The DAS UK Group has launched into partnership with Norwegian insurance agency, Legal24, to underwrite a product for homebuyers.

Home Buyer Insurance enables the purchasers of property in Norway to be able to exercise their legal rights to claim against the seller should any problems arise after purchase. In Norway, the seller of a residential property is personally liable for 5 years after the sale for any undisclosed defects in the property that could have affected the purchase or the purchase price.

Mark Robson, Strategic Underwriting Manager, DAS UK Group commented: “Whilst there has been insurance available for the seller for a number of years, a product for the purchaser is a relatively new development in the Norwegian market.  DAS were approached by Legal 24 with a proposal to enter into partnership with them on this new venture. It is an exciting development and our underwriting experience together with the fact that we already hold a licence to underwrite business anywhere in the EEA made this a perfect opportunity for the DAS UK Group.”

Quantitative and statistical literacy – the ability to understand, apply, visualise and infer from data – underpins technological literacy and yet receives very little attention from those who encourage innovation in the legal curriculum.
