More and more builders are asking about indemnity insurance…
So what is it and what does it actually cover? Is it something your business should have?
Indemnity insurance aims to “protect business owners and employees when they are found to be at fault for a specific event such as a mistake”. Errors & omissions indemnity or professional indemnity insurance (they are the same thing) covers your liability for mistakes you make that cause someone else a financial cost.
It is becoming extremely important for building firms due to the increased willingness among the public to take legal action if they are unhappy with the building work. This has been further reinforced by the recent changes to the Building Act.
Make sure you are clued up on Indemnity Insurance and why your business needs it!​ Refer to your building business mag for more info on this and related articles……..
