Structural Warranty, Self-Build warrantyStructural and Self-Build Warranties

What is a structural warranty?

A Structural warranty, also known as  a self-build warranty or owner builder warranty, provides a 10 year insurance policy to cover your house against structural building damage.

Who is a Structural and Self-Build Warranty for?

A Structural warranty is for individuals building their own homes to live in as a main place of residence.

Type of properties covered with Latent Defect Insurance

Structural warranty covers any new build, conversion or major refurbishment of a residential home including (but not limited to) houses, flats, bungalows, barn conversions.

Why Choose a Structural Warranty

Due to changes in building warranty requirements, it is now expected that all new build residential properties are covered by a ten-year structural warranty recognised by the Council of Mortgage Lenders. High street lenders and nearly all other providers now insist on a specific type of building warranty for a property that has been converted or had major refurbishment works carried out. All warranties provided by BuildSafe are:

Approved by Council of Mortgage Companies
Accepted by all High street lenders
Ten-year insurance against major structural damage
Can be taken out even if project has started
Full technical monitoring through the build period.

This means choosing BuildSafe for a structural warranty will help you raise finance in the coming years if you choose to sell your property.

Self-Build Warranty Requirements

The property has to be built by you to be lived in and must be occupied for at least the first 12 months after completion.
