Structural Warranty

We are accredited warranty auditors for several warranty providers, which means we can complete site audits for your project on their behalf.

Our reports are sent to the provider and will be part of the information collated which leads to a Structural Warranty certificate at the end of your project.

We work on a range of projects, including New Builds, Conversions & Self-Builds.

What is a Structural Warranty?

Also known as a Structural Defect Warranty or Structural Warranty Insurance. These are insurance backed policies designed to protect against defects in new
buildings, normally for a period of 10 years after completion, where usually the insurance company pays out for a defect.

Whilst a Structural Warranty is often purchased by the developer before construction begins, it actually protects the homeowner from structural damage should it occur during the period following completion.

Having a Structural Warranty will help you sell your property once it is completed as the vast majority of mortgage lenders and banks require one to be in place before they will provide a mortgage on a property.

Please note that the policy is not through Survey 7 Limited, we do not have control over the areas covered within the policy. Survey 7 is not a warranty provider, instead we are the auditors who carry out the inspections on behalf of a number of warranty providers, it is those providers who set the requirements of their policies and are to be contacted should defects occur.

For further information, please see our FAQs section and our T&Cs.

Need a Structural Warranty quote?

We do not charge the client/developer for our audits, instead we charge the warranty provider and invoice them directly. This is because each provider has their own key stages to be inspected and therefore our fees and number of audits can alter depending on the provider chosen.

To enquire further, please Send us a Message providing us with all the information prompted and we’ll pass your details onto the warranty providers, who will contact you directly to discuss their policies further.
