The LABC Warranty provides structural warranty insurance for new homes, conversions, and refurbishments, ensuring they're built to defined technical standards. It covers major structural defects for a period, typically 10 years, from the completion of the property. While standard home insurance covers risks like fire, theft, or flood damage, the LABC Warranty specifically addresses defects in the design, workmanship, materials, or components of the building.

An LABC Warranty offers several benefits: Peace of Mind: It assures homeowners that their property meets strict technical standards, reducing the risk of structural issues in the future. Mortgage Lender Approval: Many mortgage lenders in the UK require a structural warranty (like the LABC Warranty) before lending on newly built or converted properties. Risk Management: The LABC Warranty inspection service helps developers manage risk by ensuring the construction meets quality standards, reducing potential claims. Resale Value: When selling within the warranty period, having an LABC Warranty can enhance the property's attractiveness to potential buyers.
