New Build Warranties

The Society requires a New Build property to be built under a recognised warranty scheme which provides insurance for the housing unit for ten years post completion against defects in the design, materials and workmanship.

Currently the Society accepts:

  • NHBC
  • Building Life Plans
  • Premier Guarantee – New Home Warranty Scheme
  • HAPM
  • CRL Warranty
  • Build-Zone 10-year warranty
  • LABC Warranty Agreement

The Society may consider other warranties providing:

  • have been/will be constructed under supervision of a professional consultant;
  • have been/will be constructed by a local builder who has a reputation for first class workmanship with the works being inspected by the Local Authority and with building control certificates being issued;
  • A full structural survey can be carried out by an appropriately qualified person at a cost to the applicant;
