On Monday, March 11, 2024, the Legal Affairs Committee will hold a public hearing on a CDU/CSU motion on natural hazard insurance (20/8732). Among other things, the CDU/CSU parliamentary group calls for insurance contract law to ensure “that in new business, homeowners’ insurance is only offered with natural hazard insurance that can be opted out of after being informed of the consequences”. In addition, all homeowners’ insurance policies in existing business should be extended to include natural hazard insurance on a cut-off date, the proposal continues. It should be possible to opt out within a certain period of time and after being informed of the consequences.

DKKV board member Prof. Dr. Reimund Schwarze will take part in the meeting. Click here for the livestream.
