FOR PROPERTY CLAIMS:
May we also suggest ways to protect your property to prevent further damage and to ensure that the claims process and reimbursement for costs goes smoothly.
Document the damages. Before you begin cleanup, photograph or record the damage and include the images with your claim. It’s a good idea to visually document your home and belongings before a loss, so you have “before” and “after” images when filing a claim.
Make temporary repairs so your home is safe and livable. While you’re waiting for your claim to be processed, you may make temporary repairs. But review your policy for guidelines about what’s covered and be sure to save your repair receipts. Don’t start permanent, major repairs or renovations until your claim is complete and your compensation is confirmed.
Save your receipts especially if you have to move temporarily. If the damage to your residence is so extensive that you must relocate for a while, your policy may help cover those costs. Save hotel and restaurant receipts – and discuss with your agent how to submit them for reimbursement.
Hire only licensed and bonded contractors – and ask for their full contract details. Save those receipts too!
