Frequently asked questions about fire damage

If a short circuit in one of your appliances caused a fire, this is covered by our home contents insurance and home insurance in most cases.

Suppose there has been a fire in your home. In many cases, the fire can be extinguished quickly, but you may have a lot of soot damage. The damage to possessions that are not fixed inside your home, such as a cupboard, sofa or chairs, is insured by home contents insurance. Soot damage to a glued-down wooden floor and damage to the walls is covered by the home insurance.

In the event of fire damage, no mandatory excess applies. If you have opted for a voluntary excess, we will deduct it from the amount you receive. Please read the terms and conditions through carefully. The policy schedule states whether you have a voluntary excess.

Damage caused by your wood stove is insured if the installation of the wood stove complies with existing guidelines. ABN AMRO Insurance will never reimburse damage caused by:

  • intentional damage, gross negligence or illegal activity by you
  • poor or overdue maintenance, wear, rot or rust
  • due to a construction fault of your home
