Markel Insurance

Legal expenses insurance for property owners

Markel has been a leading provider of commercial legal expenses since 1992 and has developed a specialist policy tailored to the needs of property owners in the UK.

Individual property owners are exposed to a number of potentially costly risks. Tenants refusing to leave or comply with repair obligations, sub-standard maintenance or renovation work, allegations of the landlord failing to maintain appliances and HMRC enquiries can all be problematic.
Markel’s cover provides legal advice and support from qualified lawyers when disputes arise.

More than just insurance cover

Markel is determined to offer wide support to ease our client’s daily legal and financial challenges.

As part of their insurance cover, complimentary employment, health & safety and commercial legal advice from our experienced lawyers is just a phone call away.
