Homeowners Insurance

Homeowners Insurance is a good additionunderline to the Mandatory Fire Insurance. Homeowners Insurance provides comprehensive protection against unexpected and sudden events that lead to property damage. Damage to real estate is often very costly, so it is good to know that Homeowners Insurance is available in the event of loss.

More About Homeowners Insurance

  • The insurance covers, among other things, damage due to water leakage from pipes, damage caused by burglary or attempted burglary, if windows are broken and if damage is caused by bad weather. The insurance also covers damage that occurs if stovetops or sanitary appliances break due to unexpected and sudden accidents.
  • The Homeowners Insurance does not cover furniture or movables that are in the property. Furnishings and other movables must be insured separately under the F-Plus Family Insurance or the Personal Possessions Insurance in the case of precious items.
  • If you have Homeowners Insurance and are considering selling your existing property and buying a new one, please be advised that Homeowners Insurance is not automatically transferred between properties you own. It is important to make sure that the new property has the insurance coverage you want.
  • If you are moving from an apartment to a detached house, we suggest you consider purchasing Homeowners Insurance. Homeowners' associations often have joint homeowners insurance for all the apartments in the building and people who are moving out of apartment buildings often do not realise the benefits of insuring their detached homes with Homeowners Insurance. Please contact us if anything is unclear and we will assist you.
