Building Warranty Insurance

When a new house is built, it is usual to arrange an insurance warranty to cover any structural defects in the new works. In fact, if you have taken out a mortgage with a bank or building society, this will probably be a condition of the loan.

How much does building warranty insurance cost? As with any type of insurance, it is best to shop around and obtain various quotations. However, to give an extremely rough idea, expect to pay around 1% to 1.5% of the project cost. For example, a house costing £200,000 to build may cost between £2000 to £3000 for a building warranty insurance policy.
