How much are you involving yourself in justifying or “approving” of documentation to qualify for Wind Mitigation Rating.
Scenario: Client has a new Sunroom addition recently added (2012); Room is added without the benefit of a permit. The Wind Mitigation form allows for a a Roof Covering rating of A. if the roof covering listed has a Miami-Dade Product Approval listing current at time of installation. (No permit requirement)
Client provides a hand written document on blank paper (no letterhead) with a hand written company name signed by a “Project Manager” Said document lists the address and the product name and FL #.
Are we accountable for verifying that the documentation is valid and that the client is not attempting to fraudulently obtain discounts to which he is not entitled? Or are we facilitating gathering information for the client and not responsible for the authenticity of the documentation?
Question: Do you
a.) Reject the documentation as being insufficient and give the Roof Covering a rating of “C. One of more roof coverings do not meet…” and check the "No information Provided for Compliance. (Main roof was installed with a valid permit 2007)
b.)Accept the documentation as valid and submit it with a rating of A. for the roof covering without questioning the integrity of the client.
