An inspection from a qualified inspector needs to be done with the proper inspection form filled out to determine eligibility of the current policyholder. Through the Universal Property & Casualty Insurance Company, there is an approved vendor list to be sure you receive the correct inspection by a qualified inspector which will reduce the time and expense that UPCIC takes to process the policies.
