Property Damage Insurance Claim Problems

Homeowners and Condo Owners:
Know Your Rights

Did your property insurance company invoke its “right to repair” your property? Did they require you to use “preferred” contractors? This is called MANAGED REPAIR and when an insurance company uses that option, you have certain rights, the most important of which is:

Our firm’s experienced attorneys and investigators work on behalf of homeowners, condo owners, and condo associations to make sure that your rights were not violated.

Below is a list of Florida property insurers that regularly invoke their “right to repair” residential property claims and also some of their “preferred” or affiliated repair contractors.
