Surveyors

Our insurance expertise helps surveyors ensure the viability and security of their clients' acquisitions or development schemes.

We regularly work with surveyors to assist them in advising their clients on key areas of property risk management by adding our specialist insurance knowledge to their professional expertise.

Our services relate to a wide range of property and development matters where insurance provides financial protection and removes risk. For example, where a surveyor is instructed to advise a client on rights of light issues in connection with a development proposal, insurance can also assist in ensuring that the proposal does not falter as a result of protracted negotiations with third parties that could have been avoided had insurance been considered before contact was made with those parties.

Another example of when we can assist is where a surveyor's client commits to acquiring a property at auction and the surveyor's advice has been sought during the initial bid process without having appreciated the potential implications of title defects.
