We will follow a realistic case study scenario looking at all aspects of modern methods of construction, where 'A modern domestic modular building property has been the subject of a fire originating from solar panels attaching to the roof.
The property has been affected by direct fire, smoke, and significant water damage [from extinguishment waters used by the fire brigade].'
We will focus on the underwriting of modular buildings, and impacts on claims, and address the following learning objectives:
- The different types of modular building which will form current and future housing stocks.
- The importance of “non-standard construction” disclosure during the underwriting process and the consequences of misrepresentation.
- The underwriting considerations and issues that modern method of construction present.
- Modern methods of construction and the impacts on claims management and damage restoration.
- How modern methods of communication and transaction media can affect and impact processes. In particular, the use of aggregator sites.
- How breakdown in the claims handling process can affect and impact individual and family resilience.
