Key Features and Benefits

If someone establishes, or attempts to establish, that they own or have an adverse legal right over that part of the property which is registered with possessory title, this policy provides cover for the following, up to your selected limit of indemnity *:

  • damages and compensation
  • the reduction in the value of the property
  • any sum paid with our consent to free the property from any adverse third party right
  • costs and expenses with our consent.

The policy automatically covers subsequent owners of the property and mortgage lenders, and remains in force from the day you issue it without any time limit.
