Are you aware that RMC directors may be personally liable for charges?

• Misleading statement / misstatement
If your apartment building has a lift, it may be beneficial to invest in engineering insurance. Many block of flats insurance policies include fire, accidental or malicious damage to a lift but not in the event of a breakdown. If your block of flats insurance brokers do not offer breakdown cover, specialist engineering insurance may help RMC to comply with legal requirements, such as regular lift inspection by a specialist.
Terrorism may seem unnecessary, particularly if your block is situated in a quiet or rural area. However, there were five major terrorist attacks in the UK last year. Also, due to the nature of counter-terrorism, successfully prevented terrorist attacks are not always widely reported. RMC directors could potentially face criticism in the event of a terrorist attack if they'd declined terrorism cover. This is not included in a basic block of flats policy but is available as a valuable"insurance extra"
