Housing associations

Comprehensive insurance cover designed for the unique challenges faced by professional firms.

Housing associations are especially susceptible to claims involving incidents with tenants. Our insurance solutions provide comprehensive cover for incorporated and non-incorporated risks. Our expertise and experience helps us identify and deal with the legal liabilities faced by all parties.

Coverages and services designed to support housing associations.

Markel UK offers a wide variety of coverages for professional risks such as those faced by housing associations. Clients also have access to additional services to help policyholders navigate everyday challenges. Depending on your coverage, you can opt in or add services you need.

Professional indemnity policies have traditionally been arranged on a standalone basis, but we provide a menu offering that allows other types of business protection to be arranged, often under the same policy – resulting in a robust insurance solution designed to minimise gaps in cover. Our menu of covers includes:

Responsibilities to third parties

Public and products liability, professional liability, entity defence, and management risks

Responsibility as an employer

Employers' liability, employment law protection

Protection of assets

Property damage, business interruption, money and personal assault, damage to portable property, fidelity, cyber and data risks, PR crisis management
