Through many years of experience, Hiscox has built a leading reputation in providing professional indemnity (PI) protection for surveyors. As an approved insurer for the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), our cover will protect a surveyor’s financial interests and professional reputation. Our experienced claims handlers know how to protect our clients' business and will work hard to settle disputes quickly and efficiently.
Our policies include a number of features such as:
broad civil liability cover - if it’s not excluded, it’s covered
automatic cover for referrals to arbitration, adjudication or an ombudsman
outstanding fees - we will pay outstanding fees where we feel we can avoid a larger claim being made under the policy
loss of documents - we cover surveyors for loss or destruction of a client’s documents or data
criminal defence - we will pay any defence costs if a surveyor is charged under any statute or regulation applicable to their business, e.g. the Construction, Design and Management Regulations (1994), until wrongdoing is proven.
Flexible payment options including interest-free direct debit (saving up to 6% compared to some insurers)
Option to mix and match a range of other insurance covers to produce a tailored policy – this means clients only pay for the exact protection they need
Clients may also qualify for continuous cover – avoiding the need for annual proposal forms
