1. What is Sinkhole Assistant.com?  back to top
 A  Sinkhole Assistant.com is a web application developed to help inform homeowners of sinkhole related incidents in their area. Our database has over 35,000 records, some of which date back more than 20 years.









2. Is this the same thing as the sinkhole disclosure in a real estate contract?  back to top
 A  Most real estate seller's disclosure forms used in Florida include a sinkhole disclosure statement that covers sinkholes and earth movements in general.  Sometimes it is overlooked.  Reports from Sinkhole Assistant.com are not the same and provide information on surrounding areas, not just the property searched.









3. Where does the information come from?  
back to top
A  The data supporting the sinkhole indicators comes from a variety of sources.  Some of these sources and examples of each include public records (Clerk of Court and Permit offices), private organizations (engineering firms and sinkhole stabilization companies), insurance companies and sinkhole claim adjusting firms.









4. How much does a full report cost?  back to top
A  After you search your address, you may purchase a full report from Sinkhole Assistant.com for $39.99.









5. What information is provided in the full report?  back to top
A  The full Sinkhole Assistant.com report provides you with the number of sinkhole indicators within a one mile radius of the address searched.  Additionally, a color map is included with the nearby sinkhole indicators plotted in relation to address searched.  This report is printable and a copy is delivered to the email address provided at the time of purchase.









6. Does the map show the exact location of all known sinkhole indicators?  back to top
A  Claim Assistant LLC has the most comprehensive database of its kind in Sinkhole Assistant.com.  No other resource available has close to the more than 35,000 sinkhole indicators accessible at Sinkhole Assistant.com.  While we continually work to obtain new data regularly, we do not possess all of the sinkhole related data that may be available in your area.  The map provided in the full Sinkhole Assistant.com report is an illustration only and the point placement may not be an exact location.









7. What if the address I entered is not the address listed in the report?  back to top
A  Some mapping systems recognize street names and addresses differently.  If the address you entered does not match the address returned in your full report, we will work with you to provide you with an accurate report based on the information you provide.  If your report does not contain the information for the property address you searched, please contact us at info@claimassistant.com and provide us with your name, order number, the correct address you searched, and a copy of the full report you received with your order.









8. What if the information I receive does not appear to be correct?  back to top
A We work to verify that all data in the Sinkhole Assistant.com database is accurate.  If for any reason information on the property you searched is incorrect, please contact us at info@claimassistant.com and provide your name, order number, address searched, and the discrepancy.  We will contact you with specific information regarding your concern.









9. I already purchased a report for my property but I no longer have the results.  Can I get another copy?  back to top
A When you order a report, the results are provided in a printable format that you can print immediately.  Also, a copy of the full report is emailed to the address provided by you at the time of purchase for any future references to the searched address.  All other reports provided must be obtained by completing the order process and purchasing the full report for $39.99.
