Depends. If you have a spotless record, more than likely you will have the credits (discounts) from your policy removed. The policy doesn't really go up, you just loose your "Percentage Off the Retail".

Don't be fooled-- in other words, "yes." If you're used to paying [x], and now you're paying [x+100], then YES you're paying more. Credits are the agents' ways of giving you a discount for good behavior, but they do not continue giving those credits when you have an accident.

It is either a claim for a fire or it is any type of homeowners claims since homeowners policies used to be called fire policies.

Your "Renter's Insurance" should be the one paying the claim. It is your responsibility as a tenant to report any property damage to the landlord, and at the same time it should have been reported to your insurance carrier. If, per chance, one does not have renters insurance (which escapes all understanding why one wouldn't have this) then the tenant is responsible for all damages above what is considered normal wear and tear.

So if anything were to happen to your business e.g a fire then you can use the insurance claim to fix it

Adding onto the home will not make you rate increase by itself. However, you probably will have to increase the amount of coverage you have to reflect the increase in replacement cost. I would suggest that you contact your insurance agent and explain that you have added onto the home and ask them to see if you have enough coverage. If you do not have coverage equal to a certain percentage of the replacement cost you can be penalized on any claim in the future. This depends on what type of homeowner's policy you have and how much coverage you have. This is not something you want to find out after a kitchen fire.

Treatment of goods lost by fire etc. and insurance claim thereof :--Goods worth Rs. 10,000 lost by fire. Insurance claim is yet to be received for Rs. 6000.In this circumstance, goods worth Rs.10,000 (which is lost by fire) is to be credited in trading account separately ( not to be clubbed with closing stock).Then since Rs.6000/- is to be received by insurance claim. (so we are not received ,we have to receive)so this should be posted at asset side of the balance sheetRs.4000/- to be debited in profit loss account.(Because its a loss)

All you need to do is call your Insurance Company and ask for the claims department. You can report your loss by phone.

Or nothing at all. You owned the house at the time of the fire. It was YOUR property that was damaged, and you owned fire insurance to cover yourself against a loss from fire. When you sold your fire-damaged home, you took a hit on the sale price: you didn't get as much as you would have had the house been perfect. You are entitled to whatever the claim adjuster estimated the cost of the repair would be.

The obvious answer is after an accident, theft or fire. http://activeinsurancecompany.co.uk/

I think you have two years to collect if you were cheated, but they have to pay immediately if you file the claim, and your policy covers it.

User Avatar

That will be based on the insurance policy. They typically specify the time frames in which a claim must be filed.

If your neighbor is liable through negligence for causing fire damage to your property you could file a claim on the liability portion of your neighbors insurance policy. If he caused the fire intentionally then his insurance company would not pay for damages as criminal acts are not covered.

Most insurance companies offer fire and water damage in their policy. It's best to speak to a restoration company to get a quote to provide to your insurance company, and then use the money from the claim to hire your own restorator.

Car insurance covers you for accidents, fire and theft of your vehicle depending on what type of insurance you take out. You will need to get a quote from a car insurance company to find out how much your insurance will cost and what it will cover you for in the event of needing to make a claim.

Insurance policies may be categorized into 2 sectors:- Life Insurance and General Insurance. In life insurance, claims arise during maturity and death, when the Insurance Cos are to make payment. In General insurance falls medical insurance, fire & burglary, Professional indemnity,car insurance, Householders policy,shop keepers policy and so on. In medical insurance, when a person is hospitalized for treatment of illness/disease and stay for minimum 24 hours, either he can avail cash less system or claim under reimbursement. In the rest policies, when a fire or burglary occurs or so on, the claim has to be established with proper documentation supported by surveyor's report for consideration of the claim by Insurance Company, where they are policy bound to make payment.

Perpetual insurance is most commonly used for homeowners insurance but can also be used for fire insurance. The most frequent conditions are that the insurer must make enough money to cover the losses in the event of a claim.

Apparently nobody. I've been trying for days, and can't get ahold of anybody there. My next call is to a new insurance company.

User Avatar

No. Insurance benefits from a house fire would be considered a swap of assets. You cannot take a deductible loss on your taxes for the loss that was reimbursed by insurance.
