Reports by the Association of British Insurers show the impact of this year’s heatwave, with subsidence claims reaching their highest levels for 12 years. The ABI says the 357% increase in the value of claims is the highest quarterly jump since records started over 25 years ago – and yet many insurers still aren’t using the tools available to help reduce these risks.
Subsidence still represents around 4% of all claims per annum, which in real terms is between £110 million and £120 million every year – so the question is, can insurers do anything to help combat this problem?
