Your new Ablehome is protected by a new home warranty - a 10 year insurance policy which protects buyers of new homes from structural defects.. This warranty is provided by the LABC (Local Authority Building Control), which is one of the major independent regulators for the new homes industry. The LABC endeavours to raise house-building standards and prevent structural problems arising.
It is a condition of most mortgage applications that a structural warranty is in place for newly built or converted properties.
Having an LABC warranty in place gives you peace of mind that the property has been built to the highest standards. with an LABC Warranty, we like to make life a little easier for you with the added assurance that your home is covered by a structural warranty. This is different to your standard building and contents insurance as it provides you with cover for a wide range of structural defects that could, although rarely, occur during the first ten years after your home is completed.
The LABC Buildmark pack will also be forwarded to your solicitor on legal completion, along with your insurance certificate which can be filed in the document box accompanying your new home manual.
