Legal expenses insurance can help fund unexpected legal disputes with contractors, neighbours and employees.
Then there are the hidden costs that are often forgotten, such as the disruption to daily life if you have to seek legal advice or attend court. Failure to act quickly can prejudice your position and result in you losing a dispute by default, which can also be the case if you can’t afford to pay for legal costs yourself.
If you have legal expenses insurance* in place, this need not be the case. It also provides 24/7 legal advice, so you can request information at a time that is convenient for you. And if the dispute escalates it may pay the legal costs too.
