Self-build warranty

for your next building project

Our self-build warranty protects individuals who are building their own home to use as their main place of residence for at least 12 months following completion.

A self-build warranty offers long-term financial protection against the cost of repairing structural failures and de-risks your project. It can also protect you if your contractors become insolvent before the construction work finishes. Our structural warranties go hand-in-hand with our building control services meaning we can handle the whole warranty process for you seamlessly with the same person inspecting and surveying your build to ensure it fully complies with the required building regulations. We have strict quality control procedures so you can rest assured you are in safe hands with a HomeProof self-build warranty.

Our structural building warranties are widely recognised by UK mortgage lenders and are available for projects that are already underway or completed, although we’d advise you to get cover before any work commences. Cover includes both newly built homes and conversions, with 10-year cover as standard from the insurance start date.

Self-build warranty cover overview:

  • 10-year cover
  • Two-year builder guarantee period
  • Eight-year insurance period

Cover includes:

  • Contamination of land
  • Alternative accommodation
  • Additional costs/fees

Our experienced team is here to guide you through the process and find the right cover for your new home. And if you’re looking for advice or support with building control, we can help.
