House fire Dublin6House fire South Dublin case study – our client, a landlord, received a call from one of his tenants notifying him of fire damage to the rental property. Our client arrived at the property as quick as he could and was shocked as to the extent of damage caused by the fire. Although the fire brigade had responded very promptly, the damage caused to the building was extremely severe.

The fire had been caused maliciously, persons unknown had forcefully entered the property and set alight some of the flammable contents.

ICS were referred to the landlord by a friend and within a few hours, we were in attendance at the site of the fire. We met with the owner and carried out a preliminary visual site survey- we observed significant structural damage to the building and advised our client of our initial findings.  The roof structure and covering was badly burned, charred and subsiding into the building.

In this particular design, the roof and intermediate joists are a necessary part of the structural integrity of the building. The fire caused significant fire damage to the structural timbers, leaving the structure unsupported, unstable and dangerous. The fire had also caused extensive thermal damage, cracking and spalling to the concrete blockwork, thus compromising the structural integrity of the walls and entire structure.

ICS liaised with the local authority and recommended to our client that emergency demolition be carried out without delay, to protect and preserve the safety of the public and the adjoining buildings. ICS assisted our client with the selection of competent contractor to complete these demolitions.

ICS reported the claim to our client’s insurer and met with their loss adjuster and insurer representatives’ onsite numerous times.  The insurers appointed surveyors, engineers, forensic engineers etc.

As previously mentioned, because the damage to the property was so extensive, the negotiations with loss adjusters were protracted, and it took several months to reach a satisfactory settlement.

ICS are registered building surveyors and have an in-depth understanding of the building elements, structure and technology of buildings. ICS liaised with Structural engineers and surveyors to successfully secure and negotiate the full demolition and rebuilding of the entire structure and to ensure that our client’s interests were fully protected.

ICS managed the claim fully from start to finish and ensured that the policyholder was fully protected and received the best possible settlement terms for the loss.

House Fire South Dublin insurance claim resulted in full demolition, clearance of the site and a complete rebuild of the property

I would be happy to recommend Trevor Kelly (Insurance Claim Solutions) in the event you need to make a claim on your household insurance. We recently had a serious leak in our hot water pipes and Trevor’s prompt attention was the essence of professionalism. It also took the hassle and stress out of dealing with the Insurance Company’s loss adjuster and with the pursuit of our claim. Couldn’t recommend him highly enough and would be very comfortable recommending him to family and friends.

The level of service that I received from Trevor Kelly was second to none. This was my first major claim with an Insurer and unsure of the process. Trevor took away all that worry. He was polite, reassuring, punctual and efficient. He dealt will all the details of the claim and completely took away all the hassle. If ever there was a service that I would recommend then it has to be Trevor Kelly. If anyone has the misfortune to make an insurance claim then the first call they should make should be to Trevor Kelly.

I used Trevor's company after I had a leak under my floor, he came recommended to me from leak detectors and the same day as I made the call Craig came out to inspect the damage and he handled everything from there on. I was very anxious as my insurance company had told me they would not cover the damage as I was causing it myself by having to dig up the floor to find the leak but Craig assured me it would be sorted. I am extremely happy with the settlement and the service from Insurance Claim Solutions. I would urge anyone in this position to contact them they take all the worries away.
