Almost all household policies contain an “assessment clause” that is similar to the standard fire insurance policy.
The submission to the evaluators should be in writing and instruct that the parties do not want the valuation members to follow strict, quick, arbitrary or fictitious rules to determine the actual cash value, without considering all evidence presented to them so that their award serves to completely compensate or reimburse the insured for the actual loss he or she has maintained while not placing him or her in a better position than he or she was in just before the fire.
Through the evaluation provision, the insured and the company promise that if they cannot agree on the amount of loss and claim they can leave their differences to a panel of three impartial arbitrators, called "valuers". The assessors' decision on the amount of the loss is binding on both parties.
The assessment should be used as a last resort when all efforts to achieve an agreed loss with the insured have failed. The evaluation provision is voluntary and neither the insured nor the insurer is obliged to invoke that provision. in insurance coverage, insurance claims handling, infidelity and insurance fraud almost equally for insurers and policyholders.
