What insurance do architects need?

Public liability insurance for architects

Public liability insurance is often an important cover for architects, as it can protect you if someone is injured or their property is damaged because of your business. Simply Business offers between £1 million and £5 million in cover, to protect you against this cost.

Professional indemnity insurance for architects

Professional indemnity insurance is a vital consideration for architects, as for all businesses that give advice or offer professional services to other businesses. It covers you in the event that you give faulty advice that causes financial loss to a client. You can buy professional indemnity insurance as a stand-alone cover or as part of a combined policy with other covers such as public liability insurance. At Simply Business we offer between £50,000 and £5 million in professional indemnity cover.

If you have employees, contractors, casual workers or temporary staff, you’re required by law to take out employers’ liability insurance. It’ll cover claims from employees who’ve been injured or become seriously ill as a result of working for you.

The average insurance claim for architects is £4,183 – could you afford this if the worst happened? (Average claim being £4,183. Based on data from 21 November 2018 - 20 November 2019, for comparison only. Cancellation charges may apply, please refer to our full terms & conditions.)

Architect insurance policy details

  • Make sure you read your policy documents carefully and that you understand any exclusions that may apply
  • Try to find out what level of professional indemnity insurance your clients might expect before you buy. This cover can be very important for architects, with standard requirements as well as special project measures to consider
  • If you employ people, even in your own home, you’re legally obliged to take out employers’ liability insurance. Not doing this could lead to a heavy fine

Another important consideration is where you’re based. Whether you work from an office or at home, our business premises options will help take care of the day to day risks, letting you get on with the job in hand.

It is a very good and easy to use service. I've been a customer for several years and the renewal system is very straight forward. I've always found the quotes competitive too. I'd definitely recommend Simply Business.
