The excitement of making a dream home out of your flat, upgrading your store to modern standards or prepping up your business for the digital age can often overtake any thoughts being given to insurance. 

Even the most ordinary accident can lead to prohibitive costs by damaging your contract materials such as decoration materials, flooring, wallpaper, sanitary ware and so forth, impacting the value of your property and triggering compensation claims from third parties such as your neighbours, which could hurt your budget. To avoid extra financial burden, getting the right insurance before construction starts is vital.

AXA’s Contractors “All Risks” Insurance is a flexible and simple insurance designed to give comprehensive coverage for property owners or tenants involved in renovation projects. Generally, the insurance covers damage to  contract material at the construction site and liability to third parties for maximum protection, it also comes with the option to cover liability to third parties alone.

Product Features

Section 1 - Material Damage

AXA’s Contractors “All Risks” Insurance offers protection against accidental damage to contract materials for the renovation work at the construction site due to fire, flood or unforeseen accidents during the contract period. The sum insured is set according to the contract sum.

Section 2 - Liability to Third Parties

A contractor or the principal (such as the property owner or tenant) is generally responsible for bodily injury and property damage suffered by a third party due to negligence during the contract period. This liability, which may also trigger legal expense, will also be covered by our policy. We offer protection against such liability ranging from HKD5,000,000 to HKD30,000,000 to fit with your need and budget.

Before starting your renovation project, you should know not only in detail about the level of coverage you need, but also the premium you are prepared to pay. Contact our financial advisors now for a free consultation.

Major Exclusions

  • War risk, terrorism, sanctioned countries, asbestos and so forth
  • Any renovation works that started before insurance
  • Liability arising out of or in connection with erection and/or dismantling of scaffolding

For details of all exclusions, please refer to the Policy.

Additional Protection

Employees' Compensation

Explore our solutions to ensure you get sufficient coverage to meet potential claims under the law.

Case Sharing

Case 1

An extensive interior renovation project was carried out in an apartment in a well-known large-scale residential complex. The project was covered by our Contractors “All Risks” Insurance, which came into effect before work commenced.

• Contract SumHKD300,000 (no scaffolding work involved)
• Sum Insured for Liability to Third PartiesHKD10,000,000
• Premiums paidHKD1,650 (covers both Section 1 and Section 2)
• Compensation paidHKD300,000

During the contract period, the floor collapsed as the fittings of the bathroom was being demolished, causing damage to several electrical appliances and the sanitary ware of the downstairs unit (that is, the third party). The costs associated with this accident included reconstructing the floor between the two bathrooms, repairing the bathroom and replacing the electrical appliances of the downstairs unit. Other claims included the hotel expenses incurred by the residents of the downstairs unit which became uninhabitable due to the accident, and various items such as the inspection service fees of the Buildings Department. Overall, the compensation reached approximately HKD300,000.

Case 2

In preparation for moving in, an entire house was renovated, including the replacement of water pipes. The project was covered by our Contractors “All Risks” Insurance bought before renovation started.

• Contract SumHK400,000 (no scaffolding work involved)
• Sum Insured for Liability to Third PartiesHKD20,000,000
• Premiums paidHKD2,000 (covers both Section 1 and Section 2)
• Compensation paidAXA defended on behalf of our insured and paid all legal expenses.

After coordinating with the building management office and shutting down the water’s main switch, the contractor installed new water pipes inside the insured unit and then notified the management office to re-connect the water. Everything was fine for a few days until the management office alerted the owner (our insured) that the water pipe connected to his unit had burst, releasing a large amount of fresh water. Flooding the corridor, the water flowed into the elevator pit and damaged 3 elevators. This accident resulted into a claim of approximately HKD500,000 against our insured by the Owner’s Occupation.

Upon receiving the claim from our insured, AXA’s Claims Department immediately commissioned a surveyor to investigate. The investigation showed that the section of the water pipe that burst was located outside the insured unit. Since the contractor only replaced the pipe located inside the insured unit, the accident cannot be attributed to the negligence of our insured or his contractor and that they should not be liable for any loss from this accident. AXA defended on behalf of our insured and paid all legal expenses.
