Sinkhole Screening Inspections

The SDII Global, LLC (SDII) Sinkhole Screening Property Inspection, (“SSPI” or Sinkhole Survey), is a data gathering and documentation process that may be incorporated into either policy point of sale or the policy renewal process by the insurance carrier for personal or commercial risk underwriting strategies. The inspection is conducted by a trained Inspector, who gathers data and photos inside the dwelling, outside the dwelling, around the property, and in the surrounding neighborhood. The Inspector then prepares a report based on the information collected including supplemental, site-specific information gathered from various other sources, such as the County Property Appraiser website. These are then integrated into the report. The report is then quality reviewed by the Inspection Services Team and transmitted to the homeowner and the carrier for their records and review.

A major, value-added component of the report is that the compilation of findings in the report are weighted and scored by category including, but not limited to, condition, actuarial, environmental, and geologic issues. This scoring system is totally customizable, whether used in part or in total, based on the carrier’s priorities, business requirements, risk tolerance, and acceptance.

The SSPI work process flow is as follows:

• The homeowner, sales agent or insurance carrier requests an on-site screening inspection evaluation through SDII. The request can be made online
• Charges for the screening are then arranged via credit card. Cost can be paid by the carrier, co-shared between the carrier and homeowner, or 100% borne by the homeowner. Batch billing is also available to the carrier
• Initial contact is made with the homeowner within 7-10 days
• The inspection report (which includes all the data gatherine and photo documentation) is completed within 30 days of assignment, unless specifically requested by the homeowner
• The final report is prepared and electronically transmitted to the carrier and homeowner after a comprehensive quality review and approval process by the SDII Inspection Services team. The client determines who the recipient(s) of the report will be predicated on best business practices and operational requirements
