Buying a new home can be daunting enough without having to worry about structural or latent defects, that’s why it’s law in the UK that all new builds require a new home warranty structural defects insurance policy. This covers the new build home against a variety of issues including:
Defects in design
These refer to any defects in the design of your new home that may be discovered or arise during the build or after completion of the project.
Defects in materials
Materials may not show any signs of being defective at the time of building, but problems may arise after completion. Our new build warranty covers the majority of materials used for a standard of ten years from completion of your project.
Defects in workmanship
Our new build insurance covers a variety of workmanship issues that may arise, giving you hassle free new build insurance protection should you encounter any problems.
Covering these key new home insurance areas ensures that new homeowners have peace of mind and developers are insured should anything go wrong.
CRL new home warranty covers defects in design, materials and workmanship for 10 years as standard.
On completion of construction, the developer will receive a final new home warranty certificate, insuring their new home against latent and structural defects. This certificate should then be passed on to the owner when they move in.
