Many Professional Indemnity Insurance brokers, including the RIBA Insurance Agency (Arthur J Gallagher UK), and the insurance carriers they work with are rapidly moving to reduced and homeworking arrangements for their staff in the light of the developing COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak in the UK.
The RIBA has been advising members in our Practice Note that it is essential to make early contact with their insurance broker prior to renewal and to submit their renewal proposal in good time as it has been taking on average up to three times longer to secure terms in the current insurance market.
The emerging COVID-19 situation which coincides with the peak renewal period is likely to make the renewal process even slower. We therefore urge RIBA members to get in contact with their brokers immediately.
Please contact your broker at the RIBA Insurance Agency directly or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that letters and renewal forms sent by mail will not be received while the office is closed.
