Why Choose LABC Warranty?

For smaller works you may want to consider the Federation of Master Builders Insurance scheme. LABC works with FMB to help you make informed choices about choosing a quality builder.

Warranties available through FMB Insurance (FMBIS) include the Domestic & Commercial Structural Defects Insurance Policy which offers protection to homeowners in the event that their builder ceases to trade and defects arise within the works. Options include a 2, 6 or 10 year warranty.

Key features of this policy:

  • available to be taken out by all builders, but preferential rates and terms are given to FMB registered builders (limitations apply to non-member builder)
  • offers protection against defects due to faulty workmanship or materials
  • offers protection against structural defects and water ingress
  • free dispute resolution service
  • protection offered even where the builder has gone out of business
  • the policy belongs to the property rather than the homeowner so is fully transferable to future owners
  • underwritten by an A+ rated insurer, operating a centralised claims fund, meaning greater protection for the homeowner.
