Commercial Legal Expenses Insurance
Commercial, Landlords, Personal, Tax
Legal Expenses Insurance provides cover for legal expenses incurred by the appointed representative representing the insured in respect of any of the insured events covered by this insurance policy. This includes employment disputes, health & safety prosecutions, tax protection and other sections of cover. The policyholder will have telephone access to qualified consultants who can provide practical advice regarding general legal issues as well as our web-based service on human resource and health & safety compliance issues.
Commercial Legal Expenses Insurance operates on a “claims made” basis. This means that this policy covers claims that arise and are notified to the Insurer within the current Period of Insurance.
This Legal Expenses Insurance product is available to insurance brokers and intermediaries only.
All Vantage legal expenses insurance products are supported by our in-house underwriting, claims and administration teams, backed by advice lines staffed by qualified consultants and solicitors employed by companies within our corporate group.

Rent Indemnity Insurance
Designed for residential landlords’, our Rent Indemnity insurance product extends the Landlords’ Legal Expenses cover to provide indemnity for rent arrears. In the event that the tenant fails to pay rent that is contractually due, the policy will pay those rent arrears directly to the landlord whilst action is taken to remove the tenant from the landlord’s property. Under our standard cover, rent arrears will be paid up to the point at which vacant possession of the property is obtained, but we are also able to offer an enhanced version of the product that provides additional cover for two months after vacant possession is obtained.
Personal Legal Expenses Insurance
Designed for individuals, our Personal Legal Expenses insurance product can provide cover for employment disputes, consumer contract disputes, domestic property disputes, and tax investigations.
