You must notify Q within 90 days of first becoming aware that you think you need to make a claim. If you do not notify your claim within this period, and this affects Q’s ability to fully assess your claim or to keep the underwriter's losses to a minimum, your claim may not be paid or may not be paid in full. If you are unsure whether any problem with your property will lead to a claim, please contact Q anyway in order that they may discuss the problem with you and investigate it if necessary.
If you have a Deposit Protection Insurance Certificate and think you need to make a claim, you must notify Q of the issues you are facing, and provide any details you have of the Developer / Builder’s fraud, insolvency, bankruptcy or liquidation.
You must immediately take all the measures that you can to stop further damage and any potential loss as a consequence of the damage.
On the discovery of damage in respect of which a potential claim arises, Q and any person authorised by Q must be provided full and unrestricted access to your property and surrounding land within your control, for the purposes of investigating the claim and the extent of damage and reinstatement required.
You must provide full details of the conditions which you believe give rise to the claim, and details of any other parties involved.
You must provide details of any other insurances related to your property which may cover you for the same loss or expense as this policy.
If requested to do so by Q, you must record and submit photographic evidence of the conditions which you believe give rise to the claim.
If you are the beneficiary of The Q Policy, then you will have purchased a New Home from one of our Registered Developers and we hope that so far, you have enjoyed living in your property.
