What does buildmark cover?
From exchange of contracts to legal completion.
Buildmark provides insurance protection if you lose your deposit as a result of your builder becoming insolvent, leaving them unable to complete your home.
The most we will pay is 10% of the original purchase price or £100,000, whichever is lower. If your deposit was greater than this, you may not be fully protected.
Years 0-2 after completion
For the first two years after legal completion.
This is the builder warranty period. Your builder provides this initial warranty and agrees to repair defects that are not general wear and tear or maintenance issues.
We provide an independent resolution service and guarantee should the builder not do this.
After the builder warranty ends, a further 8 years insurance up to a maximum of 10 years from the completion date.
We provide insurance protection if there is damage to your home because the builder failed to build certain parts of your home to the NHBC requirements.
Contaminated land cover
We also provide insurance cover for contaminated land if you receive a statutory notice for your land or a statutory notice could be issued because of the condition of your land.
Building Regulations cover
Additional cover for failing to comply with Building Regulations applies to some policies.
