On 4 May 2016 The Enterprise Bill received Royal Assent to become The Enterprise Act 2016. Among its provisions affecting the handling of insurance claims, will be the addition of an implied term to all insurance policies effected from 4 May 2017 that settlement of valid claims will take place within a reasonable period. For the first time this will allow policyholders to claim damages for claim payments that are unreasonably delayed.
