The summer Riots – what if you are affected?

What you need to do if you have suffered loss or damage in the London Riots

If you or people you know have suffered loss or damage as a result of the riots last week in London and other cities in the UK, it is important to act quickly to activate your insurance claim. If you are insured for loss or damage to property you should be covered for damage arising from Riot & Civil Commotion. It is usual for insurers to have a clause in the insurance policy requiring notification of a claim probably within 7 days of the incident.

 

Free Employment GuidelinesPlease be aware that when notifying your insurer you must also be able to quantify the loss.

 

If the disturbances are classed as a Riot the police authority has a legal obligation to reimburse persons who sustain damage to property. This is expressed in the Riot (Damages) Act 1886. At the time of writing we believe the disturbances have been classed as Riots and the circumstances clearly meet the definition of Riot as described in the Act.

 

What does this mean?

Even if you are uninsured you will be able to claim of the lost and damaged property, however damage to motor vehicles is excluded (they didn’t exist when the Act was passed) and there is no protection for consequential losses – i.e. loss of trading income. Also excluded are goods left in shops for repair.


There is no excess or limitation within the Act for qualifying losses, so you will be able to recover your policy excess and for the amount of any underinsurance but as mentioned above you do need to notify your insurers as soon as possible.

 

If you are uninsured under the terms of the Riot Act you have 14 days from the incident to notify the local police authority however we have been advised that this has been extended to 42 days.

 

The "time to pay scheme" operated by HMRC has also been extended for affected businesses that has used the scheme previously.
