News story about building cladding legal case
The outcome of the much talked about legal case regarding the cladding of the Lacrosse building that caught fire in Melbourne has been announced.

24 February 2019 | social
It has been distressing to see the devastation that has been wrecked upon Townsville and the surrounding farming community recently. Fortunately, our clients in the area are all okay.

5 things to know about insurance and the holiday season

Santa and insurance
1. Property is at its most vulnerable over the holidays. Make sure you double-check your security, potential fire causes and storm protection before any planned closures. 2. Most standard business policies include a free increase to sums insured over the Christmas period. Make sure your sums insured are up to date though, as we hate seeing claims not being fully paid due to underinsurance. 3. Don’t forget your virtual property too. Regularly ensure your website and other IT systems are up and running and free from any cyber threats, especially if you make sales online.
