Why are some private building control inspectors facing problems?
Approved Inspectors are required to carry two forms of business insurance from a scheme approved by the Secretary of State or Welsh Ministers – Professional Indemnity and Professional Liability insurance.
We understand that one of the two insurance brokers supplying cover has pulled out of the market leaving only one remaining provider.
While some Approved Inspectors have been able to transfer their policies, some have unfortunately not been offered suitable cover.
This is a commercial issue and could affect thousands of building projects.
