Professional indemnity insurance for surveyors
As a surveyor, whether you carry out inspections of established buildings, certify plans or structures, provide regulatory advice on construction matters or issue building permits to commence building you are providing advice or a professional service, so you are at risk of a dissatisfied client lodging a claim against you. This means you need professional indemnity insurance.
Every year many surveyors are accused of not delivering their service adequately. While these accusations may or may not be accurate they need to be defended. Defending against these accusations can be expensive.
Suitable professional indemnity insurance for surveyors can provide cover against such claims, including the cost of defending the action.
As it is often impractical for surveying firms to have 100% control of the actions of all their staff at all times, professional indemnity insurance protection can help surveying businesses function day in day out with increased confidence by providing cover for staff.
