No, and nor should you! This is one of most mis-understood and mis-quoted statements in all owner builder insurance vocabulary. In fact we go as far as to say: if any insurer claims they are about to cover any person, or sub-contractor(s) or individuals they don’t know or don’t have a relationship with; is just plain rubbish. Insurance Policy is made out to an owner builder (the insured). Insurance Policies protect the insured from claims, and that includes claims against sub-contractors and other third parties. Qtrust Policy(ies) will protect the owner builder from these claims within the Policy definitions. More information please contact our underwriters 1300-798-991.
