Subsection (1) of the Cadastral Survey Act 2002 states that if an error is found in a cadastral survey dataset affecting any title under the Land Transfer Act 1952 or tenure under any other Act, the Surveyor General may, in writing, require the cadastral surveyor responsible for the error to undertake the work necessary to correct the error.” This potential “personal liability” for the consequential losses arising from this circumstance is able to be covered by our policy.

Ensuring you have continuous Professional Indemnity cover is vital for protection against future claims. Download more information about The Importance of Continuity of Indemnity.
