Beware of Doorstep Loss Assesors

The Scottish National Party’s Ms Roseanna Cunningham MSP, Member of the Scottish Parliament for Perthshire South & Kinross-shire has urged her constituents to be very wary of independent loss assessing companies contacting them in light of recent flooding.

Ms Cunningham said:

“I am concerned that representatives of these companies have already been in the village of Comrie asking residents to consider using their services in the aftermath of the recent flooding. 

 “It is my understanding that these companies are not working on behalf of insurance companies and I would always urge any of my constituents contacted to exercise extreme caution in dealing with doorstep or telephone cold callers.

 “The Scottish Flood Forum is urging people affected by flooding to contact their own insurance companies as soon as possible and organise any repairs and claims through them. There are real concerns that using a loss assessing company can lead to householders having to pay considerable bills and I fully echo that advice.

 "The aftermath of flooding is a very difficult time for anyone to deal with and can make people particularly vulnerable.

 “Anyone affected should contact their insurance companies directly  and go through the correct procedures with them. People should be extremely wary of anyone coming to their door who has not been sent officially by their insurance company."
