HOMEOWNERS covered under the Housing Authority's group housing insurance policy are now having their properties re-valued and a renewal of the policy.
A total of 3306 homes were scheduled for inspection.
Seventy per cent have been completed, a statement from the authority said.
It said that 990 homes remain to be re-valued, which also included homes under the Village Housing Scheme in the Western and Northern divisions.
"The progress of the inspections is on schedule and is expected to be completed by the end of September, after which Housing Authority will renew the insurance policy that will ultimately benefit all of our homeowners," authority CEO Alipate Naiorosui said.
He said that as part of this inspection process, the authority also used the opportunity to identify breaches of lease conditions such as subletting without consent or unapproved extensions.
It also updates and corrects homeowners' contact details and identifies land only customers who have not built within the required two year period, he adds.
Homeowners can choose to pay for the valuations fees up-front or have these charged to their accounts and also have the option to get a copy of their updated market valuation reports, the authority stated.
It advised customers who had paid off home loan accounts or were about to pay off their accounts to re-insure their properties as a precaution.
A valid insurance policy with the appropriate cover can assist with rebuilding to the actual replacement value of the home should an unexpected event occur.
Homeowners are covered under a group housing insurance policy that provides protection against fire, flood, cyclones or earthquake damage.
The inspection and re-valuation that is conducted every two years ensures the homes' current market and replacement value has been correctly captured.
