A guide to structural warranty insurance for new build homes
Build-Zone has released a comprehensive, step-by-step guide on structural warranty insurance for new home warranties.
As a leading structural warranty provider, we provide insurance for all types of developments, from single private dwellings to large-scale residential, mixed-use and commercial schemes. Our Build-Zone New Home Warranty is approved by the majority of UK lenders and is recognised industry-wide.
Build-Zone A-rated insurers
Build-Zone only uses secure, A-rated insurers, providing much-needed peace of mind in a market that over the last few years has seen a number of unrated insurers go into liquidation, leaving policyholders without cover. This, in turn, has left them without a valid structural warranty, breaching their mortgage terms. Our range of structural warranties are effective for 10 to 12 years from the date of practical completion.
In this ebook, the company details what is covered under a New Home Warranty, the period of cover, the defects insurance period and the structural insurance period, along with special conditions and exclusions.
It also looks at the Build-Zone Code of Conduct for Home Builders, which was been set up to ensure the interests of homeowners are protected before, during and after the purchase of their new home.
In addition, there is information on what happens if a homeowner has to make a claim and the process for dealing with any issues or complaints.
