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

Trevor was recommended to us only 4 weeks ago. We had a leak in kitchen which we thought would need just a new floor. Trevor came in and from that moment onwards we were in safe hands, far more damage than we ever thought thanks to Trevor, he did all the work with our insurance company, no hassles at all. If you have something happen at home and are thinking of using your insurance look no further than Trevor. His knowledge his second to none, best decision we have made in years. 5 stars isn't enough.ThanksNigel and Mags

I am delighted to recommend Insurance Claim Solutions to anyone facing a need to submit a home insurance claim. We had a significant escape of water from our attic tank while we were away, and came home to quite a smelly mess and water damage. We contacted Insurance Claim Solutions and really appreciated Trevor Kelly's attention to detail, and his professionalism. Trevor is a really good communicator and he is friendly, he took away all of the hassle and bureacracy for us; and as an industry expert he was thorough in preparing our claim and negotiating on our behalf. We handed everything over to Trevor and had no regrets; now that the claim has been settled, we could not be more satisfied. Thank you Trevor.

Trevor is a great communicator and was extremely good at keeping me up to date on how the process was progressing. He kept me reassured that the issue had his focus and commitment at all times. I would highly recommend Trevor.
