Why use an insurance broker
Register Compensation Commission
Many guesthouse owners have started making use of disclaimer notices over the past few years.
In principal, the appropriate use of disclaimer notices at a guesthouse establishment makes good sense – it can effectively place limitations on the type of claims which a guest may be able to make against a guesthouse owner and in so doing so it also limits your insurer’s exposure to having to deal with such claims and therefore helps keep the premiums low.
The new Consumer Protection Laws which are about to be in-acted, deal specifically with disclaimer notices. They list the characteristics and describe the proper use of disclaimer notices. They in fact goes as far as to state that should a person who uses a disclaimer notice not comply with these requirements, that the notice will not be of any use in a legal sense. This means that the Courts will refuse to recognize a disclaimer notice which does not comply with the requirements of the new Consumer Protection Laws.
