Using Your Sinkhole Claim Compensation To Repair Your Home
Once you receive compensation for your sinkhole claim, we can help you select the right company to repair your home or building and ensure that the proper repairs, grouting or jacking for example, are being made. We will assist you in selecting only the most qualified and respected repair companies. We will also review any proposed repair contracts and ensure that you are getting the best value for the repair of your property.
Selling Your Home Or Property
In many cases, clients elect not to repair their homes after the conclusion of their insurance claim and instead, just sell their homes in an unrepaired condition. If this option is selected, many clients use the proceeds of their insurance claim to pay down or pay off their mortgage on the property. At Williams Law Association, P.A., we will assist you in this process and can recommend several reputable companies that purchase properties damaged by sinkhole activity.
Regardless of your choice, when you sell your house Florida law requires that you disclose to prospective purchasers the fact that there was sinkhole damage to your home.
