Insurance Settlements and Disputes

Our Christchurch Quantity Surveyor and Building Surveyor teamscontinue to assist property owners, insurance brokers, insurance companies and their agents with the preparation of insurance settlement proposals.

Once policy entitlements are defined, our building surveyors can analyse the claim history and the extent of material damage. Our in-house structural and fire engineers can then support the building surveyor in determining scopes for repair or reinstatement.

Once the settlement proposal strategy is defined, our quantity surveyors can establish its true and accurate value. Adopting an independent factual approach to the preparation of insurance settlement proposals reduces disputes and expedites the settlement of claims
