If you have a mortgage on your home, your insurance company may list the lender on the claim check as well. In order to use the check as payment the mortgage company needs to be notified of the claim and certain steps need to be followed for them to endorse it.
Call your mortgage company and let them know you have filed an insurance claim. Mortgage companies refer to this as a “Loss Draft Claim” and have specific documents that need to be filled out in order to process the claim. Your mortgage company will give you online access to their forms or send them to you via mail, email or fax- please send this to us upon receipt and our office staff will assist in preparing the documents. After work is completed the mortgage company will send out a representative to perform a “final inspection” to confirm status and the final payment will be released from the mortgage company.
Our office administrator assists with all mortgage claim documents and scheduling of inspections. Please forward all documents to firstname.lastname@example.org ATTN: Kerri. Should you have any questions, call the office direct at 815-345-1048.
