Why try to manage the repairs yourself, when you can leave it all to us?

Dealing with an insurance claim yourself isn’t easy. Trying to organise several quotes for your insurer is not only frustrating, time consuming and unnecessary. But often home owners don’t have any building expertise. Our Claims Manager however, has the experience and knowledge to ensure you make a successful claim. He will also take care of everything from the survey and quote, through to managing all our contractors. IC Assist do not charge you or your insurer for managing your claim, providing we carry out all the repairs. So why waste your time arranging quotes and managing tradesmen, when we manage everything free of charge?

Be aware of fees for professional services overlooked by insurers!

We’ve managed many claims where insurers have overlooked fees for professionals. Should your claim require any of the professional services listed below, we’ll ensure your insurer pays these costs. That is, providing your policy includes them.

Professional fees that can sometimes be necessary:

Party Wall Surveyor – to comply with the Party Wall Act. If repairs are required to a party wall, you’re required by law, to serve them a Party Wall Notice – as per the Party Wall Act 1996. (A party wall, is one that you share with your adjoining neighbour). It’s crucial that this is done correctly. As you are unable to start any repairs to your home, until your neighbour consents to the proposed work. Don’t worry, we can instruct a Party Wall Surveyor to ensure you comply.

Building Control Officer – for structural property repairs. Where repairs are of a structural nature (such as replacing rotten joists), Building Control must be notified. Furthermore, before any restoration work begins, an application outlining the proposed works must be submitted. As part of our service, we’ll complete all the necessary paperwork. IC Assist will also liaise with the Local Authority’s inspectors, to ensure everything complies with current building regulations. On completion of the structural work, Building Control will issue a Certificate Of Completion. We’ll ensure you’re given a copy of this for your records.

Structural surveyors. Where there is damage that affects the structural safety of your property, a structural surveyor will be necessary. Their role is to assesses the damage so that you and your family aren’t put at risk. This is something that IC Assist can also arrange for you.
