Any statements made that are not entirely true and correct, will cause any

purposes, and carries no other validity for any other purpose whatsoever.

5.In our experience, we've seen a major insurance
company without a proper, independent appraisal, make a serious attempt
to settle a claim at less than 25% of the initial purchase price. In this
instance, we refused to acknowledge that the items could be replaced at
this amount. This is an extremely good example whereby the insurance company
is in business to make a profit, and in so doing utilizes every possibility
or opportunity to reduce the payment of a claim. We will not knowingly make
a false statement, or a false representation, for either an insured, or
an insurance company. In all cases, complete disclosure must prevail from
both the insured and the insurance company.
6. It is understood and agreed that we have
the right to withdraw any and all opinions of value, and that such opinions
of value are then withdrawn. The temporary appraisal will then be considered
null and void.
