Finding your new home is exciting, whether you are moving or buying a house for the first time. It's a life-changing decision, one that can sometimes be stressful. Even when you have found your new home, there is still more work to be done. Furnishing, decorating and insuring your property can cost you both time and money.

At LABC Warranty, we like to make life a little easier for you with the added assurance that your home is covered by a structural warranty. This is different to your standard building and contents insurance as it provides you with cover for a wide range of structural defects that could, although rarely, occur during the first ten years after your home is completed.

Have you recently purchased a home covered by our warranty and want to know what this actually means for you as a homeowner? We explain what to look out for when you first move into your property and what to do in the event that you need to make a claim.
