In order to sell a property within 10 years of it being built you will require either a Professional Consultants Certificate or a Structural Warranty. If you are building a property and have a self-build mortgage the mortgage lender will require you to have a structural warranty.
White & Eddy Ltd have a partnering agreement with a number of structural warranty providers, to carry out Technical Audits and Completed Property Surveys to facilitate a Structural Warranty at the end of your project.
Please visit our who we partner with page to learn more about these providers.
However, it is the Structural Warranty provider which decides how many inspections are required above this which may be due to a complicated overall design or complicated foundations.
Whilst less inspections are carried out to that of a Professional Consultants Certificate all elements of the dwelling are inspected at all of the inspection stages listed. So for example at the cavities inspection, usually carried out when the building is between 1st floor joists and wall plate, the block & beam layout and the 1st floor joist layout would also be inspected.
