Why take out Construction Insurance?
Improve Selling Process
Credible Construction Insurance will make selling property a breeze. Not only will the selling process will be quicker but buyers will feel more secure with their investment.
Lower Repair Costs
When something goes wrong in the basic structure of a building, the cost of repairs can soar as high as £40,000. Having Construction Insurance will protect you against this kind of eventuality.
Assist With Mortgage Approvals
In the UK, mortgage lenders require this insurance if the building is under 10 years old.
WHY IS THE CRL THE BEST CHOICE?
CRL also provides retrospective cover in the following cases:
- BUILT WITHOUT CONSTRUCION INSURANCE
These are properties for sale that were built without Construction Insurance. This extends to buying a property in which the developer didn’t have to obtain Construction Insurance during the building process.
- FIXED-CHARGE RECEIVERS & INSOLVENCY SITUATIONS
When entering a distressed sale or solvency, you can get a fast fix when you are a fixed-charge receiver.
- DEVELOPERS ENTERING ADMINISTRATION
If a property is left without obtaining the completion certificate and is uninsured, borrowing money against the development is difficult when the developer has chosen to enter administration.
