Whether a storm, natural disaster, or fire cause damage to a home or apartment building you manage, Five Star Public Adjusters respond quickly and inspect your property thoroughly. That’s why property managers all over the state of Florida depend on our public adjusters when their properties receive damage and they face the overwhelming process of filing insurance claims. Here’s a breakdown of three ways Five Star Public Adjusters help property managers.
1. Five Star Provides a Thorough Third-Party Inspection
When you report damage to your property, your insurance company will send their own adjuster. This is someone who represents the insurance company, not an impartial witness to the damage. The insurance company is paying for their time. Their adjuster only completes a 4-point inspection and looks at damages you report. They may not check as thoroughly or may not explore all the possible causes of damage, which may discourage you from filing a claim for damages that could in fact be covered. If other damage isn’t obvious, the insurance company’s adjuster could potentially overlook thousands of dollars of necessary repairs that would otherwise be covered by your policy.
When you call Five Star, one of our independent, licensed public adjusters performs a thorough 11-point inspection from the topmost shingle on your roof all the way down to the foundation of your home. We look at all potential causes of damage using advanced tools that show us what’s happening behind your walls and in your attic. And the best part is, we work for you, not your insurance company.
2. Five Star Files the Paperwork on Your Behalf
Your time is valuable. The last thing you need, on top of mitigating property damage and dealing with anxious tenants, is the headache of the paperwork necessary to get your claims expedited and processed as quickly as possible. We’re the experts. We file these claims every day on behalf of our clients/policy holders. We make sure your property loss claim gets filed with every “t” crossed and every “i” dotted. And we’ll keep you informed every step of the way.
3. Five Star Gives You Peace of Mind
One of the worst things a tenant can do to property managers is simply not report damage. Sometimes this may be accidental—maybe the tenant didn’t notice a stain on the ceiling of a little-used spare bedroom. Or it could be neglectful, for instance, the tenants may have noticed a problem but simply not prioritized notifying management because their lease is nearly up or they don’t care. In either case, an unreported leak or other problem can grow into a major repair and become a property manager’s and owner’s worst nightmare overnight.
Having a Five Star Public Adjuster perform a thorough, 11-point inspection on each of your properties gives you a detailed report of any existing damage or establishes a baseline, showing that at the time of the inspection, the property was damage-free.
This offers peace of mind in two ways: first, you know your property is safe and free from damage. Second, for any property we inspect and confirm to be damage-free, Five Star Claims Adjusting will provide the building owner with a “Certificate of Good Condition” which you can show your insurance company. If damage does occur later, the “Certificate of Good Condition” helps establish the timeline when the it happened, which is always important when filing an insurance claim.
