Residential PropertyResidential Property Insurance

We possess outstanding knowledge and experience in managing residential property insurance portfolios. We review your property portfolio and claims history and should your claims experience prove an issue, consider options that may include programme restructuring, and our claims management system gives us the ability to lay out the impact this would have on your programme. 

Legal IndemnitiesLegal Indemnities Insurance

Legal indemnity policies are designed to protect you against either a specific legal defect or an unknown title risk. This risk transfer creates asset protection and often allows a situation to be resolved in a more cost and time effective manner than standard legal routes. Our specialist team can provide covers from highly unusual legal defects to more standard risks such as restrictive covenants, access rights, rights to light and portfolio due diligence covers.
