Property Damage Insurance Claim - What to Do?
My parents have a rental property, which was damaged by the former tenant and managed by a real estate agent. The property was insured (landlord insurance) and as part of our property damage claim, the repair quote has been approved.
Since the former tenant left, the real estate agent has been less than responsive to assist us in getting the rental property fixed (i.e. arrange quotes). I'm currently thinking of changing real estate agents.
As such, the claims officer has proposed a cash settlement. But I've been wondering if the insurer can arrange the fixes to our rental property.
With landlord insurance, can I ask the insurer to arrange the fixes to our rental property as per their approved repair quote?
Your advice would be greatly appreciated.
