Mortgage lender approval

We are approved by the DCLG as a designated warranty provider (regardless of who you use for Building Control) and by the Housing Corporation; and through the Housing Corporation's Scheme Development Standards, BLP is designated as an appropriate organisation for providing independent technical approval of non-traditional housing schemes.
Housing warranty insurance and latent defects insurance policies are long term products. You need to be sure that the Insurers are going to be around when you need them most.
