Understanding Self-Build Insurance:

Self-build construction insurance serves as a vital safeguard against latent defects or faults that may arise in your property, which couldn’t have been discovered during a regular inspection before completion. It provides essential protection by covering a wide range of risks associated with self-build projects, such as major damage, alternative accommodation costs, professional fees, remedial work, demolition costs, moving and storing, developer insolvency, and land contamination. Furthermore, most major lenders require a suitable warranty to be in place before providing a mortgage for self-build projects.
