No. Upon applying fire insurance policy, the current market value of the properties should be accurately calculated for arriving at an adequate amount to be insured. The compensation payable after the fire outbreak shall be based on the current market value of the properties at the time of the outbreak, including depreciation, if any. If the amount insured is excessive, it will mean overpayment of unnecessary premium; if the amount insured is inadequate, the customer will only receive compensation based on the proportion between the insured amount and the aggregate value of the properties.
The procedures are simple; you only need to fill in an application form and mail or return it to any branch of Hang Seng Bank for handling.
