Your legal liability as property owner for accidental bodily injury or disease to Third Parties or their property.
From time to time you may engage employees in respect of the general maintenance and upkeep of the property. Employers Liability provides cover in respect of your legal liability to employees for bodily injury or disease arising out of and in the course of their employment with you.
If you have any lifting apparatus at your property such as passenger lifts or wheelchair lifts you are legally required to have these inspected every 6 months under current Irish legislations.
(Safety, Health & Welfare at Work (general application) Regulations 2007 S.I. No. 299 of 2007 and the Safety, Health & Welfare at Work (general application) (Amendment) Regulations 2012 S.I. No. 445 of 2012)
Accidents emanating from overdue inspections can potentially lead to serious legal action against the management company and its Directors. It should be noted that a maintenance contract is not a substitute for statutory inspections.
We have a panel of insurers who offer statutory inspection services and can also provide insurance cover in respect of Sudden and Unforeseen Damage to lifts at your property.
If a third party were to suffer financially as a result of the actions of a Director or Officer then they may bring legal action against the Directors, Officers and / or the management company itself.
Directors’ & Officers of the management company can be held personally liable for their actions and unlike a limited company their liability is unlimited. Without holding Directors’ & Officers Liability insurance they are effectively risking their own personal wealth and the future of the organisation, since the financial implication of any legal action can be disastrous.
