The fundamental aim of The Q Policy is to improve standards of construction in the UK and by offering a more frequent and comprehensive inspection schedule than any other warranty provider in the UK, we are of the firm belief that being on-site is the only way to properly monitor and enhance quality construction, working hard to eliminate defects before they can cause problems for property owners.
STRUCTURAL DEFECTS INSURANCE
- why do I need it?
Latent Defect (commonly referred to as Structural Defect)
A defect which remains undiscovered at the date of completion (of a property) but manifests itself during the period of insurance by way of actual physical damage.
Insurance is an important safety net in any building process; protecting your investment and giving Customers, Property Investors & Developers the peace of mind they need to plan properly and develop properties of the highest of standards.
In the construction process, even with the best of intentions, sometimes mistakes can happen, which can cause costly problems in the future.
That’s where Q comes in – providing Structural Defects Insurance to cover potential defects from the design or construction process which could be expensive to put right.
Ultimately if a property has been constructed with an insurance product behind it, the design and construction have to meet certain standards, which means that the quality you would expect of a new property meets all relevant standards.
