Collateral warranty review
Working with policyholder to avert allegations
The other parties involved were the employer, who wanted their house altered, and the builder, who was responsible for the actual build work. The employer falls out with the builder over the quality of the building work and refuses to pay. Builder walks off site. Both parties push the insured (and in the case of the employer threatens the insured) to resolve the matter. Insured expects one or both of the parties to blame the insured's quantity survey work.
Markel worked with insured to deflect criticism and to try and get parties around the table to hammer out the issues. Allegations against our insured were averted and each party has walked away from the matter.
