Fires can start unexpectedly in seconds and wreak havoc in a property within minutes. A fire in your home can have devastating consequences and this makes it even more important that you receive the best possible professional support. Your house is usually your biggest asset and when an incident occurs, we know that it is very upsetting and stressful. It can also be an upheaval for your whole family, including your pets. We can be there to provide you with specialist support and advice at a time when this is crucial to getting your property reinstated.
Damage to your commercial premises can cause severe interruption to your ability to operate and may even threaten the survival of the company. We can be there to provide you with the expertise and specialist support needed, so that you can concentrate on keeping the business running. We have experience of reinstating a variety of commercial premises including offices, factories and buy-to-let properties.
Whether it be a domestic or commercial fire claim, our aim from the outset is to get liability accepted as soon as possible so that emergency funding is secured.
We will assess the damage and produce a detailed schedule of works for submission to the loss adjuster.
Once approved, we then seek the services of a building contractor to carry out the repairs and oversee their successful completion.
Negotiations then take place to achieve the best settlement for you.
The works are only signed off when they have been completed to the required standard, incorporating your needs as well as can be reasonably expected and justified.
Fees & Info
Our services are normally free of charge to you, as they are paid for by your insurance company. Only in the very unusual event of the loss adjuster refusing to do this, would you be liable for payment of our professional fees. This would be known at an early stage, thus avoiding any hidden costs.
Not many people realize that they can employ a building surveyor to act on their behalf, but it is normally included in the detail of your insurance policy. The most important issue for you to think about is employing someone who has the knowledge and expertise to help you out when you need it most. Here at E-value8(UK) Ltd we believe we have those skills in place – assessing what needs to be done at every stage of the project and making sure that the works are carried out as soon as possible to a high specification.
At what point should you call us?
It’s potentially never too late to call us in. We can help in the immediate aftermath of the fire. Alternatively, if it’s some weeks since the claim was submitted, and you are experiencing problems, or if you are unhappy with the proposed settlement, we can step in and take over the negotiations.
We also specialise in resolving claims for insurers, loss adjusters and their advisors. We have experience of challenging cases, which may be considered a major loss and/ or involve unusual construction. Such claims require knowledge and expertise gained from operating in the insurance industry for a number of years.
