How does The Q Policy work?
We provide structural warranties that exceed expectations, supporting our customers throughout the build process with industry experience, technical knowledge and a thorough, helpful, responsive approach.
Our high standards enable our partners and inspire our industry to do more to promote and deliver quality construction across the UK.
Overview for Developers & Builders
Our structural warranties aim to be easy to follow and provide certain insurance cover for the owners of the buildings for 10-12 years following completion of the build period. Each warranty is slightly different, but typically they include cover for the following:
Two Years post completion of build
During the two year period following completion of the build, the Developer or Builder is responsible for arranging the repair of any Defects identified and reported by a Policyholder. In the Affordable Housing policy, Private Rental Sector policy, Bespoke Residential policy and Commercial policy, this is known as the "Defects Liability Period".
In the Open Market Residential policy, this period is known as the Customer Service Guarantee Period and also requires the Developer to follow the requirements of the Consumer Code for New Homes.
