NEW HOMES WARRANTY

WHAT IS A NEW HOMES WARRANTY?

A New Homes Warranty is designed to protect homeowners of newly built, converted or refurbished properties in the first 10 years from structural defects. If you are planning to sell your newly built property after completion you will need this warranty. Our New Homes Warranty also covers conversion projects of all scales, including office to residential conversions.

 

To support transparency when it comes to selecting a structural warranty provider we will issue Insurance Product Information Documents (IPID) for all warranty schemes with any new quotation. Click here to view the IPIDs for our New Home Warranty Scheme.
