BuildCare Structural Warranty

Self built houseUnfortunately, many self builders think that an architect's certificate protects them from structural defects and other problems - and provides some kind of insurance. This is quite wrong. An architect's certificate merely states that the building meets the required minimum standard. In other words, should any structural fault arise as a result of the architect's negligence then it's down to the homeowner to take legal action and prove this. It goes without saying that this can be a lengthy and expensive process - it's much simpler and more effective to claim on an insurance policy which covers specific occurrences. In other words, you really need a structural warranty.

As you’d expect, BuildCare Structural Warranty is highly competitive and great value for money.  What’s more, because our policy involves a series of key inspections, the surveyors’ certificates from these technical audits can be used to confirm the stage that your project has reached, allowing you to request the release of your next stage of funds.  And should you decide to sell your property in the future, you’ll find that our policy will give potential purchasers the peace of mind that the building was completed professionally and is covered by an insurance backed structural warranty for 10 years from completion – many banks and building societies are unwilling to provide funds on new, or newly converted properties less than 10 years old, unless covered by a structural warranty.

The BuildCare 10 Year Structural Warranty is administered by Build-Zone and offers extremely competitive premiums as well as excellent cover which is recognised by the Council of Mortgage Lenders and accepted by lenders.
