Why is professional indemnity required for professions in the construction sector?
Professional indemnity insurance offers protection against potentially disastrous financial loss and is a compulsory requirement of many professional bodies part of the construction industry. Claims are often found where the intention of our clients have been good, however through human error or lack of judgement – an error is made which directly affects the time-line and project, erupting into a huge claim of financial loss.
If you are a member of RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors), NAEA (National Association of Estate Agents), ARLA (Association of Residential Letting Agents) or the ARB (Architects Registration Board) you will know that mandatory rules apply regarding professional liability insurance. Many other professionals may find they are required to hold and maintain cover to comply with the terms and conditions of their contracts, particularly if involved in local authority or government contracts.
