Writ QuoteWrit Search Facility (MoA) Contracts

Members who take out additional cover for MOA risks are entitled, free of charge, to writ searches in Australia, Canada, England, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Singapore and South Africa to check, prior to purchasing a ship, whether any writs have been issued and which have yet to be served upon the ship. These jurisdictions allow a writ to survive the sale of a ship and this facility provides an invaluable opportunity to reduce the risk of purchasing a ship which subsequently turns out to have outstanding claims which could result in the ship being arrested after the sale.
