Obtain a Recorded Statement
Modern insurance policies have modified the standard fire policy language (that requires a proof of loss within 60 days of the loss) to only require a proof of loss within 60 days of the date the proof of loss is requested by the insurer. The prudent adjuster should immediately, upon assignment, advise the insured that a proof of loss is required within 60 days of the notice and provide the insured a blank form of proof of loss.
