What you need to know

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions we receive about claims against your home insurances.

How do I make a claim?
In the first instance, call us on 0207 280 3450 to discuss what has happened. Then we can help by advising you based on what your particular circumstances dictate in order to make a claim. You will need to complete a claim form, which we will send you, and the information listed below will also be needed by your insurer.

What information and documentation will insurers require?
To accompany your completed claim form, depending on the nature of your claim, you will need to provide your insurer with some or all of the following:

  • Any recovery details i.e. any third party responsible for the damage
  • Any valuations for any high valued items
  • A crime reference number, if relevant
  • Photographs
  • Room dimensions
  • Leak repair invoice
  • Two comparative estimates
  • Payee details should the claim be accepted by the insurers (preferred method is by BACS transfer)
Can I proceed with my repairs or purchasing a replacement item?
If the claim involves damage to your property, please do not dispose of damaged items and/or authorise any repair work (except in an emergency or to prevent further damage) until we or your insurers advise that you may do so.
How long will it take for my claim to be settled?
Subject to your insurer receiving all the relevant information they should be able to offer settlement fairly quickly. In our experience insurers are not in the habit of delaying payment once everything has been agreed.

What our clients have to say

β€œI am grateful for the care and courtesy you have shown me in handling my claims. I appreciate that you kept me fully informed of what to expect and when. I was amazed at the outcome and Clear's objectives have certainly been met.”

Rosemary Wakeford

β€œIt is rare that I have to make a claim, but on the odd occasion I do I've always had the most brilliant service from CLEAR. Paul Harte and Tracey Price, who handled a recent household claim for me, were both extremely helpful and made sure that my claim was settled promptly and satisfactorily. I found the entire claims process with CLEAR to be straightforward and stress-free.”
