What is Non Negligence insurance?
Non negligence insurance or JCT Insurance – also known as JCT 21.2.1 insurance and JCT 6.5.1 insurance – is designed to offer cover to the contractor or property owner if a neighbouring property should suffer damage that is not attributable to negligence.
In a construction project, despite all safety precautions and regulations being followed, damage can still occur to neighbouring properties due to unforeseen circumstances. In this case, it can be difficult to attribute the damage to negligence. Non negligence insurance covers the costs associated with such damage.
Non negligence insurance cover will be a sensible addition to insurance cover in contracts of any size involving excavations, piling or demolition, neighbouring structures, and contractual requirements.
