Insurance you can be sure of

If you are involved in property development – whether that’s building new properties, converting or refurbishing existing ones – then Latent Defects Insurance (LDI), usually known as a structural warranty or building warranty, is often a necessity.

Latent Defects Insurance is a specialist insurance, often required by development finance lenders, mortgage lenders, investors & long-term tenants. It can protect newly built & newly converted properties against any inherent defects in design, workmanship, or materials for a period of 10 or 12 years (soon to be 15 years), and for up to the full rebuild cost of the property.
