Self build insurance cover starts the moment you exchange contracts on the property or plot of land and during the construction or renovation process right up to the point the home is completed and signed off. Our comprehensive self build site insurance covers perils such as fire, theft, storm damage and accidental damage. It also provides cover for accidents that occur on site to members of the public or contractors working for you under the liability sections of the policy.
ProAktive are an experienced self build insurance provider and cover is tailored to suit the type of project you are undertaking. We can provide you with self build insurance cover for projects where work is being carried out by builders, trades or as part of a self build or DIY renovation project.
A 10 year structural warranty on your project should be in place before your build starts. If your build requires a mortgage your lender will require one and should you look to sell the property within 10 years the buyers lender will also require a warranty. Additionally a warranty will provide you with peace of mind as the design, workmanship, materials or components that go to make up your new home will be checked by an experience surveyor.
The ProAktive structural warranty is accepted by the top 100 lenders in the UK.
