Let me start by saying that I am thankful that you and your loved ones safe and sound. I’m sorry to hear that things for your home did not turn out quite as well. Hopefully the damage was minimal and you will be back in the swing of things very soon. And, in many cases, that means getting your insurance check endorsed by the mortgage company.
One thing I have been reminded from going through Hurricane Matthew (yes, my home was hit too. I am writing this as much for myself as for you), is most people are good. Neighbors are checking on each other’s homes. They are sharing information. Neighbors are safeguarding each other and their communities. They are banding together to clean up and share supplies. Neighbors are helping each other.
Yes, most people are good. This includes your mortgage company and your insurance company. They want your home to be safe, secure and returned to normal as quickly and conveniently as possible.
While this post is specifically written for the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew, many of the tips will apply after any natural disaster and will also apply anytime that you have to get an insurance check processed by your mortgage company. So here we go…it’s all about getting your insurance check endorsed by the mortgage company quickly.
