Structural Warranty Quote Process – Helpful Guide

Read through our useful guide on the information you will need to obtain a Structural Warranty Quote for your self-build project, property conversion or property renovation.

If you're a self-builder or first time developer constructing a new home you may know you need to take out structural insurance to cover you against any structural defects that may occur in the first ten years after the building work is completed, but you may be unsure on exactly what information you will need to obtain a Structural Warranty quote and what the process will look like.

For most new builds the process of taking out Structural Warranty and obtaining a structural insurance quote will begin before construction work starts for two main reasons.

Firstly experienced self builders and developers know that they need a Structural Warranty to protect their investment and to attract and convert buyers if they are looking to sell the property within the first ten years, and secondly if they require finance for their project they know that UK banks and other lenders will require a Structural Warranty to be in place before they will release the funds of a self-build loan.

By working with a Structural Warranty firm such as CRL at the start of the process it allows our fully qualified Surveyors to examine your plans and make visits to you on site to ensure that all the latest building regulations are being met.
