  • Ensuring that the property is safe until the claim can be processed.
  • Assessing the validity of the claim by speaking to the policy holder and establishing the events which lead to the damage.
  • Preparing reports for the insurers recommending course of action.
  • Analysing receipts to make sure possessions being claimed for are genuine.
