Indiana Claims Adjusters Bill Passes
Per a the below this bill will not allow general contractors to have contracts signed by property owners giving the contractor to act on their behalf, and communication directly with the GC, which has been going on for years where contractors are acting like Pas.
When Ouellette & Associates receives a contract from a contractor advising they are representing a property owner, we always remain in contact with the insured; and now we are able to pass this bill information onto the contractor.
d) A home improvement supplier shall not:
(1) represent or negotiate on behalf of an insured consumer;
(2) offer to represent or negotiate on behalf of an insured consumer; or
(3) advertise that the home improvement supplier will represent or negotiation behalf of an insured consumer; in connection with an insurance claim concerning any home improvement involving residential property.
This is now part of Indiana Code 24-5-11 specifically IC 24-5-11-10.5
