Insurance 101 – Chapter 8 – Volume 91 – Waiver of Appraisal

Waiver of Appraisal

The right to appraisal can be waived. “An agreement [in California] to conduct an appraisal contained in a policy of insurance constitutes an ‘agreement’ within the meaning of [Code of Civil  Procedure] section 1280, subdivision (a), and therefore is  considered to be an arbitration agreement subject to the statutory contractual arbitration law.” Although in general arbitration is a highly favored means of settling disputes, a trial court may deny a petition to compel arbitration if it finds the moving party has waived
that right.
