I've been working in the Buy to Let field in the North East for some years now, having come into contact with hundreds of professionals in different areas of the industry I can honestly say Sara Holmes from Aspray Sunderland has been one of the most professional individuals I've had the pleasure of working with. She's capable, friendly and easy to work with, I could not recommend her highly enough.
"I have changed the lives of hundreds of people by creating places that they can call home."
My name is Sara Holmes and I operate Aspray (Sunderland).
I have lived, studied and worked in the North East all of my life and use my experience, knowledge and network to help insurance Policyholders to manage insurance claims and property reinstatement works from inception to completion.
I graduated with MA in Housing Policy and Management and after starting work in the management department of a large housing association, I quickly realised that my interest lay in the bricks and mortar of housing. I was lucky that my employer recognised my project management skills and moved me into the development department to help with a big demolition project and I have never looked back.
I have worked for over 20 years in property development and have developed an in-depth knowledge of buildings, contractors and costs across Sunderland and the North East. I have a can-do attitude and love being able to use my skills to bring people together, solve problems and to deliver results.
Before joining Aspray, I managed new build and refurbishment projects for housing associations, local councils and private house builders with values ranging from £1 to £35m.
Many of my projects have been in areas of significant regeneration, where engaging existing residents, some of whom have been very upset, has been key to getting it right, leaving a lasting legacy behind which has been very challenging at times. I am a good listener and use tact and diplomacy when interpreting concerns, instructing designers and presenting ideas back to people.
Outside of work I enjoy being away from it all surrounded by hills and open countryside walking away the hours and enjoying the fresh air with my husband Ben and our daughter Anya. I am also a keen cook and enjoy entertaining friends and family taking any opportunity I can to get everyone together.
Water damage is one of the most common causes of residential or commercial buildings insurance claims. A leaky or frozen pipe can sometimes lead to extensive, and sometimes expensive, damage to your property and its contents.
If you experience water damage, Aspray could help by negotiating with your insurance company or their loss adjuster, drying out your property if necessary and instructing vetted contractors to complete reinstatement works.
Suffering a fire in your residential or commercial property can be destressing and the damage caused can, in some cases, be catastrophic. Aspray could help restore your home or business to its pre-loss condition, providing a helping hand when you may need it most.
Where applicable, if your residential property is damaged an Aspray loss assessor will arrange temporary accommodation for yourself and your family should you be unable to remain in your property while repairs are carried out.
Adverse weather conditions are out of your control and a severe storm can cause damage to various aspects of your residential or commercial property. High winds, heavy rain, hail and snow can all potentially cause harmful effects to your home or business, from broken roof tiles to an uprooted tree landing on your house or business.
Damage caused by a storm can take many forms however, our project managers are experienced at reinstating properties that have been affected by extreme weather conditions.
Extreme floods have been prominent across the UK over the past few years, with home and business owners suffering extensive damage, leaving them without a habitable property for extended periods of time.
If your property has been flooded, Aspray (Sunderland) could, were applicable, arrange temporary accommodation and begin organising the cleaning and stripping of fixtures, fittings and furnishings that have been damaged because of the flood.
Predominately caused by a vehicle colliding with your residential or commercial property or boundary, the physical damage of impact can be big enough and Aspray (Sunderland) understand that the emotional impact could be even greater. The property owner can usually recover the cost of the damage under their own policy and then your insurances can often pursue a recovery of costs against the offending motorist.

Our most frequently asked question - What is the difference between a Loss Assessor and a Loss Adjuster?
A loss assessor works in the best interests of the policyholder. Sometimes known as a public loss adjuster, a loss assessor manages property damage insurance claims on behalf of the policyholder, working towards achieving a fair settlement from the insurance company.
In 2005, it became a legal requirement for all loss assessors to be regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) to ensure that insurance claim management meets specific standards. Aspray Ltd is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and can be found on the FCA Register.
An Aspray loss assessor goes beyond simply negotiating and agreeing your claim with the insurer, they also project manage all repair works, reinstating your property to its pre-loss condition as swiftly as possible.
A loss adjuster is appointed on behalf of the insurance company. When instructed by an insurance company, a loss adjuster will assess the damage to your property and, if they deem the damage liable under your insurance policy, will work with your insurance company to provide settlement figure. Loss adjusters are often appointed when the claim is of a significant size and will visit your property to determine the cause of damage.
Any loss adjuster appointed will be paid directly by your insurance provider, therefore, many claimants worry that they may not receive an impartial assessment. This is where a claimant may decide to appoint a loss assessor who will aim look after their interests.
Instructing Aspray (Sunderland) will provide you with a dedicated and experienced loss assessor who will put your interests first.
