WaiverWaiver
Printable Page  |  Bookmark

In partnering with solicitors and conveyancers to make our protection available to purchasers and home owners, we have made a commitment to waive any rights and remedies or relief to which we become entitled in our policies by way of subrogation against you where a claim arises as a result of your negligence while acting for the insured in relation to an insured transaction under a Stewart Title policy.

This waiver is subject to the following:

  • The waiver will not apply where the solicitor’s or conveyancer’s conduct is grossly negligent or criminal, or they conspire with others who are grossly negligent or criminal;
  • The waiver will not apply unless the solicitor or conveyancer advises Stewart Title immediately upon becoming aware of a possible claim under the policy for which Stewart Title might be liable and does not attempt to settle the matter without first contacting Stewart Title.
