Homefirst Accredited Builders can now offer their clients New Zealand’s best independent 10 year guarantee and at the same time protect themselves from future liability for defects.
Builders have liability for 10 years under the Building Act and a duty of care to ensure that everything you build is fit for purpose. Providing your clients with an independently-insured 10 year guarantee from Builtin gives your clients peace of mind as well as insuring you from future liability for defects.
As a trade professional working in an industry with unique challenges, does your insurance match the risks you face?
You face liability for accidental damage to property, the cost of fixing faulty or defective workmanship and the risk of loss or damage to property from theft, fire and natural hazards.
In addition to this, builders have liability for 10 years under the Building Act and have a duty of care under the law to ensure that everything you build is fit for purpose. Mistakes, errors and omissions that result in a loss for your client (or anyone else for that matter) can be messy, and if lawyers get involved will be costly!
It makes sense to ensure you have the right cover in place, cover that is tailored to your unique needs, risks and potential claims as a construction trade professional. Builtin’s liability policies are tailored to the building industry, giving you cover you can’t find anywhere else.
