Policyholders many times wonder when they are eligible to receive reimbursement above ACV in their claim?
ACV is the Actual Cash Value that is initially agreed upon in the claim. There is a holdback which is a known figure to the policyholder. Generally, the policy states this figure must be incurred. As explained in the attached White Paper, incurred begins when a contract is signed with a builder to repair the property.
Hence, holdback money should be released upon providing a valid contract with a licensed builder.
This is the scenario in the best of circumstances. As a note, even though this is the definition for this wording, many times Insurance Companies do not follow this thought process.
It is helpful to always know your rights and responsibilities.
Public Adjusters are licensed by the state and well versed in the area of claim recovery and can assist with this and other issues relating to your claim.
Over the years we have encountered future clients who state, “Oh the contractor said they will assist with my claim. They will talk to the Insurance Company and negotiate figures”
This is deemed as the UPPA — Unauthorized Practice of Public Adjusting and a ruling was upheld in Texas pertaining to this act. Read further a blog presented by NAPIA, (National Association of Public Insurance Adjusters), specifically spelling out how this ruling was reached and the ramifications of such practice.
Policyholders always want to be informed by the individuals representing them, what their representation involves. Always remember, only licensed Public Insurance Adjusters and lawyers are able to represent you with insurance property claims.

Many times we are asked the question, What if I forgot to mention something in my application?
According to our research via FC&S, The National Underwriter Company, the application is the standard by which the policy was written. If you do not disclose completely your situation, this is cause for voiding the policy, and gives the insurance company an out to pay for a loss.
Remember the obligation is on the potential policyholder to disclose all information. If it is discovered you misled the insurance company, that policy is null and void. Lesson learned, disclose any and all information when applying for property insurance.
