We’re pleased to offer a free service to policyholders engaged in the Construction professions including Clerks of Works, Estimators, Project Managers and Planning Supervisors.
Non-standard appointments and collateral warranty documents can sometimes contain more onerous and stringent conditions which can increase your liabilities and may expose you to risks of a claim.
To assist in dealing with these, Air Underwriting, has arranged the following free Contract Review Service with DWF LLP solicitors.
The contract review service service provides free legal advice to your Policy holders on appointments, collateral warranty documents or novation agreements to assess whether the terms of these are likely to affect their Professional Indemnity Insurance protection. The free service is limited to 1 hour per Project documentation.
DWF LLP has confirmed that one hour should be sufficient to identify likely insurance coverage issues, assuming documentation of “standard” length. Any time spent over 1 hour or in relation to any other matter would be charged to your Policy Holder with all such proposed charges notified and agreed up front before any advice is given.
DWF LLP will advise on any appointment and related documents, but only respect of matters likely to cause a problem with the protection under the Professional Indemnity Insurance policy. More general liability advice and commercial advice would need to be arranged between your policy holder and DWF and would be separately chargeable.
This review service is intended to provide practical and informed legal support for your Policy Holders when faced with challenging documents from their Client and assorted third parties such as Funders, and Tenants. It is hoped that sensible project document terms will benefit both Glemham and your Policy Holders to mitigate the risk of claims.
