Parents house burnt down, now what?
As the title says, my parents house burnt down yesterday. Public adjusters, restoration specialists, and all kinds of other people have been contacting them about what to do next, and to be honest they are just overwhelmed right now.
It seems like right now the best bet is to get a state licensed public adjuster. Is this correct? Their insurance is putting them in a hotel for the next 20 days, but I doubt the house will be rebuilt by then … what happens next?
They have credit cards with open credit to make purchases for things like new clothes and food (which I have told them to save all receipts for) but little to no cash in a savings account.
The state is Michigan if that helps.
