My home insurance cover had lapsed. I asked Pat McCormack to survey the house. I gave the survey to my insurance broker and ended up saving over €300 on my previous insurance premium. Pat produced a comprehensive report which showed the state of repair of the house. He noted some items where we could prevent losses in the future i.e. a carbon monoxide alarm in the utility room and insulating our water tank. I have since upgraded my roof insulation and got the cavity walls pumped with insulation. I think the insurance companies are happy to have this survey completed because it confirms exactly what has been filled out on the proposal form.
