The LABC New Home Warranty is a quality service offering specific competitive products for speculative residential housing, social housing and self build.
The LABC New Home Warranty scheme has been created in partnership between LABC, the representative body for Local Authority Building Control, and MD Insurance Services Limited (MDIS) the company that administers the scheme which is regulated by the Financial Services Authority (FSA).
Why is a structural warranty needed?
In order to obtain a mortgage, most banks and building societies require new buildings to have a structural warranty in place as it covers any risks that are not included in standard buildings insurance such as design, materials or workmanship. This is technically known as latent defects insurance. It also gives the client piece of mind.

l Structural warranty
- Speculatively Built Residential Housing
- Social Housing
- Self Build Housing
l SAP assessments (Energy performance assessment)
l Acoustic testing (Building Regulations Part E)
