Catastrophic fires have, for over three months, escalated to unprecedented levels in Australia with many beholding the tragic loss of lives, property, wildlife and livelihoods.

Today, CEO of CoreLogic International, Lisa Claes released a statement concerning recent bushfires in Australia. 

"Across the country, people are coming together to support those impacted by these terrible events and we are pleased to let you know that CoreLogic is also making a substantial contribution. We are not only donating to the Australian Red Cross and WIRES to support these efforts, but will also match all employee dollar donations for the bushfire appeal," Ms Claes assures.

"In addition, we would like to acknowledge the significant sacrifices being made by volunteer firefighters across multiple fire zones. As a consequence, CoreLogic employees who are members of the Rural Fire Services are being provided with paid volunteer leave to support their efforts. On top of that, we will also be working closely over the coming months with our community partner Habitat for Humanity Australia, providing employee volunteers to assist with recovery and property clean-up activities in the Cuddlee Creek community in South Australia, where over 85 homes have been lost.

"We have already established a Bushfire Response Team to accelerate a number of initiatives that will help customers impacted. That includes a program to help ensure that our customers (and their customers) receive the assistance they need at this difficult time. All our programs for financial institutionsinsurance companiesgovernment agencies and property owners are outlined on this web page."

CoreLogic offer a free of charge on a one-time basis to financial institutions, insurers and property owners.

Helping Financial Institutions

CoreLogic can help identify customer properties that may have been impacted by the bushfires. They can also help find the property's recent estimated value, whether it was listed for sale or rent, and the estimated rebuild cost of the property.

Helping Insurers

CoreLogic can help identify customers whose properties may have been impacted which enables insurance organisations to reach out proactively to them and to priorities their inbound enquiries. 

Helping Government Agencies

CoreLogic data can help assist state and federal government agencies by identifying and providing information about those properties that may have been impacted. 

They will help government agencies understand population displacement and dislocation, validate relief payment claims, provide economic impact analysis, assist with tax assessments for individuals, businesses or corporations, and identify longer-term health impacts.

Helping Property Owners

CoreLogic's can help simplify the task of estimating rebuild costs using their Cordell Sum Sure Calculator. This is an intuitive digital tool that uses CoreLogic property and construction data. It is available as a free-to-use service to help answer pressing concerns regarding bushfire related damagers.
