The Incident: Fire & Smoke
Local landlord Mr C had a tenant that accidentally set fire to his vape shop. The fire and smoke ripped through the shop and all 4
flats above. A busy man with Over 50 properties in his portfolio we were asked to handle the claim and loss of rent for him so
that the process would be as quick as possible.
“I was introduced to Oakleafe Claims Scotland many years ago. Now and again we have a problem with one of our properties of this nature. I am very experienced in the property industry however when it comes to Insurance claims these are often very complex and time consuming. After they handled my first claim for me I realised
that not only were they much better at it than me but they achieved a far higher settlement than I ever would.”
What We Did
- Met and negotiated with the insurers representatives.
- Engaged chartered surveyors, structural & project managers.
- Prepared & presented the claims to insurers.
- Handled all communications.
- Quantified the building loss.
- Calculated the loss of rent and ICOW.
- Ensured the quick turnaround of repairs.
“I am a solicitor and my time is costly. Even though I am suitably qualified and able to oversee the process, these people are handling claims and insurance companies every day. They are professionals at this and coupled with the enormous experience Oakleafe Claims Scotland have it would be foolish to try to do
this myself. I often advise clients not to go into court without proper representation so why would you attempt to take on an insurance company without the same assistance in similar circumstances? Remember they are the only party who are representing your interests should you be unfortunate enough to have to submit an insurance claim.”
