  • Visiting the site to perform a thorough damage assessment.
  • Collecting photographic evidence of the damage.
  • Liaising with tradesmen and builders to ascertain level of work needed to restore the property to its original condition.
  • 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.

Qualifications

There are no specific qualifications required though some employers may insist upon a degree, preferably in a relevant subject such as engineering or surveying.
