What if my receipts burned up in the fire? What if I do not keep receipts?Return to FAQ Videos
If you suffered a loss of your personal property as a result of a fire, then whether or not you have receipts, you should endeavor to provide the insurance company with as much detail as you can regarding when you obtained the personal property, perhaps even how it was used, where it was in the house, if you have pictures of the personal property that was lost. The point is to be as accurate as possible with the insurance company about the personal property that was damaged or lost, and to give the insurance company as much information as you can. You may or may not have receipts, but as long as you’re giving the insurance company the information, you should be able to proceed with your claim. If you have any questions about lost receipts, please feel free to reach out to a qualified attorney.
