Self Build 10 Year Structural Warranty

  The Self Build 10 Year Structural Warranty is an improved and re-branded version of The Self Build Zone Warranty. Itís an alternative to an Architect's Certificate,  NHBC Buildmark, NHBC Solo for Selfbuild, Zurich Municipal Custom Build or Premier products. It is a brand new Structural Warranty designed for new build, conversions and completed properties and is backed by two major insurers. Build-Zone is currently going through the process of lenders awareness. This can be a lengthy process and once achieved can take some time to filter through the lenders' systems. More info

Why do I need a Structural Warranty?


Technically known as structural defects liability insurance, a structural warranty will pay out in the event of faulty design, materials or workmanship, therefore covering for the risks that arenít included within standard buildings insurance. A structural warranty will also cover legal fees associated with proving that your contractors are negligent. More info

An Architects Certificate alone would not cover you in the event of a defect, it would be down to you to take legal action against the architect and prove that the structural fault was as a result of their negligence. The legal fees involved in cases like these can soon mount up, so by taking out a structural warranty policy with Self-builder youíll reduce the risk of having to pay unexpected fees should something go wrong. Many lenders now insist that a 10 year structural home warranty is in place before theyíll consider you for a loan so it should be one of the first things to consider when embarking on a self build.
