Commercial Claims

  • Our client lives in one of three flats in a large converted Victorian terracePicture5
  • All three flats were separately insured and equally responsible for common areas such as the roof
  • During a storm, a tree fell on the terrace’s roof
  • One of the residents called their insurer who appointed a loss adjuster
  • The insurer took a long time to fix the damage or even respond to their client
  • LV= contacted the customer’s insurer and made sure the insurer took action to fix the damage
  • LV= then sent a loss adjustor with the view of issuing a cash settlement
  • Our client is very happy with the way LV= handled the claim and both neighbours were so impressed that one is now insured with LV= and the other is planning to switch to LV= at renewal!
