Event Details


Many insurers have recently changed, or are indicating a change, in their strategy and are seeking to cash settle insurance claims.


Most policies do have a clause which states that the insurer is entitled to pay the cash equivalent of the cost of the repairs or rebuild, but…


Dr Duncan Webb of Lane Neave, along with Peter Woods of Anthony Harper are giving their time to help us homeowners learn a little about what this might mean, and how we can best navigate successfully through this situation.  Peter Woods will specifically look at the EQC aspects.  There will be time to ask individual questions.


At the meeting we will provide an opportunity to donate to Nepal through World Vision.  Their situation is dire and every little bit we can do to help makes a difference.

Kind regards
