MARSH BUILDPROTECT is a 10 year policy with cover running from the date of technical certification or the first sale or transfer of the premises.

It meets the cost of putting right the premises in the event of insured damage occurring in the structural works.

The cover also protects against breaches of certain building regulations committed by the developer which lead to a present or imminent danger to the physical health and safety of the occupants of the premises. (However, should the premises not comply with building regulations and no present or imminent danger to the physical health and safety of the occupants exists, the cover will not respond).

Residential latent defects insurance

We aim to provide peace of mind when it comes to protecting your property.  

Our policies are underwritten by SCOR UK Company, the UK branch of SCOR SE – an AA- rated global insurer. Policies are underpinned by an independent technical appraisal carried out by BLP aimed at minimising defects right from the design stage. 

Terms and scope of cover are flexible, and always cover the full rebuild value of the construction project. You’re not at risk of losing a hefty deposit or other form of security, because we don’t ask for one; and our products cut through the complicated tangle of responsibilities, responding first if a defect manifests post completion.
