Q: How does the funding work after a property loss?
A
: Once a contract is signed, a complete scope of work and estimate is produced by your project manager. Once approved by the insurance carrier, the insurance payment is sent to the insured’s address. The checks will have the insured’s and mortgage company’s name as well as U S Construction Services, LLC as the general contractor. The insured and U S Construction will endorse the check and U S Construction then forwards it with a number of forms to the mortgage company’s loss payee department. The mortgage company will control the disbursement of funds to ensure that all work is completed, inspected, and approved by the insured. One third of the money is sent for U S Construction to start the job. At 50% completion, a request is made to the mortgage company by U S Construction for an inspection. Once inspected, the second third of the money is sent for U S Construction. At 90% completion, another inspection is requested at which time the remaining one third of the money is sent for U S Construction. The final 10% of the project will be completed and signed off by the insured. Any depreciation or other funds held by the insurance carrier until project completion will be dispersed for U S Construction once a certificate of completion is signed by the insured and sent to the mortgage company.
