Unauthorized Practice of Public Adjusting

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.

Property Insurance Claim — 5 things to Watch For

Recently we have received  many phone calls from insureds who have suffered property claims but are experiencing a situation that is occurring more and more.

Today a call came in and the man mentioned:

  1. He lived in an area where a weather disaster struck months ago. A sales person representing an”adjuster’ rang his doorbell and said he could help him with his roof problem.
  2. He was told that the adjuster would contact him
  3. The adjuster would bring in his “sister” company to write the estimate.
  4. It is recommended the insured use the sister company
  5. This adjuster was going to charge an inflated fee for the services, and also made it known that this fee (25%) was due whether the insured used his contractor or not.  When these sister companies complete repair for the property  basically this may be considered double dipping, or kickback payments.

You always want to make sure:

  • The Public Adjuster you hire has a current license in the State.
  • The Public Adjuster, their firm, has solid real reviews.  (Not just Joe Smith “they did a good job”)
  • The Public Adjuster is charging a fair fee for their services. Typical percentages range from 10 – 15%.
  • The Public Adjuster may disclose their relationship with other companies they plan to bring in to submit your claim, you may want to use caution when you are made aware of this.

Dryer Fire Prevention

34% of home clothes dryer fires is failure to clean them.

You think I clean out the lint catcher every time I put a new load in, I am cleaning my dryer.  You’d be surprised that is NOT ENOUGH.

No matter how good your dryer vent is connected, lint still collects on the inside of the dryer. (view pictures)

Once a year it is a good idea to have a service technician take apart the machine completely.  They take off the front of the dryer, pull out the drum and then can vacuum the inside of all the collected lint.

It may be the best $125 you spend this year.  Fire prevention is important and this is a little thought about way to prevent dryer fires.

Denial of Coverage due to misrepresentation

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.
