Emily Kindness commenting on public liability insurance…

“If someone takes you to court and you don’t have insurance in place, the legal costs and compensation payments can be financially crippling. Public liability insurance gives you valuable peace of mind, whatever kind of business you run.”

Emily Kindness commenting on employers’ liability insurance…

“As a legal requirement in most cases, it’s really important to ensure you have adequate employers’ liability cover in place. Employing one or many people adds a great additional responsibility and increases the potential risk of claims or needing to pay compensation. Ensuring you have the right employers’ liability policy in place provides vital protection for both your business and your employees.”

Emily Kindness commenting on landlord insurance…

“The cost of landlord insurance varies depending on things like the size of the property and the type of cover you choose. You can help to reduce the cost of your insurance policy by demonstrating that you’re on top of risk management. For example, by having ample security measures in place and ensuring tenant referencing checks take place, when bringing in a new tenant.”
