Care to be taken

It is very important that the Policy Holder accurately inform the Insurer about the specific conditions of the risk in question, namely: Year of construction/reconstruction, state of conservation, construction materials of the building, existence or not of safety measures, accident history and other relevant information.

All this information determines the acceptance or not of the risk and the premium to be practiced by the Insurer, in case of omission or adulteration of the information relative to the risk and in case it has a relevant impact on the risk assessment, the Insurer may, in accordance with the Insurance Contract Law, decline the claim.

It is the responsibility of the Policyholder to indicate the capital to be insured.

The definition of the capital to be insured for the basic coverages of the policy is as follows:

  • Buildings - The value of the insured capital must correspond to the market cost of the respective reconstruction, taking into account the type of construction or other factors that may influence that cost or the land registry value (in the case of buildings for expropriation or demolition). With the exception of the value of the land, all elements must be taken into consideration when determining the insured capital, including the proportional value of the common parts.
  • Furniture and furnishings - The insured sum should correspond to the cost of replacing the goods at their new value. 
  • Goods - The sum insured must correspond to the current purchase price for the Insured or, in the case of products manufactured by the Insured, to the value of the materials transformed and/or incorporated, plus the cost of manufacture.
  • Equipment used for the insured activity - The insured sum should correspond to the new cost, minus the depreciation inherent to its use and condition (the Client may opt to insure the equipment for the new replacement value of the insured goods, in which case the sum insured should correspond to the new replacement value).

Note: Should the Client choose to take out complementary cover for Machinery Breakdown, the capital to be insured must correspond to the new value, that is, its current market purchase cost.

It should be noted that the optional cover for business losses only guarantees losses suffered as a result of interruption or reduction of the activity of the insured company as a direct consequence of a claim compensable under the coverages contracted in the basic multi-risk policy: Fire, Mechanical Action of Lightning Strikes and Explosion, Storms, Floods, Water Damage, Aircraft Crashes and Crossing the Sound Barrier, Shock or Impact of Land Vehicles and/or Animals, Strikes, Riots and Alterations of Public Order, Acts of Vandalism or Malicious Acts.

Machine Breakdown cover can also be taken out under Operating Losses (in industry this cover is a very important risk management tool, since a factory may be forced to interrupt production as a result of a serious machine breakdown, interrupting the entire production chain and causing financial losses).

As a rule, the Operating Loss Cover has a 3-day excess and Companies may opt for a compensation limit of 3, 6, 9 or 12 months.
