As a trade professional working in an industry with unique challenges, does your insurance match the risks you face?
You face liability for accidental damage to property, the cost of fixing faulty or defective workmanship and the risk of loss or damage to property from theft, fire and natural hazards.
In addition to this, builders have liability for 10 years under the Building Act and have a duty of care under the law to ensure that everything you build is fit for purpose. Mistakes, errors and omissions that result in a loss for your client (or anyone else for that matter) can be messy, and if lawyers get involved will be costly!
