Impartiality is at the core of everything we do. Whether we are working on behalf of an Insurer, a policyholder or any other stakeholder, we approach our investigations in exactly the same way.

We ascertain the facts, we overlay our extensive expertise, and we deliver reports and recommendations that are fair, even-handed and robust - every time and without exception.

We know that no two industry clients will have the same requirements. That’s why our approach to each client is bespoke and driven by their requirements and established processes.

We will take time to understand how you work and your philosophies and create service level agreements and processes around that. We will provide you with written reports and updates tailored to your needs. Of course, during any correspondence with the policyholder, we will always strive to be clear, concise and free of jargon.

In the latent defect insurance claims arena, having a trusted supply chain is key to delivery of an effective service for our Policyholders. UKDP are smart in their approach. Their offering and expertise is technically excellent. I would not hesitate to use them for an off mains drainage problem.
