Builders Public Liability Insurance

Nearly all construction sector contractors and subcontractors will be required to hold Public and Employers Liability insurance as a stipulation of their contracts.

Even if you are operating without a signed contract, perhaps undertaking work for domestic properties, you should consider holding this policy as it will indemnify you in the event of damage to a client's property, or injury to a third party whilst delivering the services.

No matter how careful you are or how highly skilled you might be, there is always a risk that a customer or client might deem that you have caused some damage in providing your services, and mistakes can happen.

Protecting you and your business is where we come in. You can purchase Public Liability Insurance at indemnity limits of £1million, £2million and £5million, suitable for a range of building businesses. Please refer to your contract and assess your risk before purchasing.
