Types of claims surveyors can help with

As a property manager, you may be faced with a claim that has affected individual flats or units and the common parts too. Putting forward a building surveyor to assist with the entire claim – in the demises and in the common areas as well – will help to reassure the insurer that the claim is being handled expeditiously and accurately. That is why many insurers are content for the policyholder to use a surveyor familiar with them and the building. The surveyor’s cost will be paid for by the insurer, as part of the cost of the claim.

Especially for complex claims, a surveyor can bring in other professionals as required – such as a structural engineer. Who is better placed than a surveyor to close off a claim, confident that works have been completed to the required standard? The surveyor, acting in the best interests of the policyholder.

In a blocks of flats setting, the most common claim is escape of water – and the consequences can be disastrous for multiple apartments and the shared areas too. We can also help with fire, flood, storm damage and subsidence claims too. When a worrying crack appears, call us in first to assess the damage, helping you decide if an insurance claim can be made legitimately.

Most blocks of flats policies have ‘trace and access’ cover, so a surveyor can assist in tracing leaks in the first place, the cost of which can be covered by the building’s insurance policy. The quicker the problem is found, the cost of the claim is likely to be lower.

Our building surveyors have extensive experience of fire, water and subsidence claims, and even vehicular damage. Whether the building that has suffered the loss is contemporary or grade listed, residential or commercial, our insurance works services will fit the bill, wherever you are.
