3407. Property insurance; proofs of loss; notice of loss. (a) The failure of any person insured against loss or damage to property under any contract of insurance, issued or delivered in this state or covering property located in this state, to furnish proofs of loss to the insurer or insurers as specified in such contract shall not invalidate or diminish any claim of such person insured under such contract, unless such insurer or insurers shall, after such loss or damage, give to such insured a written notice that it or they desire proofs of loss to be furnished by such insured to such insurer or insurers on a suitable blank form or forms. If the insured shall furnish proofs of loss within sixty days after the receipt of such notice and such form or forms, or within any longer period of time specified in such notice, such insured shall be deemed to have complied with the provisions of such contract of insurance relating to the time within which proofs of loss are required. Neither the giving of such notice nor the furnishing of such blank form or forms by the insurer shall constitute a waiver of any stipulation or condition of such contract, or an admission of liability thereunder.

(b) If any contract of insurance issued or delivered in this state, covering loss of or damage to property by fire provides that the insured give immediate notice, in writing, to the insurer, of any loss or damage, it shall be sufficient compliance if immediate written notice is given, by or on behalf of the insured, to any licensed agent of the insurer in this state, with particulars sufficient to identify the insured and the property insured under such contract and to notify the insurer of the time and place of such loss or damage.
