JCT 6.5.1
Clause 6.5.1 (and other similar clauses) may be found within building contracts. It is also known as non-negligent liability. It was previously called JCT 21.2.1.

The requirement for this insurance is often invoked where there is an adjacent building and there is a danger that damage could arise, even where every possible precaution is taken to avoid such events occurring.

If this clause is specified, it may require insurance cover to be arranged for damage/injury arising from specific events, such as:

  • Subsidence

  • Heave

  • Vibration

  • Weakening or removal of support.

  • Claims Examples:

  • Damage to adjacent premises following weakening of support

  • Piling work causing vibration damage to adjacent premises
