With all registered architects required to hold professional indemnity insurance, to cover any error or omission that could lead to a claim being made, and in today’s blame-culture world, it is more important than ever to ensure that you have adequate insurance arrangements in place.
You will know from experience that architects may be commissioned to design an entire building, or a small niche part of one, and it is becoming more and more common in today’s litigious culture that either all parties to a construction project are included in any claim, regardless of their input as to the error, or perhaps that party that seems easiest to pursue, again regardless of their particular input as to the error. It is therefore vital that you choose a broker that has intricate knowledge and understanding of the way your profession works, in order that they can source not only the most competitive price, but also the most appropriate policy wording. Your Broker has to be alert to the fact that cover may be different from wording to wording and from insurer to insurer, and be able to understand the particular and specific requirements of your business.
