During the unfortunate incidents in London and other major cities in the UK over the last few days many homes and businesses have been devastated by fire, theft or general malicious damage. If you have concerns that your property or business may be at risk over the coming days the following advice should help them minimise the risk of damage from riots or subsequent looting:
If you are unlucky enough to have been affected by these events we are here to help. The majority of our policies will provide protection against any loss or damage caused by riot. Please follow the guidelines below.
The Riot Damages Act 1886 places a responsibility on the Police Authority for any damage caused by riot. The Act defines Riot as “when 12 or more people have gathered to use or threaten violence for a common purpose”. It may be that police authorities will not accept that the damage reported is as a result of “riot”, however, it is important policyholders make the intention to claim under this Act clear at the time they notify the police of any damage, from thereon we will take on any recovery action on their behalf.
Policyholders should report any damage to the police at once as there is a 14 day limit for notification under the Riot Act 1886, obtain a crime reference number and inform them that they intend to make a claim against them for the cost of any loss or damage under the Act.
Please ensure we are notified in writing within seven days of the incident occurring giving full details together with the appropriate completed claim form. For further information please check Ansvar policy wordings in the ‘General Conditions’ section. Should you have any queries, please contact our Claims Department on 0845602 0339.
