ABI publishes guide on what to do if your property or business is damaged during riots

The ABI has published a new guide outlining what to do if your property or business is damaged during a riot.

The guide outlines the options available to people and businesses to get compensation depending on whether your home or business is insured, under-insured or has no insurance at all. 

It also explains how insurers respond to an emergency riot situation and the support that policyholders can expect from their insurer in the days, weeks and months after a riot.

Mark Shepherd, ABI Policy Adviser on Property comments:

"Since the Riots of August 2011, insurers and loss adjusters have played an important role in helping customers and businesses get back on their feet, repairing the damage caused to properties and local communities. The total amount of claims paid out by insurers to customers resulting from the riots is expected to reach £200milion which accounts for approximately 2,500 separate claims."
