Structural warranty insurance made simple

Whether it’s assembling teams of architects, engineers and builders, project managing, or overseeing construction, property developers wear a lot of different hats.

From initial design right through to completion, property developers are juggling multiple responsibilities, which can be very time consuming for smaller developers who might have little or no admin support.

When it comes to finding the right structural warranty insurance for your project, particularly a project that ‘doesn’t fit the mould’, searching the market to ensure you have the appropriate level of cover, and to reduce your risk, can be a labour-intensive task.

That’s where BuildSafe steps in.

At BuildSafe, we’re committed to helping our clients get the best quote in the market, which best suits their needs, without having to take time out of their schedule.

We understand smaller developers’ unique challenges and the importance of finding the perfect balance between support, speed, responsiveness, and the best value quote.

A thriving market with high demand

The UK government has set a target of building 300,000 houses per year, but the rate of housebuilding continues to decline. High demand and low supply, driven by demographic and socio-economic shifts, have led to a surge in demand for housing, reaching unprecedented levels.

According to research by JLL, there could be a shortfall of over 100,000 homes in the London build-to-rent market alone over the next ten years, making the property development market look more enticing than ever.

The increased appetite for housing and changes to the planning process and permitted development rights suggest that now is a fantastic time to be a property developer.

Why BuildSafe is the perfect partner

Of course, running a company and building a successful property development business can be rewarding, but it’s also demanding and potentially risky with so many moving parts. Ensuring the right team is in place to deliver your vision takes time.

All that effort could be at risk if you fail to have the right insurance in place from the outset – the longer you wait, the more expensive your warranty cover is likely to get. Not having the appropriate coverage can also impact how easily potential buyers can secure a mortgage.

BuildSafe is here to relieve that pressure. Our in-house consultants work with developers on projects across a range of sectors, starting with build values of around £200,000. We take pride in our tailored approach and commitment to smaller developers, ensuring all our clients receive the same support and attention, whatever the size of the project.

Expertise, efficiency, and support

Our process makes your life easier: we do the heavy lifting and shoulder the administrative burden, allowing you to focus on building your business. When you choose to work with BuildSafe for your structural warranty insurance, you are guaranteed:

  • Bespoke market analysis: Our specialists analyse the market and make recommendations on the best fit for you, tailoring our approach to your unique needs and requirements.
  • Clear timelines: We’ll provide you with a clear timeline, so you always know what to expect, ensuring an efficient and straightforward process.
  • Expert advice: You’ll have one point of contact throughout, offering expert advice and guiding you through the process with our specialist consultants.

Building warranties themselves can be quite admin intensive, due to the number of documents and information that needs to be supplied to building warranty providers. Having one point of contact, with experience of your company, and who knows which questions to ask, means you can streamline the process, saving a considerable amount of time.
