New Homes Warranty
Are you a housebuilder selling new or newly converted homes?
Our New Homes Warranty is designed for house builders and developers building or converting properties to sell. It’s an insurance policy that provides 10 year cover for people purchasing a new home and as a result, it protects the investment against major structural defects. Having a new homes warranty is a requirement for mortgage finance, this is why it’s so important to get your development registered with us early on. Our New homes warranty is geared to cover developments with contract values of up to £100m, therefore we can easily cater for low and high rise housing developments.
Protek is a Consumer Code For New Homes user and this has several advantages. Not only is a consumer purchasing a property backed by a lender approved New Home Warranty, but they are also doing so in the knowledge that their developer is following best practice in respect of the marketing, selling and purchasing of new homes. As a result, the consumer should receive good customer service and a fair sales process. To be eligible for the scheme, housebuilders and developers need to make a registration application. This is a straightforward process, completely free and can be instigated online. Once accepted for inclusion on the scheme as a registered developer, you will be able to register your development sites quickly and efficiently.
