Our People

Chris Hitch joined J M Glendinning in December 2017 as a Director, to set up the real estate division. Based largely in Birmingham for the majority of his career, Chris’s background has been with the global insurance brokers, the last one being Lockton Real Estate & Construction where he led the Midlands real estate business.

Construction and Real Estate Insurance

Experienced in all classes of property, Chris has dealt with student accommodation, PRS, large residential and commercial portfolio’s in excess of £300m down to single properties. He has also managed the portfolio of one of the UK’s largest LPA Receivers. Additionally he has worked with many developers ensuring their development projects are fully protected from risks such as rights to light, judicial review, environmental impairment liability, contract works, which can cover loss of revenue in the event that the scheme is delivered late as a result of an insured peril and latent defects

On any purchase, refinance or development project we will work in a proactive and pragmatic manner with the advisory team, providing insurance solutions in all of the following areas.

Rights to Light,

Judicial Review,
Restrictive Covenant,
Defective Title,
Environmental Impairment Liability,
Contract Works, including 6.5.1. insurance
Latent Defects,
Property Owners Insurance

Engineering Inspection and insurance

We work directly with client’s lawyers, funders, project consultants and contractors to ensure all the insurance obligations are met with a robust insurance policy

Areas such as Composite Insurance, First Loss Payee, non – invalidation, non – vitiation are just some of the everyday requirements that our clients have. These are usually, non-negotiable conditions that many brokers find difficult to agree. The relationships we have with our markets allow us to have these endorsed quickly and easily.

  • A bespoke policy wording service that matches the requirements of the lease
  • Certificates and invoices within 48 hours of placing cover
