It is important for Wren Members to be sure that their contractual liabilities to their clients fall within the scope of their cover. Standard forms of appointment issued by a professional association registered in the UK (e.g. RIBA, ACA, ACE) are covered automatically by Wren. However, many clients require their consultants to sign bespoke appointments which often contain more onerous liabilities than those standard forms.
Wren’s in-house legally qualified contracts team can review appointments, collateral warranties and other related contractual documents which Members may be asked to sign, to advise whether they contain terms that are unduly onerous or may place the Member outside cover and to assist Members in negotiating appropriate changes to the documentation.
Wren has negotiated standard agreements with many well-known developers, contractors and solicitors which can be used when appointing Wren Members and is continually working to expand the number of such agreements.
