Can I claim for hail damage 12 months ago?

Hi Michael
The agent has carried out two further inspections since this happened and nothing was reported. I even have a photo they sent me in the August 2018 report as the pull cord on the fan/light in the conservatory was broken and I can see the holes in the photo. I will say that you could mistake the holes as being dirt or moss from the main roof looking from the inside out which is probably what has happened. As said before it is a lesson learned and i shall not be taking any action against the agent. A comment the agent said to me which did not help was "you must have a keener eye than that of our inspector" Clearly

Can I claim for hail damage 12 months ago?

Thanks Ian and Jason. Since raising the question I have contacted my Insurance company which is the same one I have been with since letting the property and after giving them the facts they have come back saying that they are unable to help due to the time it has taken to be notified. They have suggested I may have a claim against the letting agent for missing the damage and there lies a dilema. I own a personel search business and the letting agent gives reciprocal work to me and I have a very good relationship with them. Also looking from inside the conservatiory you could not see the holes as the hailstones only pentrated the first layer of polycarbonate and so no leaks at the moment. It was only looking out of a bedroom window that they could be seen and I ask myself if this is something that letting agents should have done. What's next climbing the roof to check the chimney is ok. Anyway I am awaiting a reply from my agents and have also asked the insurance company to point me to the section in the policy where they have decided to refuse a claim being submitted as I was unable to find one that mntioned any time constraints
