Howden is the only Insurance Broker to hold the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyor’s preferred Professional Indemnity broker status. We have over 20 years’ experience of working with surveyors and place over £25m premium per annum on behalf of clients who range from sole traders to some of the world’s largest property and construction consultancies.
We can provide quotes to all sizes and types of surveying firms and in January 2015, in response to continued challenging PI market conditions for surveyors particularly valuers, we launched an exclusive product designed to provide all surveying firms paying over £10,000 premium, including those businesses that provide mortgage valuations, with access to competitive premiums and excess levels. Uniquely the product’s primary £5m of insurance is jointly underwritten by four ‘A’ rated RICS listed insurers. Sharing the primary layer between insurers eliminates over reliance on one insurer, spreading the risk and reducing the chance of insurers declining to provide renewal terms.

We are happy to provide a confidential, no obligation review of your firm’s PII arrangements, offering a simple, effective way of ensuring you are paying a competitive premium and checking your insurance cover is appropriate to the needs of your business. To take advantage of this offer, to receive a formal quote or simply discuss a query relating to PII, please call us on 0800 019 0373, our freephone number that rings directly through to our surveying team.
