Property insurance can be a real lifesaver, but it can also be hard to claim. With our help, you’ll be able to provide your insurance company with a detailed account of the damage and the repair work required, improving your chances of getting the payout to which you’re entitled.

Fire insurance claims

If your property has suffered fire, we’ll carry out a full survey of the damage the flames and smoke inflicted. This survey will go deep, analysing the structural integrity of your building and assessing how much needs to be replaced or rebuilt. Our experienced surveyors can then assess how much such repairs would cost, and how long they might take, giving you an accurate repair estimate to take to your insurers.

Subsidence insurance claims

Subsidence can wreck a building, and it can come completely out of nowhere. We’ll survey the damage inflicted so far, paying particular attention to any structural damage. Our subsidence experts can then examine the ground around and below your building, identifying and estimating the extent of any further risks. Our quantity surveyors can then provide a detailed repair estimate for your insurers.

Property insurance valuations

Want to keep your insurance premium to a minimum? We offer accurate and detailed insurance inspections, estimating the value of the property and the cost of rebuilding it, should the worst occur. We’ll also assess the likelihood of subsidence, flooding or other environmental damage. If your property is at risk, your premium may go up, but identifying those risks now should make it easier to make a successful claim in future.
