Frequently asked questions about water damage

If you have water damage in your home caused by heavy rainfall or leakage, this is covered by our home contents insurance and home insurance in most cases. However, we do check whether there has been any negligence.

Suppose your floor is flooded due to a flood or broken pipe. Damage to possessions that are not fixed inside your home, such as a closet, sofa or rug, is insured by the home contents insurance. Water damage to a glued-down wooden floor and damage to the walls is covered by the home insurance.

In the event of damage caused by rainfall or overflowing water, an excess of €220 applies through ABN AMRO home contents insurance. If you took out your ABN AMRO home contents insurance policy before 2006, you do not have a policy excess for this. If you took out the policy between 2006 and 2019, you have an excess of €225. 

If you have opted for a voluntary excess, you will pay it on top of the mandatory excess (if applicable). Please read the terms and conditions through carefully. The policy will specify the amount of your excess.
