The SelfBuild Insurance 5 minute guide to our products

For many people, a self-build build is a one-off project, that combines the opportunity to create a unique and personal home with a set financial and logistical risks, not forgetting the emotional roller-coaster.

While self-build insurance may on the face of it seem similar to other more familiar types of insurance, such as car insurance or home insurance, it has a unique set of considerations, and insurance extends beyond the build phase.

Our products explained

5 minute guideWhile it may appear that insurance is needed only for the build or once you live in the property, this is not always the case. Insurance considerations may start before you have purchased land, and extend beyond moving in.

Over the last 20 years talking to self-builders, we’ve developed a deep knowledge of self-build insurance needs, from Site Liability insurance, through the build and to a 10 year Structural Warranty.

Our product set is designed to be a complementary set of products that can be tailored to individual needs. In our short SelfBuild Insurance 5 minute guide to our products, we look at each of our products in turn, what they’re designed to cover, and how they relate to each other.

If you’d like to look at a typical self-build project from the early stages of setting a budget, all the way through the build and to living in the completed property, and how we can help make this a little less stressful, why not take a look at our SelfBuild Insurance guide to a stress-free build.
