Insurance Claim Case Study

Fire Damage To Listed Building

Fire Damage To Listed Building

The claim involved substantial damage to the building and contents of a listed building, the fire originated in the outbuildings spreading to the main structure.

The Insurer and their loss adjusters raised issues concerning policy liability as the property was unoccupied at the time of the fire and refused to pay the claim. We were able to prove although the building was empty the Insured had complied with the Insurers requirements for weekly inspections and had kept the property secure. After lengthy negotiations we were able to convince them the loss should be paid and their interpretation of the policy wording was incorrect.

A substantial settlement figure was secured enabling the Insured to refurbish the property.
