How are my Fine Arts Covered in my Insurance Claim?

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Fine Art to one policyholder may not be the same for another.  Questions always arise how are my collectibles, fine arts treated in my insurance claim.  Below please find an analysis by The National Underwriter Company regarding this issue.

Highlights

Once it is determined whether an object is a fine art, it must be determined how the property should be insured.  There are sixteen named perils, and if one of those does not damage the property, there is no coverage.

There are special limits, most do not apply to true fine arts.  Coins have a special limit, as does silverware, gold ware, platinum ware including tea sets, gold silver and platinum, although some may not actually be fine arts.

The best option is to schedule the property into the homeowners policy with the Scheduled Personal Property Endorsement.

BEWARE — Solicitations from Unlicensed Public Adjusters and Repair Schemes

It is that time of year here in Arizona, monsoon season is in full swing.  Natural disasters are a normal occurrence over the summertime and consumers should be on their toes.

Here is an recent article dated July 12, 2018, released by the Idaho Department of Insurance, making the public aware of unlicensed individuals who are acting as public insurance adjusters for losses from hail storms.  Different state, same issue.  Public needs to be aware of individuals they hire to represent them with insurance claims.

This article points out an interesting situation that everyone should be aware of.

“Public adjusters often have mutual relationships with contractors, and may even be compensated by contractors  who are performing work in conjunction with damages caused by the insured loss; however, any compensation or financial interest must be disclosed by the public adjuster in writing to you as the policyholder”.

AJR has NO “kick-back” relationship with any contractor, roofer, plumber.  We do not accept any money from others working on your job.  Our number one goal is to maximize your settlement for you, then get paid our percentage from the policyholder.  No settlement money is exchanged elsewhere regarding your claim.

It is always best to research anyone you plan to hire for representation with a covered insurance claim.  Some good sites that help with research to locate licensed, reputable firms are the Better Business Bureau, The National Association of Public Insurance Adjusters, NAPIA and the Arizona Department of Insurance.

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.
