Self Build Warranty

Our Self Build Warranty has been designed for individuals building their own homes. Contractors who are working on Self Build developments can also apply for this cover on behalf of their clients.

Unlike an Architect's Certificate or Professional Consultants Certificate, Structural Warranties are insurance policies, providing you with cover in the event of damage caused by a defect in your property.

To be eligible for this scheme, you must be planning to live in the property for a minimum of one year following completion.  If you are going to live in the property for less than this, please apply for our New Home Warranty.

Features of our cover:

  • 10 year Structural Warranty cover
  • Cover available once construction has commenced
  • Cover as standard for additional costs, professional fees, removal of debris and alternative accommodation
  • Waiver of subrogation for RIBA or CIAT registered Architects

Please note that should you have a builder involved in your project, you will be covered by the Builder Liability Period for the first 12 months of the insurance period.  This means that the builder is responsible for rectifying any defects that may occur within this time period.
