Making your Insurance/FEMA Claim as Smooth As Possible NO FLOOD INSURANCE? SOME RESOURCES: a. Register with FEMA (https://www.fema.gov/hurricane-harvey). Get in line now. Don't wait until the storm passes. b. File for the Disaster Assistance and Emergency Relief Program (https://www.benefits.gov/benefits/benefit-details/4418), and file your Publication 547 form (https://www.irs.gov/publications/p547/) with the IRS. Both of these programs allow for residents to write off their losses via taxes, and even refile your most recent taxes, thus potentially getting an unexpected refund, something that could go a long way in recovery. c. Apply for the Disaster Legal Services Program (https://www.benefits.gov/benefits/benefit-details/431). Through this program, the government provides legal services to lower-income individuals. This can help when seeking insurance claims, dealing with contractors and home repairs, etc. A huge benefit. d. Apply for Rebuild Houston Together (http://www.rebuildinghouston.org/homeowners.htm), a group that helps senior citizens rebuild their homes. e. See if you belong to a group that is a member of the Tool Bank (http://www.houstontoolbank.org/borrow…/first-time-borrowers/), a group that brings much needed tools to a disaster area. Note you must be a part of one of their member orgs, such as a church or other charity, including neighborhood associations. f. Apply for assistance with Team Rubicon (https://teamrubiconusa.org/response/capabilities-services/) a group that specializes in helping gut homes damaged by disaster so that trade professionals can come in and get the job done faster and cheaper. g. Work through the options at DisasterAssitance.gov(https://www.disasterassistance.gov/get-assistance). Links found on this site will streamline some of the other steps, e.g. FEMA application. #HURRICANEHARVEY h. Another useful resource : http://harrisrecovery.org/ Here is more information to share with people whose homes that have flooded: 1. Ensure physical safety - everything else can be replaced - you can’t 2. You are in a marathon now, not a sprint - everything will take much, much longer than you want it to. You will be dealing with the federal government (national flood) and they move at their own pace 3. Take pictures - lots of pictures. Establish how high the water was inside and outside of your house. You need to prove how deep the water was as part of your flood claim. Use a yardstick or ruler on the outside of your house to establish the high water mark. 4. File your claim immediately - get in line for adjustors, etc. 5. Flood insurance will not reimburse you for loss of use, so any hotel or lodging expenses will be out of pocket 6. Save all receipts - all of them 7. Order a POD or storage container as they will sell out fast or rent a storage unit 8. As soon as the water recedes, start mitigating the damage. Shopvac out what water you can, remove the wet carpets, remove the baseboards and start removing wet sheetrock. Cut a line about 2 feet up the wall. The straighter you cut, the easier the rebuild will be. Bag debris/insulation etc and take it outside. Save a square of ruined carpet and ruined carpet pad for the insurance to verify replacement value - if you have multiple carpets, save multiple samples. - Your goal is to get anything wet out of your house so it can begin to dry. Don’t worry about removing glue down hardwoods, let the contractor handle that during the rebuild 9. Take pictures of any damage you see, wet sheetrock, wet carpet, wet furniture, anything you want to claim - document. For contents, document individual items - each shirt, book, etc needs to be enumerated and documented for the claim - if you say 20 books on your claim, you need a photograph where 20 books can be individually accounted for - be exact and over detailed 10. We are expecting more rain so don’t put flood debris where it can float away, block a drain and cause more trouble 11. Be very careful about hiring “the experts” companies will bring in fans, etc. and eat up a lot of your claim check by “drying” your house - once the walls are open, the studs will dry in time. Every dime you spend renting expensive blowers is money you can’t use towards granite countertops or tile upgrades when you rebuild. Fans, your air conditioner a dehumidifier from Home Depot will do the job. You can spray the studs with bleach as they dry out. We saved $10K each claim by doing the work ourselves in our three floods. 12. Be careful hiring contractors - ask for multiple references, ensure they use sub-contractors they know - they will be busy and be prepared to wait 13. Plastic storage tubs work better than cardboard boxes for storage of your undamaged stuff 14. Be nice to the adjustor - he or she will be valuing your loss and establishing the rebuild - every dollar counts, so be a pleasant memory for the adjustor, rather than “that” person 15. No matter who your insurance company is, all flood claims go through the federal government, all money comes through FEMA, so the time between the adjustor visiting your house and you getting money takes weeks/months - be patient - it is challenging and horrible waiting, but you are dealing with the government and all the other claims that are in flight as well. 16. Your first estimate will likely be less than you expect, so work with your contractor to file a supplement for things that were missed. Be wary of working with 3rd party arbitrators as they will take a %age of your total claim, not just any extra they get you in the supplement. 17. Accept help when offered and be specific - if someone asks “what can I do?” tell them something specific - I need candles, contractor bags, sandwiches - be grateful of those that reach out and be honest with what you need. 18. You will get through this, it is a struggle, but you will get through it. Lean on your faith, your friends and family. 3. Tips on Moving and Places with Current Availability Here is a list of move in ready apartments for all those displaced from their homes. This was updated as of yesterday. If you know anyone in need, please pass this on Please rent a storage space before you start to move your possessions if you are not moving into an apartment immediately. If you need moving help, please call us. We are restocking our boxes and supplies daily. Amazing Spaces had storage space available the last time that I checked. Rent a storage space that is larger than you think that you will need. If you do not stack your possessions, you will be able to access quickly as you need them.
