You need to check with your IP as to what he will agree to, but I would argue that the insurance payout is for a specific purpose, i.e. repairs and is to be used for that purpose only. Some insurers will pay contractors direct, which would help. Best to get the IP on side.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.

You should be fine as not benefiting but just replacing damaged goods etc.
Just keep your IP updated on what has happened and what will see going forward in regards to money in and out of your bank account.
Main thing is not to stress and it may also be worth speaking with your IP as may need assistance (payment breaks) if you have had to take time off to rectify issues
