The appraisal provision in a property insurance policy allows the policyholder to hire an independent appraiser to determine the value of their damages. The insurance company will typically also hire their own independent appraiser. The two appraisers will then get select together an umpire. The umpire is basically an arbitrator. If a disagreement between the two appraisers arises, they can present their differences to the umpire who will make a ruling. These three individuals are known as the Appraisal Panel, with the goal to determine the Amount of Loss. The Amount of Loss is the total dollar amount needed to return the damaged property back to original condition, either by repair or replacement.
