Tip 52 – Defects– Keep the insurer up to date

When you receive notice of defects, when you receive a defects inspection report, when you have acted on emergency defects – keep your insurer up-to-date. The insurer may choose to take over, or not. Keeping the insurer informed ensures you don’t prejudice your rights under the insurance policy and the insurer is able to make appropriate decisions about your cover and how it will handle each matter, if at all.
