Property Managers and Agents
If you are responsible for arranging insurance for blocks of flats, rental apartments or commercial buildings for third party building owners, you could become liable if a problem arises with that insurance…
Property managers and agents insurance can protect you against that liability.
Choosing the wrong cover for a property can have a knock-on effect for many parties, including individual residents or tenants, the freeholder, leaseholders, mortgage lenders, and the Residents’ Association or Residents’ Management Company. Each party can potentially suffer a loss and raise a claim.
The responsibilities and liabilities involved with arranging this type of cover can be onerous, and expert guidance is essential.

We use this experience to work with managing agents, Residents’ Associations and property owners up and down the country to find the most suitable cover for their unique circumstances.
