Build-Zone new home warranty, built by experts

10-year new home guarantee – yours from day one

Building new homes is a big investment. It takes time, money and hard work to reach the point of sale, so it’s crucial you protect your new build from day one with the right home warranty.

A New Home Warranty from Build-Zone is a new build structural warranty that covers your new build property (constructed within the last two years) from structural issues that may be caused by defects in design, material or workmanship.

New home builders insurance – essential for home sales

Even with the best of care, building houses is complex and sometimes things go wrong. Latent structural issues may take years to appear and can be extremely expensive to fix. As a result you may struggle to sell your new build house without a warranty, because the majority of mortgage lenders won’t take the risk of releasing funds for a home that’s not insured.

Developer warranties like ours provide a guarantee to lenders and homeowners that if any structural issues arise after completion, the costs of repair are covered. New home warranties last for 10 or 12 years, so we only use insurers who are independently rated as secure.

Available on new builds, conversion projects and mixed-use developments, our new home warranty is accepted by the majority of lenders in the UK – making it much easier for you to sell your new builds.

Technical services support from the start

To make sure every new build we cover is built to the highest standard, we have an in-house technical team, Build-Zone Survey Services Ltd (BZSS), who can help you save money on your premium.

BZSS can work with you from the start of your project – carrying out a set of technical audits by an approved inspector throughout the build to minimise the risk of any issues arising in future. They can also arrange building control with one of their partnered approved inspectors, with every inspection audited by BZSS for your peace of mind.

The sooner BZSS are involved, the bigger the benefit for you
