An Independent Surveyors Network For Insurance Claims


Welcome To The Nationwide Surveyors Network

Your Own Unbiased Professionally Qualified Surveyor Paid by Your Insurer for Domestic and Commercial Property Claims

How it Works

Most people are unaware that their insurance policies cover them for independent surveying services be it quantum reports, cost analysis, structural designs or reinstatement valuations. Surveying services is an integral part of your insurance premium which everyone pays as part of a calculation made by underwriters to specifically cover the cost of surveyors.

At NSN we don’t charge you, but agree with your insurance company to be appointed on YOUR behalf and we will invoice your insurer directly for our professional services. In almost every claim classed as major or complex loss (£30k plus), insurers or their appointed loss adjusters will request the services of either an in-house surveyor or a network panel surveyor from the insurers own approved lists.

WE BELIEVE THIS IS A CONFLICT OF INTEREST to individual policyholders due to the potential hold insurers may maintain with these same appointed surveyors.  You should consider that your insurer is the controlling paymasters of these preferred panels.

“Would you go to court with the same barrister working for both sides?

Why would you use an insurer preferred surveyor when surely an impartial surveyor working directly for you will ensure nothing is excluded or missing on a scope and maintain a level of control for you to reinstate your property back to its pre-loss condition. You will also have a professional qualified representative fighting in your corner. making sure you are represented independently.

NSN are a nationwide network of surveyors selected and audited for their expertise, experienced and qualifications. We always work on behalf of YOU the policyholder.

Our independent surveyors network consists of vetted and approved RIC’s and quantity surveyors who are waiting to assist you in all areas of the UK. Nationwide Surveyors Network (NSN) will evaluate and audit your loss with a comprehensive report and analysis supplied directly to you and your insurer ensuring you receive your full legal entitlement.

Why Should I Use a Local NSN Approved Surveyor Straight Away?

Unlike insurance surveyors, we are not reliant on your insurer in any shape or form. We are appointed by YOU instead. Otherwise, you may be relying on a surveying company that is dependent on repeat appointments from insurers.

Would you be confident that your insurance appointed surveyors can make a fair assessment of the costs involved to restore your property? After all, it is your property and without an independent assessment you may have no way of knowing the true reinstatement costs compared to the real costs!

Why Should You Care?

It is your property and you have paid your insurance premium; therefore, you should receive the full service you would expect on an independent and impartial basis.

Unfortunately, in many cases when you have a claim and utilise the services of the insurers surveyors you are not aware that most of these surveyors are either owned by the insurer or the loss adjusters representing them. That is why so many policyholders come to us when things don’t go their own way.

They then feel that they have been let down by their insurers and many cases, dependent on when the surveying has happened, it is too late for us to help as the insurer does not want to pay for two surveyors on the same claim.

DON’T HESITATE! Appoint us today and we will have a surveyor to you within 72 hours of your call and your agreement to appoint us.  We will review and submit your signed mandate to your insurer instructing them of our appointment by you. We will get their agreement to our instruction from them directly and agree our fee. Standard fees are calculated at 12% of claim value. This is reduced depending on how high the claim value is. All surveyors in the insurance industry charge similar fees to insurers be it independently appointed or from their own panels.

Our Surveying Services

Assessment, Report and Analysis of Building Schedule For Clients and For Insurers

We appreciate that after a peril there can be a long-lasting trauma from the event, because of this we aim to make our process as stress free as possible.

The Full Process

One of our experts will come and assess your property and discuss matters directly with you. If you are happy to appoint NSN they will ask you to sign an appointment of services mandate and we will submit this to your insurer and obtain the agreement to our services.

Once our appointment is agreed with the insurer, we will re-visit and complete a fully comprehensive and detailed report for the schedule of works. Once complete we will send this to you and your insurer simultaneously for both of your approval of the scope.

Once it is agreed by all parties, we will then send this out for tendering purposes to 3 contractors normally 1 from insurers networks, 1 from another independent contractor network and if needed a contractor of your own choosing

A time limit will be set for tendering price returns and once all are received back to our surveyors we will carry out a full detailed audit of all costs submitted and make our recommendations to you and the insurer jointly.

You will be able to choose which way you wish your claim to proceed be it a fully managed property reinstatement overseen by the surveyor or a cash settlement between yourself and the insurer on a direct basis. (please note NSN cannot be involved in the cash settlement negotiation between yourself and insurers due to FCA regulations)
