What does the cover do?​

Legal indemnity is a single premium insurance to protect buyers, mortgage lenders, and future property owners from legal disputes concerning the ownership, occupation, and use of land and buildings.

Our policies cover the owners of a property and their mortgage lenders for the legal costs of:

  • Defence
  • Enforcement action
  • Alternative solutions or reduction in market value if the defence is unsuccessful.

Bespoke commercial and development covers can include:

  • Abortive costs
  • Delay costs
  • Loss of business or rental income
  • Site restoration costs.
