Latent Defects Insurance (or also known as Warranty Insurance or Structural Warranty Insurance) is usually required by Property Developers, Finance Providers or New Build Contractors, amongst others, for both Commercial and Residential Properties.

In principle, an Insured can be anyone who has an interest in the property.

The policy covers Faulty Design, Workmanship or material problems or Defects for up to a period of 12 years of practical completion by repairing, replacing or strengthening the property.
