Architects Professional Indemnity Insurance
Like everyone involved in the building industry, architects have been affected by legislation changes over the past 20 years.
The Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996 for example, was designed to tackle problems such as excessive delays in claims and costly disputes within the industry.
Because of these changes, this means claims made by architects have altered within the industry as the profession is relied on more and more.
Negligence on design or failure to seek the correct planning permission are common issues and you need to ensure that you are protected against the mistakes, whether it was your fault or not.
