Tips Help Atlanta-Area Flood Victims With Contents Inventory and Valuation for Insurance Claims and Filing for Tax Deductions

NATICK, MA--(Marketwire - October 2, 2009) - Now that the clean up is underway, homeowners who have suffered property loss or damage have begun the process of filing insurance claims.

Enservio (www.enservio.com), the nation's leading provider of contents inventory creation and valuation solutions, is offering advice to Atlanta-area residents who have suffered loss or damage to the contents of their homes due to recent flooding.

The following tips can help homeowners who have suffered contents losses take immediate action:

    Understand your homeowners insurance policy conditions

       -- The 'Conditions' section of most homeowners insurance policies
          states that in the case of a loss to covered property, it is the
          insured's responsibility to provide the following information to
          qualify for coverage of lost contents:
              -- Prepare an inventory of damaged personal property showing
                 the description, actual cash value and amount of loss
              -- Include all bills, receipts and other reliable documents
                 that justify the figures in the inventory

    Even if you don't have flood insurance, you still can recoup some of
    your loss

       -- Lack of flood insurance does not mean you're entirely out in the
          cold -- an accurate inventory and valuation of your home's lost
          and damaged contents can be used to file for a deduction on your
          federal income tax.
