The Build-Zone Basic Warranty covers new builds, conversions, renovations and extensions and protects the policyholder against claims for loss or damage caused by major structural damage, defective weather-proofing and defective drains.
New-builds are a great opportunity for first-time buyers to get onto the property ladder and the demand for them is greater than ever. But, with new-build homes under scrutiny, it is very important that home builders and developers are following best practices.
Under our Self-Build Zone brand, we are market leaders in self-build warranty & custom build warranty provision. The Build-Zone warranty for self-builders has been specifically designed to cater to the needs of individuals who are constructing their own home to live in. It is suitable for new build, conversion, renovation or extension projects.
Demolishing and rebuilding an existing house is a great way to create a self-build project, especially in the countryside where good plots are scarce. But the economics of demolition and rebuild can be unattractive, unless you can build a much larger house than the one you’re demolishing.
As well as complying with the requirements of the relevant Building Regulations and other relevant Regulations and Codes of Practice, all new and converted structures benefiting from any Build-Zone warranty must meet the standards required by Build-Zone for the issue of a structural warranty.
Developer insurance is designed to provide cover for small-to-medium new build housing developments with a professional reinstatement cost up to £1.5 million; and larger projects on referral. Developer insurance is suitable for renovation, conversion as well as extension projects on existing properties.
FSCS have announced they will compensate Alpha Insurance latent defect premium insurance policyholders following the collapse of the deal arranged by BCR Legal Group Ltd to provide replacement cover for Alpha’s 10-year latent defect/structural damage insurance policies.
