Latent Defects Insurance
Latent defects insurance can help to cover the cost of repairs or rebuilding if structural damage appears months or years after the practical completion a new-build or conversion project. Latent defects may be caused by a fault in the building’s design or construction, or by faulty materials.
This type of damage can be hugely disruptive, costly and complicated, and could have a serious impact on your business. That’s why it makes good commercial sense to mitigate the risk with building defects insurance – it can be essential for property developers, funders, and owners or tenants.
The security provided by a latent defects policy can encourage investors and can accelerate sales and lettings, and could help to make the future sale of the property easier.
