As an architect or surveyor, you’re relied upon for your advice, precision and judgement. A fault in your measurements or design could result in major financial difficulties for your client and even put people’s safety at risk. If a client or member of the public decides to take you to court, you face potentially high legal costs, even if you’re not at fault.
At Direct Line for Business, we understand the pressures of working in your industry and we know your insurance policy needs to meet your very specific needs. We also understand that every business is different; that’s why we offer Architects and Surveyors’ insurance that you can customise.
You can use our online tool to select the type of cover you want. For example, you could choose to only take out professional indemnity cover or bundle it with other options such as contents insurance or business interruption.
You can pay monthly with 0% APR in your first year and there’s only one renewal date to remember. It couldn’t be simpler. See our list of available cover options below.
Potential legal costs aside, there are also other risks involved in running a business. You might need to provide insurance cover for your employees or expensive specialist equipment like high-spec PCs and surveying equipment.
Appearances matter when you’re hosting clients; you may also want to arrange cover for your office with all its valuable art and furniture.
Meanwhile, if your premises is affected by an insured event such as fire or flood, and trading has to cease, we can cover the costs of getting your business back up and running. Your working life is complex enough so we want to make choosing your insurance as quick and simple as possible.
There are different types of business insurance and you need to select the kind that works for you. Include any of the following cover options in your Architects and Surveyors’ Insurance to create a policy that precisely fits your firm’s needs. These covers are subject to policy conditions and limits.
