OVERVIEW

  • Helps underwriters to discreetly validate buildings sums insured to ensure the premium received is commensurate with the risk

  • If the level of cover is found to be inadequate, our comprehensive report can support the presentation of a case for altering the sums insured

  • Helps to avoid disputes over claims and is increasingly deployed by underwriters in conjunction with an offer to remove Average, or to provide Replacement Cost Cover

 

WHY A REBUILD COST ASSESSMENT?

  • It has been estimated that more than three-quarters of insured buildings in the UK have inaccurate or inadequate sums insured

  • This is a major problem for underwriters

  • When sums insured are too low, underwriters do not receive premiums commensurate to risk

  • If this is a common feature of your portfolio, this causes a significant shortfall in premium income

  • Also, inadequate sums insured can lead to bitter disputes over claims following the application of Average, which in turn can cause damaging publicity
