CSN is an independent professional Surveyor Network working free for YOU the client, as their fees are paid direct to them by your insurers under instructions from Public Loss Adjusters and of course yourself, ensuring that whatever the extent of the damage caused by your insured event will be repaired and/or reinstated in full. As approved RICS/CIOB surveyors they all carry their own independent professional indemnity to ensure YOU are fully protected at all times.
PLA have established the Combined Surveyor Network (CSN) which are a network of approved building surveyors and/or structural engineers who are all either Members/Fellows of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) or Members of the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) qualified.
CSN cover the entire United Kingdom from the 12 regional locations, with each member firm independently responsible for preparing and administering (where necessary) all aspects of building reinstatement works following fire, flood, impact damage and subsidence insurance claims being initiated by PLA’s team of Professional Insurance Claims Managers.
The insured client is in most cases entitled to the appointment of an independent surveyor to ensure that the schedule of proposed works is quantified and that a transparent tender/quotation process is initiated and that the insured is able to receive all that they are entitled to under the terms and conditions of their respective insurance policies in a clear and concise manner with responsibilities for the supervision of the contractors and review of the standards of workmanship expected.
