able to assist: the cost may be met by your uncle’s estate. ●● Q. I’m planning a big party next summer for my daughter’s wedding, but I read that there can be all sorts of pitfalls in inviting people on to your property. Would our insurance cover us against accident claims?
A. There’s no reason you shouldn’t go ahead with your party as long as you take a few precautions. Check your garden to make sure there aren’t any obvious hazards, such as loose paving slabs, unsafe walls etc. Also check your household insurance policy and confirm there’s an occupiers’ liability clause covering you against accidents to visitors; most policies contain such cover. If you’re planning a bouncy castle or something similar take special care; you could be held responsible for any mishaps unless you supervise its use and follow the manufacturer’s and suppliers’ instructions.
