Beware of storm chasers knocking on your door and pressuring you, a homeowner, to sign an AOB form before getting on your roof to investigate storm damage. Assignment of Benefits abuse is becoming more common. These storm chasers may even go as far as promising a free roof if you just sign the form before they get on your roof. BE AWARE and SMELL THE RAT!
What is Assignment of Benefits Abuse?
An AOB, or Assignment of Benefits, is a form legalized to speed up claims by helping homeowners avoid having to pay upfront money.
Unfortunately, Assignment of Benefits abuse is getting more common. The form is being abused by unscrupulous contractors taking advantage of homeowners and insurance companies.
Here’s a great article that was written in the Orlando Sentinel about this very thing. This abuse can affect EVERY HOMEOWNER who has a Homeowner’s Insurance Policy by causing the rates to skyrocket.
You can help STOP THE ABUSE – The Consumer Protection Petition gives you the opportunity to make a difference in asking the Florida Legislature to rein in this AOB abuse and protect consumers.
