Claim Examples

Statutory Licence Protection

A Management Rights Operator comes under investigation from the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) for taking incorrect commissions on rental yields, the OFT pushes for the operator’s licence to be suspended subject to further investigation. The manager and their legal representative believe that they are not at fault and within the confines of their licence. The Legal Expenses policy responds funds the lawsuit against the statutory body to ensure their licence is not suspended and their livelihood inadvertently affected.

 

Personal Injury of an Employee

A Management Rights Operator is required to attend a Workplace Health & Safety hearing for the injury to one of their employees whilst in the course of their employment. The time investment away from the business and cost to attend the hearing is substantial, the Legal Expenses policy responds to cover the cost that attendance has on the manager’s business.

 

Discrimination Protection

The Legal Expenses policy responds to the Insured’s costs, attendance of hearing expenses and the tenant’s costs when the decision is made against the manager.

 

Contract
