  2. Contractual Conundrums

    Whose responsibility is it to arrange insurance cover for pre-existing buildings during building alterations works? It’s essential that both the builder and the property owner sort this matter out prior to any works commencing. If you don’t and the owner’s property is damaged, a dispute is almost certain to follow. Click here to find out more. Then call the team at MBA Insurance Services on 1800 150 888 to ensure you’re suitably covered.
