The Wise man built his house on the rock, but the foolish man built his house on the sand – what do you do if there is no rock?
20th May 2016
Whilst the parable of the foolish builder is laden with meaning, being shamelessly commercial we have brushed over the metaphysical and focussed on the earthly importance of property.
As a concept property has many more nuances than may immediately spring to mind: there is tangible property, intangible property, intellectual property, private and public property (and that’s just from the introduction on Wikipedia)
Yet there is commonality. In the abstract, property is that which belongs to or with something, whether as an attribute or as a component of said thing. And it is this concept of belonging and ownership which underpins its central importance to modern society – an Englishman’s home is his castle after all…
Given this reality, it is perhaps no surprise that being on the receiving end of property disputes is a stressful experience (eclipsed only by the cost). Yet, QLP can help!
We have a new and unique solution for those on the receiving end of property claims. In combination with a speciality underwriting agency we can provide a policy to protect against all of the potential financial downsides of a claim, including legal costs, damages and even the financial consequences of injunctions (think business interruption etc.)
So if you are defending residential or commercial property disputes – from rights to light to dilapidation claims and everything in between – we back your exit strategy and mitigate your exposure from costs, allowing you to focus on achieving the best possible legal outcome without worrying about the costs.
Contact the team on 020 7626 0191 to find out more.
PS. Why not protect yourself in advance? We also offer policies to protect against potential future disputes where any legal risks have been identified. These may arise in connection with transactions or in the context of developments, for example: discovering lack of planning and building regulations, or the risk of right to light claims during a development. We could even help to mitigate the risk of unexploded ordinances…
