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.
