Untapped market for brokers? (Insurance Age roundtable)
- Date: 02/07/2012
Insurance Age: In a special roundtable event hosted by Insurance Age, brokers, legal professionals, loss adjustors and BLP Insurance met up to discuss the oft-overlooked issue of latent defects insurance.
In a wide-ranging discussion, the experts touched on the state of the construction market, how property owners were often faced by difficulties making claims against contractors who had gone out of business and whether brokers were aware of the solutions offered by latent defects products.
The panel also explored how the insurance industry helps to get buildings fit for purpose quickly with time lost on litigation minimised and what the future holds for the specialist line.
