Severe weather causes catastrophic damage to many homes each year. Extensive damage claims often require certain expert assessments or professional mediators to settle the details. Insurance companies and homeowners can often find themselves at odds over damage claim assessments and payoff amounts.
What happens when homeowners and insurance companies cannot agree on a fair claim assessment amount to cover damages? Is the homeowner simply at the mercy of their insurance company? Florida homeowners have options to dispute the damage claims made by property insurance adjusters. Beryl Project Engineering is certified to offer insurance appraisal and windstorm umpire services throughout Florida.
Do You Need an Insurance Appraiser or Umpire in Tampa?
An Insurance Appraiser determines the value of your home and its contents and contributes to setting your homeowner’s insurance costs. Their expertise is valuable because an accurate appraisal prevents you from being over- or under-insured. They also serve an important function in the event your home suffers damage and you need to file a claim. If you disagree with the value of the property loss estimate from the insurance adjuster, you have the right to hire an independent Certified Insurance Appraiser.
In the event that your Certified Insurance Appraiser and the Insurance Company Adjuster cannot agree on an amount to accurately represent your damage losses, a Property Insurance Umpire is contracted to join the negotiations. He or she is an impartial third party who can examine both damage appraisals and decide on the final settlement.
The expertise and complete impartiality of your independent Insurance Appraiser and Property Insurance Umpire are very important. These two professionals play key roles in determining the actual amount of money the insurance company will pay out for your damage claims. This is not a role for inexperienced or unethical inspectors.
