Fire The damage caused by fire, soot, smoke or fire extinguishing water, direct contact with lightning, explosion, including that of an explosive, or a piloted aircraft, its parts or cargo falling down is indemnified. Water accident The damage caused by water, wastewater or others liquids or steam discharged as a result of a breakage of the internal water supply, sewerage, heating or cooling system of the building or their parts; water or wastewater discharged as a result of a breakage of the internal rainwater drainage pipes of the building or their parts; water discharged as a result of a breakage of household appliances permanently connected to the internal water supply and sewerage system of the building and their parts; and water discharged from a fish tank is indemnified. The repair costs of the utilit system and pipeline of the insured building that caused the water accident are also indemnified to the extent of 1,000 euros. Burglary The damage caused by burglary, i.e. theft of property by breaking in, robbery or an act of vandalism, is indemnified. We also indemnify the expenses to be incurred for the restoration of the barriers of the building or parts thereof that have been broken or damaged in the course of a break-
in or robbery or an attempt thereof. The expenses on the exchange of locks and acquisition of new locks will be indemnified without applying the deductible if the key or code for opening the lock was removed from the possession of the policyholder or a person authorised by them during the burglary or robbery.
Vandalism The damage caused to the insured object by the intentional spoilage or destruction of the property by a third party is indemnified. The damage caused by the shattering of a glass surface of the building serving as the insured object is also indemnified without applying the deductible. The damage caused to the insured building due to the theft of its parts is also indemnified. Storm The damage caused by a storm; a tree or another object falling on the insured object as a result of a storm; hail or ridged ice is indemnified. A storm means wind with a speed of at least 18 meters per second. If the speed of the wind cannot be determined, storm means wind that caused damage to structures or objects near the place of insurance that were in impeccable condition. Storm damage also means the damage to the insured object that could have only been caused by a storm. Flood The damage caused to the insured object by a storm, precipitation or the flooding of a body of water is indemnified. Flood only means a natural flood caused by a storm, precipitation (including melting snow) or the flooding of a body of water. A natural flood means an extraordinary rise in the water level resulting in unusually large quantities of water that the ground and/or properly established drainage system (including drainage and sewerage system) cannot absorb. Rainwater We will indemnify for damage caused by water that seeped through the building structures. Indemnification covers damage sustained by interior decoration or household property as a result of the initial rainwater or meltwater seepage and not exceeding 3,000 euros, on the condition that there was no water seepage at the insured location during the last five years. Comprehensive
The damage caused to the insured object by an unexpected, sudden and unforeseeable event that is not provided in clauses 3.3 to 3.8 of the home insurance terms and conditions or precluded in the home insurance terms and conditions is indemnified. An insured event can, for example, be the breakage of objects as a result of a fall, mechanical malfunction of home appliances or a malfunction caused due to over-voltage or under voltage or the breakage of the utility systems. Liability
The damage arising from unexpected, sudden and
unforeseeable unlawful damage caused to a third party resulting in the obligation of the policyholder and/or their family member to compensate for such damage pursuant to legislation is indemnified. In addition to the damage caused, the legal costs required for fighting a claim and protecting the rights of the insured person are also indemnified if necessary. For example, an insured event could mean the damage caused by snow that fell from the roof of the insured building on a vehicle that is not yours, a water accident that started from the residential premises and damaged the property of the downstairs neighbours, a ball kicked into the neighbour’s window by your child, crashing into a pedestrian when riding a bike, or the event where the family’s pet bit a passer-by.
The rent of temporary housing and the expenses of moving there and back after an insured event that made the insured person’s home inhabitable are indemnified. Loss of rent is also indemnified if the insured residential premises had been leased but became inhabitable as a result of the insured event. The indemnity is paid until the home of the insured person is renovated or restored, but for no longer than 12 months.
