dad. Unfortunately the son then went off the rails and got into drugs...….

    In terms of how badly the house got smashed up, I consider that I was lucky to get away with a few thousand dollars in repairs. (And the RAC found an excuse for every single claim)

    My nan found the same with RAC auto insurance.

    We get a call from ours, some bloke wanted to move in with our existing tenant in a property, something didn't smell right according to the agent, so she did a bit more research in to his application.
    Not even out of gaol [ jail? ] yet, long, long list of bad stuff including theft/violence/restraining orders/meth addiction and more.

    We said no.....I'm all for second chances and all that, but I will draw a line somewhere.
