H/t to Attorney Chip Merlin’ for posting information on his blog important to the adjusting community (no matter which side your on!) that we can call in or watch the January 6, 2010 Florida Department of Financial Services Consumer Advocate Roundtable with an utmost important topic not only to Floridian’s but to insurance adjusters as well on the topic of Appraisal provisions in Fl policies.
Here are links to his posts- I know I for one will be listening to it since Citizens of FL which many of my family and friends are insured with has already removed the appraisal provision from homeowner policies. Here are links on the topic so you can listen in or watch as well:
