Do I have to wait until the Claim is processed before my property can be repaired?

No you do not have to wait.  If your property is extensively damaged, such as a damaged roof, it is best that you make the repairs while your claim is being processed.  However, the following should be noted:

  1. Steps must be taken to protect self and property
  2. Temporary repairs can be undertaken to protect property and to prevent further loss
  3. Photographs are to be taken of damage before repairs
  4. Bills/receipts relating to temporary repairs are to be kept for submission
  5. Nearest police station to be indicated on form
