To make a home insurance claim, you will need to contact your insurance company with information about the damage or loss to your property. In the case of theft, burglary or other criminal activity, file a police report and use this as evidence for your insurance company.
Make sure to take photos of the damage or loss, as your insurance provider will ask for visual evidence. In the event of a large claim, your insurance provider will usually send a loss adjuster, observing your property and deciding how the case should proceed. If you are successful with your claim, your insurance provider will pay out the agreed sum.
