What does this mean for you?
If you are licensed and you are reported to the complaints board, a range of penalties could be imposed, which could affect your license. Therefore, it is vital that you are able to defend yourself against a complaint and be able to meet any resulting fines the board may enforce. Builders Public Liability Insurance policy is designed to do exactly that for you and helps you to protect your business.
If you are not licensed and carry out licensed work then any existing Builder Public Liability cover you have is unlikely to respond!
As well as complaints, you could face third-party claims for financial losses incurred as a result of errors or omissions whilst undertaking design, supervision or the completion of the documentation in relation to Restricted Building Work.

Business Liability Risks
Liability Insurance covers the insured from 3rd party claims arising from the insured’s negligence causing loss or damages to a 3rd party’s properties, business, reputation or liability for an unintentional breach of a Statute or a professional mistake when providing advice. Liability policies are either “Claims made” or “Occurrence” policies.
Light commercial / rural
Industrial / heavy commercial
policies, such as Professional Indemnity and Directors’ & Officers liability, operate on the basis that cover is provided when a claim is made and notified within the period of insurance regardless of when the claim originally occurred. You are effectively insuring for a 12-month window and the date of the claim and/or circumstance is the trigger.
such as General Public & Products Liability, Statutory and Employers liability and Bailees liability – provide cover when the event that gives rise to the liability claim occurs within the current period of insurance. With Occurrence policies, you are ensuring specific periods of insurance and those periods remain insured for life even if you don’t subsequently renew or replace the insurance cover. The date of the occurrence (damage or injury) is usually the trigger.
