LABC new home warranty

The LABC New Home Warranty scheme has been created in partnership between LABC, the representative body for Local Authority Building Control, and MD Insurance Services Limited (MDIS) the company that administers the scheme which is regulated by the Financial Services Authority (FSA).

The LABC New Home Warranty is a quality service offering specific competitive products for speculative residential housing, social housing and self build.

This caters for speculative developers and builders covering conversions, new build and mixed-use developments. The product recognises and rewards quality projects with competitive premiums and market-leading terms. Service and support is fast and seamless because of MDIS’s experienced, dedicated customer service team.

LABC social housing warranty

A competitive tailored solution covering shared-ownership, rented or key worker accommodation projects. Quality is rewarded with the same advantages given to speculative developers. Cover can be provided for either a 10 or 12 year period.

LABC self build warranty

Designed specifically for individuals building their own homes - both new build and conversions – to provide peace of mind. Quality is rewarded through competitive premiums and excellent service based on MDIS’s extensive experience of self build projects.

New consumer code announced for new homes

A new Consumer Code for Home Builders will become active for purchasers of new homes on or after 1 April 2010. It clarifies the responsibilities and actions required by developers and warranty providers to improve service and complaint resolution to customers of new homes.

The Consumer Code has been formed by agreement between NHBC and MD Insurance Services Ltd (trading as Premier Guarantee and LABC New Home Warranty). These organisations have agreed that builders and developers registered with them will adopt the Consumer Code.
