Insurance Allowance Agreement and Proceeds:

Without limiting the foregoing, Owner empowers Contractor to engage directly with the Insurance Carrier and meet with its representative in order to negotiate the amount of damage and the cost of the work to be performed on the Property.  If an insurer disburses funds to Owner, those funds shall be held in trust specifically for the payment of Contractor.  Contractor reserves the right to file for supplemental claims resulting from unforeseen circumstances or concealed conditions, increases in labor or material costs or due to an insurance adjuster’s errors, omissions or improper quote.

Break Fee:

Contractor shall assist Owner in submitting, processing, negotiating and settling claims with Owner’s Insurance Carrier for damage to Owner’s roof. If Owner chooses not to have Contractor perform the Services, Owner shall pay Contractor 30% of the total amount approved by the Insurance Carrier, including any supplemental claims, as consideration for Contractor’s assistance with the claim.

Cooperation: 

Owner hereby agrees: (i) to fully cooperate with Contractor in Contractor’s efforts to negotiate with the Insurance Carrier; (ii) to provide complete and accurate information in order to assist Contractor in its efforts; (iii) to continually provide information should additional information become known to Owner that is relevant to this Agreement; and (iv) to allow Contractor to file supplemental insurance claims due to incorrect measurements, and due to material and labor price increases.

PAYMENT DEFAULTS:

SHOULD DEFAULT BE MADE IN PAYMENT OF THIS AGREEMENT, CHARGES SHALL BE ADDED FROM THE DATE THEREOF AT A RATE OF ONE AND ONE-HALF (1-1/2) PERCENT PER MONTH (18% PER ANNUM), AND IF PLACED IN THE HANDS OF AN ATTORNEY OR COLLECTION AGENCY FOR COLLECTION, ALL SUCH LEGAL, COLLECTION AND FILING FEES SHALL BE PAID BY OWNER.

Contractor and its insurers shall exclude all coverage, including defense, damages related to bodily injury, property damage and clean-up directly or indirectly in whole or in part for any action brought by mold, including fungus and mildew, regardless of the cost, event, material, product or workmanship that may have contributed concurrently or in any sequence to the injury or damage that occurs.  Contractor shall have no responsibility or liability for damages caused by rain, fire, tornado, windstorm or other perils as normally contemplated and/or covered by homeowner insurance.  Contractor is not responsible for any interior damage incurred on the Property unless caused by the gross negligence of Contractor.  Owner agrees to take precautions to safeguard any roof equipment or fixtures, such as solar panels or satellite dishes, prior to commencement of the Services, and Contractor shall not assume responsibility for damages to such equipment or fixtures.
