A homeowner’s policy protects policyholders from various risks or damage that occurs to or due to their home. It’s likely that you will process many of these claims as an All-Lines Adjuster or if you end up specializing in this area. These claims frequently need to be investigated because Texas has a lot of extreme weather. People may file claims for hail damage, repairs after a fire, to replace shingles if they’re blown off during a heavy windstorm. All of these are frequent occurrences in Texas. Homeowners rely on dependable insurance adjusters to quickly and accurately investigate and file information so they will have sufficient funds to start repairs and replacements. Most lenders also require proof of homeowners insurance before approving a mortgage.
