BOPAS Breakfast Briefing
- Location: Lloyd's Register EMEA, Coventry
- Date: 20/05/2014
- Time: 08:30 - 10:00am
The Buildoffsite Property Assurance Scheme (BOPAS) has been developed by Lloyd’s Register, BLP Insurance and Buildoffsite, The Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors and in conjunction with the Council of Mortgage Lenders and the Building Societies Association, to provide third party endorsement to innovative forms of construction to provide assurance to developers that such accredited innovative, or non-traditional construction systems, will readily attract mortgage finance.
BOPAS certification is available to manufacturers and will provide confirmation that new homes built using innovative forms of construction will be sufficiently durable to support loans over a period of not less than 60 years. The BOPAS certification is increasingly demanded by Lenders as a recognised means to manage financial and construction risk and is likely to be of particular interest to private purchasers requiring a mortgage, institutional investors in new public and private sector housing developments, and client groups including RSLs and LAs.
This Breakfast Briefing will provide an overview of BOPAS Certification and its role in supporting innovative forms of house-building.
