Buying a new home is a big decision to make and that’s why when you buy a new build home from us you get peace of mind with an LABC Warranty which gives you a 10 year structural warranty on your new home.
Who are LABC?
LABC have been providing warranty cover for over 10 years, working with some of the largest house builders and commercial contractors in the country.
All LABC policies are underwritten by ‘A’ rated global insurers, ensuring that Howbeck Homes and our buyers are protected for the duration of the policy.
As a founding member of the Consumer Code for Home Builders, home buyers will benefit from having the added protection offered by the code.
LABC cover is accepted by all leading UK mortgage lenders helping Howbeck Homes and our buyers secure finance to purchase their new home.
How Does an LABC Policy Work?
An LABC warranty is valid for 10 years from the date on the certificate and there are two main parts to this:
The first two years of the policy following legal completion is called the Defects Insurance Period. During this period, Howbeck Homes are responsible for rectifying any defects which are deemed to be a failure to comply with LABC’s technical manual.
Years three to ten is known as the Structural Insurance Period. During this period, if you need to make a claim on your policy, you will need to contact LABC’s claims team who will assess your claim for you.
