Cincinnati Insurance Company v. Cannon Ranch Partners, involved the denial of a motion to compel the appraisal of a property damaged by a sinkhole.  There was a dispute between the insurer and the insured concerning a sinkhole loss.   The 2nd DCA explained that  “in evaluating the amount of loss, an appraiser is necessarily tasked with determining both the extent of covered damage and the amount to be paid for repairs.”  The Court explained that the method of repair required to return the property to its pre-loss condition is a part of the appraisal process and does not constitute a coverage question.  Thus, a disagreement on the appropriate method of repair was found to also constitute a dispute over the amount of loss which is subject to appraisal.
