We provide house warranty / commercial latent defects insurance. We also offer life cycle assessments and durability design assessments for offsite construction.

BLP (Building LifePlans Ltd), part of the Thomas Miller Group, has been providing building defects insurance since 1999.

Our policies are underwritten by Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty, an AA rated global insurer, and are underpinned by an independent technical appraisal aimed at minimising defects right from the design stage.

Our housing warranty insurance product is a compelling alternative to the 'traditional' 10 year house warranty solutions. Our cover has a one off cost so the builder/developer does not need to provide an annual membership fee, additional security and financial bonds.

Our commercial latent defects insurance product is the most comprehensive in the market: M&E cover, Component Failure, Loss of Rent and financial limits to match the exposure. All aimed to protect the investment with a single policy from one of the world's largest insurance groups. Learn more about BLP's commercial latent defects insurance...

BLP is also a leading resource for ‘whole life cost’ methodology in UK residential construction, and offers durability and maintenance assessments to facilitate the adoption of modular construction and other innovative and offsite manufactured systems.

Wouldn't it be nice...

  • To have a single point of reference for remedying defects?
  • To do away with registration and membership fees?
  • Not to provide large sums in security for long periods?
  • Not to have a two-year defects liability period when someone has signed off your project and you've paid for cover?
  • For your homebuyers to know that they can make a direct claim to the insurer, in the unlikely event of a structural defect?
  • To do away with long delays in getting an agreed recovery for a defective build?

 You do have an alternative. Contact us to find out more:
