  • Flood Articles | Morgan Clark
    Firstly there was good news and bad news in last week s budget for the insurance industry First the bad news insurance premium tax IPT is rising by 0 5 per cent to 10 per cent only a few months after a 3 5 per cent hike The good news is that this was less than the insurance industry feared but also that the proceeds from this latest rise will be added to government funds to improve flood defences in the most at risk areas of the country But some people in the insurance industry weren t happy particularly as every type of insurance will be hit even motor insurance In the home insurance market there are fears that yet another rise in IPT could put people off from taking out insurance and leave them exposed if something happens Meanwhile we are only a couple of weeks away from the launch of Flood Re which aims to provide affordable flood insurance for households across the country But according to reports in the press over the last few days there are still two issues hanging over its launch one around regulatory approval and the other around software for brokers Who knows whether it will actually go live in April we wait with bated breath and will of course report back Finally one of the key gripes about Flood Re is that is doesn t cover small businesses However the British Insurance Brokers Association announced last week that it is looking at launching sometime this year a scheme similar to Flood Re for small businesses That really is good news Cockermouth floods turning to Morgan Clark a second time Post by Morgan Clark February 19 2016 It s so sad that many of the victims of the recent flooding in the north have been through this terrible experience before Cockermouth in particular is going through its second serious flooding in six years We worked with many Cockermouth homeowners and businesses after the 2009 floods helping them with their insurance claims And while it s so disheartening to see them affected a second time it is also very reassuring that many of them have turned to us again This shows the big difference they felt we made by taking over their claim allowing them to get on with rebuilding their lives One example is an elderly lady whose house backs on to the river in Cockermouth In 2009 she started an insurance claim herself but soon realised how difficult it would be so she turned to Morgan Clark and she is using us again in 2016 She told us When I met Morgan Clark I felt I would have someone on my side who would do the best for me and my children The insurers took more notice of them than if I d been on my own and it was all much quicker than for my neighbours who handled things themselves So once again I m just going to let them do

  • Freezing Weather Articles | Morgan Clark
    apart from anything else it s actually a great deterrent Secure your shed this is just as much a target as your home Hide valuables having expensive items on view near windows is asking for trouble Put your keys away don t leave keys near a letterbox as thieves can grab these and then use them from the outside Get rid of ladders these can give thieves an easy route into your home Invest in CCTV this may be a little extreme but this is also a good deterrent One bit of advice is to have dummy cameras these might work just as well A final bit of advice is to make sure your home insurance is up to date and covers everything you need And if you re renewing your policy don t just go for the cheapest deal you can find This might be a false economy if it doesn t give you the cover you d need if you re unlucky enough to suffer a break in So check the small print carefully Beat the freeze over the festive season Post by Morgan Clark December 19 2014 It s nearly Christmas and over the last few years there have been a number of festive seasons which have been marred by sudden drops in temperature After the freeze comes the thaw and that s when we see problems with burst pipes causing water to gush through houses and businesses As water freezes it expands which can cause pipes to split When the water thaws it then pours through the cracks in the pipes What is particularly worrying at this time of year is that many people go away for Christmas or New Year which can mean coming back to a catastrophe We ve worked with many people to whom this has happened you can read about their experiences here The website www moneyfacts co uk has written an excellent list of a few simple steps you can take to prevent your water pipes from freezing which include Keep the heating on don t turn the heating off if you re going away for Christmas or the New Year It doesn t have to be a very high temperature around 12 15 degrees will do and it can be on a timer You just have to keep the chill away Insulate your pipes including the ones in your loft Repair dripping taps if the water dripping then freezes in the drainpipe this can cause a blockage Check your stopcock you need to turn it off quickly in an emergency so check where it is and check it s working properly Let warm air circulate open up cabinets in the kitchen and bathroom particularly those against external walls and also open the hatch to the loft This allows the warmer air in the house to reach areas which are at risk of freezing But let s hope the freeze doesn t come Prepare your home for winter Post by Morgan

  • More hurdles for Riot Act reforms |
    Damages Act which were announced in this year s Queen s Speech This follows the terrible incidents in August 2011 and the ongoing problems some still face in receiving compensation The changes to the Act are likely to face significant opposition particularly because one of the proposals is to cap the size of businesses eligible for compensation The government wants to place a limit of 2 million turnover for making a claim against the police So this would exclude all but the smallest businesses and in particular many retailers and these were some of the most high profile victims of the riots in 2011 The Association of British Insurers ABI has responded very strongly stating that the proposed changes to the law would leave only the smallest businesses in a position where they could claim compensation The ABI also warns this could lead to insurance companies introducing high excesses for riot cover or even excluding it altogether I reckon it s going to be a rather rocky road We ll keep a close eye on what happens Share this page This entry was posted in Business Insurance News and tagged buildings insurance business insurance business interruption commercial insurance insurance claim riot damage Back to the blog archive Request a call back Please leave this field empty Categories Burst Pipe Articles 7 Business Insurance News 77 Escape Of Water Articles 1 Fire Articles 37 Flood Articles 42 Freezing Weather Articles 7 Home Insurance Articles 1 Home Insurance News 99 Insurance Articles 34 Landlords Articles 10 Loss Assessors 12 News 113 Other Residential Articles 3 Theft Articles 9 Archive April 2016 March 2016 February 2016 January 2016 Morgan Clark Fire and Flood Insurance Claims Management Residential Commercial Fire insurance claims Flood insurance claims Burst pipes insurance claims Other insurance claims Fire insurance

  • Students and insurance cover |
    One big difference between now and a few years ago is that it is so much easier now to stay in touch with them because of the internet mobile phones and social media But this also means they re likely to have much more valuable equipment with them making insurance even more important than in the past I saw a really useful article in the Guardian which looked at this whole subject It estimates that the average student has more than 2000 worth of laptops smartphones and bicycles with them and also that they are three times more likely to be the victim of a burglary than when living at home Students can often have cover via their parents own policy or they can to buy a specialist student policy But there are all sorts of caveats on the former which are explained really well in the Guardian article and the main advice is to check the small print on your policy You can also visit the Money Advice Service to find out more about the subject this is the really useful website of a government backed independent organisation which provides all sorts of help on how to manage your money Share this page This entry was posted in Home Insurance News Insurance Articles Other Residential Articles Back to the blog archive Request a call back Please leave this field empty Categories Burst Pipe Articles 7 Business Insurance News 77 Escape Of Water Articles 1 Fire Articles 37 Flood Articles 42 Freezing Weather Articles 7 Home Insurance Articles 1 Home Insurance News 99 Insurance Articles 34 Landlords Articles 10 Loss Assessors 12 News 113 Other Residential Articles 3 Theft Articles 9 Archive April 2016 March 2016 February 2016 January 2016 Morgan Clark Fire and Flood Insurance Claims Management Residential Commercial
