Product Advantage

Comprehensive Cover
Insurance will cover architects up to the specific amount which they may become legally liable to pay, proceeding from any claim made against them by reason of any neglect, error or omission which may happen while rendering their professional service.
Legal Support
It will cover architects for defence fees in case of a legal case. It will also reduce the probability of loss of income arising from a legal case. In a few cases, the insurer will take on the obligation to fight your case.
Original Retroactive Date
All claims pertaining to professional indemnity after the start date of the policy will be covered. For instance, if someone has continuous policy for 2 years and is sued for errors and omissions during designing of a building during that period, it will be covered in this policy. This condition is held true only when timely renewal is done and SecureNow will help in doing so.
Hassle-free Business Operation
Do not worry about legal liabilities. Focus on your creative work and let the insurance take care of legal costs.

Why Claims Get Rejected?

Pre-Policy Claims

The policy bought will not cover any architectural work carried out before the starting date of the policy. Claims that arise from an issue known before the insurance was bought are rejected. If there is a break in the renewal of the architect’s professional liability insurance then the retroactive date is reset to the start of the new insurance.

Incorrect Information

If you provide incorrect information at any stage, it will affect your claim. Providing false information in the proposal form or fraudulent claim can make the insurance void and all claims will be forfeited. Claims can also be denied if you hide or omit material facts to reduce premium. For example, you may not have told the insurer about a pre-existing fault in a building design.

Deliberate Meddling With Design

It includes any deliberate acts to meddle with the design of a building to lower costs. For instance, reducing the steel or concrete quality for cost savings.
