A commercial property let to tenants was damaged when one of the tenant’s employees accidentally drove their car into the building causing significant damage. We liased with the client, his nominated contractor, the tenant and the vehicle insurers. We alerted the tenant to the possible breach of the alarm warranty and protections warranty under their contents policy whilst the building repair work was underway and suggested suitable local alternative venues for the meetings scheduled to take place in this room. As the building was insured by the same insurance company that insured the car, we recognised that if an impact claim was made under the property owner’s buildings policy, there was unlikely to be a real recovery of the repair costs and our client’s claims record would be prejudiced. We therefore pursued the claim against the car insurers via their offshore claims centre, and a full recovery of the repair costs was made. We also offered to act for the tenant in recovery of their alternative accommodation expenses.
