    Abstract

    Broadly this dissertation focuses on the Building Insurance Claims (BIC) process. The project aims to analyse the process and identify relevant shortfalls. To examine the process this dissertation utilises the occurrence of the 4.2 magnitude Earthquake that occurred in Folkestone on the 28th April 2007. Relatively high levels of damage occurred, mainly in the Foord district of Folkestone. The damage was concentrated around a select number of streets in the area. This dissertation firstly aims to assess the damage caused by the impact of the earthquake, this data will then be analysed and correlated against published secondary data. Focusing on occupants who suffered damage will then allow for views and opinions to be gauged in terms of the BIC process experienced. The collective data will then be analysed, correlated, and concluded identifying any shortcomings in the system. Overall this dissertation aims evaluate the BIC process experienced by residents in the area to establish any area which recommendations could be based.
