Repossession claims will be assessed and if accepted and deemed appropriate, an enquiry agent will visit the tenant and any guarantor. If the agent is unable to reach an agreement with the tenant/guarantor to remedy the situation, we will appoint a solicitor to act for you. It is important that you do not seek legal advice prior to getting in touch with us. We will not pay for the costs involved, even if we accept the claim.
All other claims will be assessed and accepted if deemed appropriate and an appointed lawyer will act for you. Full details of how to make a claim are in your policy booklet.
