Make a claim

If you are in the unfortunate position of having a problem with your new home the action you take will depend upon the section of your LABC Warranty that currently applies. Not all policies contain the same sections of cover.

To find out which sections of cover currently apply please refer to your Certificate of Insurance. Full details of your cover can be found by reading your Certificate of Insurance in conjunction with your policy document. If your issue falls outside of our policy cover you may also want to consider the Consumer Code for Home Builders.

To learn about the cover that applies to your home and how to make a claim, please select the section of cover below that applies to your home (you can find this information on your Certificate of Insurance).

Sections of cover

Defects insurance period
During this period the developer is responsible for rectifying any defects (which are deemed to be a failure to comply with our Technical Manual).

Who are LABC Warranty?  

At LABC Warranty, we provide structural warranties to protect you, the homeowner. Having arranged warranties since 2007, we have become the warranty provider of choice for some of the country's leading developers. Our years of expertise in surveying, construction methods and claims mean that we can apply this knowledge to ensure quality in construction. What's more, all our policies are underwritten by 'A' rated global insurers, giving you the reassurance that we'll be there when you need us most.

Why do you need a structural warranty?

Our LABC Warranty protects your new home from structural damage that may occur during the first ten years after your home is completed. Mortgage lenders are more likely to release funds if homes have a warranty in place, helping you to secure a mortgage. If you decide to sell your home before your warranty expires, our LABC Warranty is fully transferrable, making your property more attractive to buyers and lenders.
