Insurance reinstatement assessment
Accurately assessing properties is more important than ever due to the rising costs of building materials and labour. At Fisher Wrathall Surveyors, we provide tailored insurance reinstatement services so that you receive adequate compensation in the event of a claim.
What is insurance reinstatement?
When discussing property insurance, the reinstatement assessment is often the least well-understood aspect of the coverage. Insurance reinstatement ensures that you receive a fair RICS assessment for your property if you had to rebuild the property from the ground up. This is particularly important in the event of severe structural damage to a property as it guarantees you receive the right pay-out, in a worst-case scenario. In short, insurance reinstatement is a way to know the overall cost of reinstating your property if you had to rebuild it entirely.
Insurance reinstatement works by having a surveyor assess the property and perform various calculations to determine the reinstatement value. There is a considerable amount of work that goes into this, including looking at how the building was constructed and where it lies.
