After flooding

Loss assessing

When you suffer a loss as a result of a flooding event, your immediate concern is to limit the damage to your property. Complining a negotiating a claim, whatever its size, is not always as straight forward as you think.

  • Examine your insurance cover
  • Call your Insurance company
  • You may want to call loss assessing experts to handle your claim on your behalf (There are a number of companies who specialise in loss adjusting)
  • Call a reputable tradesman to make emergency repairs
  • Write down everything that has happened, along with times and dates
  • Collect all receipts for emergency work or other remedial repairs
  • If your possessions have been damaged, take photographs - it is important evidence. It may not always be practical to keep them.
