Completed Housing Warranty
If you are selling a house that has been built within the last 10 years and it does not have a Structural Warranty in place, mortgage lenders will insist that you obtain one before they release funds to your buyer.
The Warranty provider will undertake a full structural survey of the existing building and identify any building defects prior to policy inception. These can then either be rectified or excluded from the cover.
If you built a block of 15 flats four years ago and now intend to sell, a Structural Warranty will be required by mortgage lenders who are providing finance to each new purchaser. Alternatively if you decide to refinance your existing loan with another mortgage provider, then it is very likely that lender will require a Structural Warranty.
