Innovative Products

We strive to keep Property Protector as a market-leading brand by the innovation of new products and add-ons, some of which are unique to our products.

In 2008 we introduced Legal Indemnities, which is now a standard feature of our Residential Premier product, providing invaluable cover for Defective Title and Restrictive Covenents and many other title related covers, at no addditional cost.

Following detailed analysis of the other products, providers and pricing models in the UK marketplace saw the introduction of our Lite Product to the market in September 2008 which has proved a very popular addition to our range of products.

And more recently in February 2010 we have announced our groundbreaking Landlords Legal Solutions cover, providing 24hr Emergency Assistance cover for every Residential property we insure !

Our aim is to give you the opportunity to expand your Property Owners book of business by using an easy one stop wholesale facility underwritten by leading brand insurers and backed by many years of experience and expertise in this ever changing sector of the UK property owners market.
