Residential Policy

The Q Policy offers Residential Developers & Builders with a unique opportunity:

real support and a smooth, integrated process for insuring your properties

….all by switching your Structural Defects Warranties to Q!

It is an innovative approach to Structural Warranty provision and provides you with a real alternative to the traditional warranty for your quality housing developments.


The main aim of our approach is to improve the quality of construction in the UK and we achieve this by collaborating with Developers & Builders who really commit to building quality properties.

Our expertise in housebuilding means we know from years of experience that there are a great many challenges involved in getting a site into development and subsequently sold. So we will work with you and your teams (not just policing your sites), to help identify and rectify known problems during the design & construction process, through our comprehensive site-survey schedule, guaranteeing a minimum of 8 visits per property and providing support and guidance throughout the process.


We know that with this hands-on approach, we can also give you more detailed & useful management information to assist you in achieving your business objectives, ensuring that time and time again, you are able to deliver quality properties for your customers - not forgetting that they are our mutual customer!


The Q Policy has been developed with all of the constraints of housebuilding in mind, ensuring that we can offer you a whole lot more than just insurance cover if you need it. Ours is a highly risk-managed, quality focussed, flexible insurance, designed to meet the needs of any project, and essentially if your new-build properties comes with The Q Policy, it means they are quality properties which have been built under the supervision of our "right-first-time" surveying team and underwritten by quality A-rated insurers.

Q is the mark of quality - stand out from the crowd!
