Most buildings insurance policies taken out on blocks of flats will cover damage to passenger lifts as a result of an insured peril such as fire, accidental damage and malicious damage. However these policies do not normally extend to damage caused by the breakdown of the passenger lift or to the legal requirement to have lifts regularly inspected.
Enter the specialist Engineering Policy, which many of the property owners insurers offer. Such policies are designed to help property owners comply with their legal obligations to have their lift inspected by a competent authority at six monthly intervals. A record of these inspections must be kept and/or a certificate issued.
