It is unclear no matter whether insurance coverage companies will cover the price of key cleaning functions that are needed to rid Morwell houses of the ash and smoke from the Hazelwood mine fire.

Some residents have been advised they may be ineligible for coverage simply because the fire did not right threaten their houses.

Wallace Street resident Howard Williams says he is unsure no matter whether his insurance coverage company will shell out up.

He says with no an insurance payout or enough support from the State Government, residents will be left to foot the bill.

“So we’;re just waiting to see if there is some way that the insurance council may well motivate insurance coverage companies, due to the fact it really is not just my insurance company, so far I have not discovered anyone which is had a good response to getting their ceiling area cleaned,” he explained.

He says an assessor from his insurance coverage business visited him this week.

“So they make note of all these items, they make note of the truth I have got some airconditioning filters and heating ducts, so I had to wait to hear what the response is but the advice from assessors was not terribly encouraging,” he mentioned.
