We have the expertise to meet your insurance requirements as a Property Professional

We understand that no matter whether you are offering advice on property acquisition, property rental, or estate management, things can go wrong at any stage of the process.

This is the main reason why insurance for estate and letting agents is essential. With the home-buying process constantly changing, the changes in legislation and the introduction of home information packs there is an increased opportunity for an error to be made.

With property litigation on the rise, there is an increased pressure for estate and letting agents to protect themselves. The property market has been volatile in recent years and since the drop in 2008 there has been a significant increase in the claims being brought against agents in the sales and lettings arena.

There are professional bodies which have rules relating to PI cover including mandatory cover or minimum limits required for their members. The main professional bodies with PI rules are as follows:

Frequently Asked Questions

Is an online office insurance policy suitable liability protection for my business as a tour operator?

No – As a tour operator or travel agent you are exposed to a unique set of liability risks which are not generally covered by online or standard office insurance policies. Please seek specialist insurance advice on the suitability of your planned insurance arrangements, as the liability risk can be very costly.

I have a Tour Operator Liability policy. Does this cover for me for force majeure events?
Typically no. a Tour operator liability policy is generally intended to respond to claims made against you which arise out of the unintentionally negligent acts of you or your suppliers. You may still have an obligation to pay out refunds or compensation in a force majeure event, but this would typically fall under what is termed ‘ Travel Disruption Insurance’

How do I protect myself against the effects of one of my suppliers going bust?
This can only be protected against under a supplier failure or scheduled airline failure policy.

We transport passengers in our own company vehicles. Are we covered?
You have to make sure that your motor insurance or fleet policy covers you for this. In the same way if you operate marine craft, you would need to have a marine policy in force to pick up claims for any injury caused whilst in board a boat or in a vehicle owned or operated by you or your staff.

I have received charge backs as a result of a fraudulent credit card being used to pay for a flight. Can I claim under my liability insurance?
No – this would be viewed as a commercial risk outside of liability insurance

If my computer systems have been hacked, what insurance would I need to help me respond?
This would be a specialist Cyber & Privacy Insurance policy

Does the Tour Operator Liability policy cover claims made against me as Director personally?
No – the tour operator liability policy is designed to respond to claims made against the company. To provide legal defence costs cover in the event a claim is made against you personally
