Once we have agreed an estimate, we can settle the claim. We will send you a cheque, made payable to your contractor. This way, you can hold on to the money until they have completed the works to your satisfaction. If you are using one of our suppliers then we will deal with the invoices directly.
There is an excess applicable to most claims. Whether you use a contractor of your own choice or use one of our suppliers, we will deduct the excess from the first payment we issue. It is your responsibility to make arrangements for payment of the excess to the contractor.
We will stay in touch with you throughout the claim, ensuring that it is reviewed regularly and concluded as soon as possible.
