How long can we expect AAA to extend the claim now that we are proceeding to want to build on the property. How do we proceed to get it in writing because the extension she gave us in October ends in March. We looked for another parcel but had no luck. AAA has agreed to use the code upgrades for some things on the property that were not up to par. For example well pump compliance (fire suppression requirements) pressure compliance and reinstating permanent electric. This is now being done with our upgrade money according to formula. We have been receiving ALE benefits for vacation loss use until March. We do not think we can extend ALE but would like to extend claim for rebuilding. What is reasonable. How do we ask them to extend that in writing.
