What is I only want recoverable depreciation on a portion of the claim. i.e, paint was cheaper than

claim allowed for. However, countertops more. If I did the painting myself, can I still get the recoverable depreciation on the countertops?If I have the receipts for them or would I have to show receipts for all?

If your repairs are lower than the worth of your settlement check based on the estimate, then you need not worry at all. I don't think it would require you to show the receipts if the estimate has been accepted by the carrier already.

if you have a policy that states repair and replacement cost increases, section I coverages have been increased by 4.5% why would you have a recoverable

depreciation on your repair estimate by insurance adjustor?

Instead of repair the damaged part of the house, the home owners decide to rebuild that part. How can the home owner claim the recoverable depreciation from their insurance?

The homeowner can do whatever the homeowner wants to do. The insurance company is not obligated to IMPROVE the property, its only obligation is to RESTORE to whole. If the restoration cannot be performed without more extensive repairs, then the insurance company will pay for that work. It has to be predetermined, not presented after the fact.

how does an adjuster determine what will be reimbursed to an insurer for meals? Suffered severe smoke damage thru out entire home and insurance claim replaced stove. however, took insurance company over 2 month to send check for damages. therefore, causing me to eat out everyday. i sent the adjuster receipts over 2 months and have not heard anything. also, original claim included the cleaning of carpet and after 2 attempts from professionals, its still not clean and causes problems for my son who has asthma(has to open bedroom window)

i have also given the adjuster this information, along with replacement estimates for carpet, which is an additional $5,000 and still nothing. Im now in my 6 months of trying to close this claim. Have sent emails to adjuster for 2 months and nothing but he will get back to me. any advice would be helpful at the point.

These monies are not to be confused with 'uncovered or disallowed' claims. Recoverable depreciation is "incentive" money that has already been determined as needed by the claimant to help with repairs. More times than not, the initial check is NOT enough to cover the total of repair and the claimant may be in a pickle if they cannot find a contractor to work with them on a partial payment and then reimbursed by the insurance company after completion of repairs.

I have a claim with a depreciation value which i can recover after my work is finished. do I need to send in reciepts for the exact amout the company allows for that repair, or can i spend less on that and more on other repairs that do not have a depreciation value.

This is America . . . you can freely spend your own money any way you choose. But you do not have the freedom to spend the insurance company's money on items that were not damaged and subject to your covered loss.



Recoverable depreciation is exactly that. You recover the actual cost of repair or replacement of covered property in excess of its "Actual Cash Value" (replacement cost less depreciation).



If, after your deductible is satisfied, the ACV is $1000, but the estimated cost to replace is $2000, you will get a check for the $1000 up front, and the balance after submitting invoices for the repair/replacement. If you repair or replace for $1500 by doing some of the work yourself, or because you found the item on sale, you will only be reimbursed for the $500 difference.



And . . . don't think of submitting, as some folks try to do, fake invoices inflating the cost of repair/replacement in order to get the money you need to fix or replace other property. That's called insurance fraud, and you might enjoy several years in state prison if convicted.

If you have not signed the check only you can cash it. Did you sign it? None the less, call the mortgage company and let them know what the situation is.

First, please start a new thread if its a new question.



Your policy only owes replacement cost if you replace the items. If they afre not replaced then you have been paid the depreciated amount already.



If you are saying that you cannot afford the difference up front then use all of the money paid to replace one or more items. Get paid the difference on those items. Rinse and repeat.
