  1. I'm comparing the market with warranties at the moment and another thing I've realised you need to look at @JulesFormosa is their accepted list of lenders. I've so far had quotes of 11k selfbuild zone, 7.5k build care which is build store and their inspectors are also self build zone very confusing, then just over 5 thousand from Advantage AHCI and Protek. This list (of accepted lenders) can apparently change from time to time, but ones that are more widely accepted by all the big banks are obviously favorable. A very expensive piece of paper but I can just imagine how it ticks a very big box if you do want to sell in future. Anybody got any experience of Protek or Advantage warranty inspections? Were in Scotland (hence the price which is mostly the inspection audit fees) so this policy and these inspections will run along side Building control inspections and while I obviously want them to be thorough I don't want them to cause any unnecessary hold ups!
  2. Hey @SuperJohnG they are back in business with the warranties but not really advertising it. Think they've just started up again. Mines with the underwriters but because inspection fees locations he said its gonna be about 5 grand ouch.
  3. Hi All, First ever post on the forum! Just about to kick off in March with a closed panel timber frame timber clad building only 149m2 on isoquick insulated raft in the highlands Scotland and having a nightmare with finding structural warranties. I expected to pay about 3 grand but the quotes coming in high or not at all! Self build zone absolutely ridiculous 11 grand (inspection fees only apparently they only have one assessor covering the whole of Scotland). Next best quote I've got in from a broker is 5,300. I've put it out to alot of brokers and am hoping something cheapers gonna come in, but speaking to the brokers its apparently a hard market in the insurance world. I definitely want it before we start any construction. Are there any structural warranty providers that will go on the LABC inspections who operate in Scotland that anyone knows off because its the inspection fees that are the bulk of the prices, LABC the insurance firm, don't cover Scotland. Thanks in advance
  4. @SuperJohnG really interested to know how you got on with warranty as your on the insulated raft loved reading your blog!
