Allstate Let My House Rot

Update: Allstate Made it Exceptionally Difficult Through the Claims Process. I Got Declined and Then Lost My House.
There is Still A Battle To Be Won, however. It Must Be Replaced. See How it all happened...
Sypnosis: Due to a missing receipt, Allstate won't approve and my house is rotting away. Help! Please sign this petition.
- ALLSTATE'S DOCUMENT DEMANDS: Despite their recent change in tone (due to my complaints), their demands haven’t changed. They still insist I must produce a receipt I do not have and insist I speak to their lawyer. They want all sorts of documents (some of which are not available anymore, they even asked for water bills except I have a well (why on earth is that on their checklist when their adjuster can establish the water damage?)).
- Prior clients with similar complaints are viewable HERE.
- Perhaps it is because they are fishing for loopholes. In theory, the more that is required, the less of a chance at winning. Can the act of denying multiple claims be the reason for huge companies having so much capital?
- ANOTHER DEMAND - Since my multi complaints to government agencies all I have received is a softer tone but they have emphasized that I need to produce a long list of *17+ items which is an intimidation tactic (see below).
- Despite my demonstrated intent to cooperate, they insist that speaking to their attorney will still get me nowhere due to missing oil receipt and the additional 17+ items. NOTE: The oil tank was NOT EMPTY. With such demand, Allstate has determined that I'll never get passed first base. They won't deny or approve. Instead added 17+ more items to their demand. They have me just where they want me. If I denied, I can sue. They are manipulating each move. I could have never imagined - I hired A-state - they got paid every month yet I can't get passed first base. All while my house is becoming totaled.
- INDUSTRY COMPETITORS: I've learned that many of Allstate competitors offer an easy process. They just send an adjuster to confirm the disaster. They receive contractor bids and pick one. In record timing, they pay out. What is wrong with this picture?
- CONCLUSION: I need funds for my house before it is totaled. I need to gut it out. I loved this house and lived in it for 9 years. Giant companies and lobbyists like AS should be forced to maintain and/or exercise ethics that favor their clients. If the account isn’t delinquent then I should win automatically. I purchased this policy and have had it maintained for over 10 years.
Now, I cannot utilize my policy because Allstate digs for imperfections in the process. What is insurance good for otherwise? Unless they can say that I hosed my house down, there is absolutely no reason why I should be treated this way. The only thing I don’t have is an oil bill which was purchased by someone in my past. I just don’t have a copy or know who it was purchased from. Regardless, the boiler has oil in it. They need to pay up and it is a matter of urgency. No one should have to go through this.
