Whether it's after a pileup, an unjustified dismissal or a dispute with your tenants - to make sure you're not only right, but also get justice, you often need help from a lawyer. But good legal advice is expensive – especially if the dispute cannot simply be settled, but ends up in court. Luckily, there is coverage for this in the form of legal insurance.

The key points

  • A legal protection insurance is an individual thing, the individual components should be well adapted to you and your life situation
  • Deductibles should not be avoided at all costs, as it lowers the overall cost
  • If you rent out a property you should definitely cover yourself with a special legal protection insurance for landlords
  • As a builder you do not have much choice, but you should still take out coverage
