Buildmark Connect policy details 

The following is a summary of the Buildmark Connect cover we provide:

During the first 2 years

During this period, you are responsible for putting right defects or damage to the premises and its common parts, caused by a failure to build to our Technical Requirements contained within the NHBC Standards.  You must do this within a reasonable time and at your own expense.

During years 3 to 10

Owners are covered during this period through the NHBC insurance cover, underwritten by Aviva.

This insurance covers the cost of putting right damage to most parts of the premises.

These parts of the premises are covered:

  • Foundations
  • Load-bearing walls
  • Load-bearing parts of the roof
  • Wet-applied plaster
  • External render and external vertical tile hanging
  • Roof coverings
  • Load-bearing parts of the floors
  • Floor decking, screeds and staircases, where these fail to support normal loads
  • Retaining walls necessary for the structural stability of the premises, and any garage or other permanent outbuilding forming part of, and constructed at the same time as, the premises
  • Below-ground drainage for which the owner is responsible

Contaminated land

Buildmark Connect also protects owners if they are served, or are likely to be served, a Statutory Notice about contamination of the land that existed at completion.

What's not covered?

Buildmark Connect does not cover general wear and tear, condensation, normal shrinkage, cosmetic damage or damage arising from failure to maintain the property or resulting from alterations to the premises.  You should refer to the full policy document for information on all the exclusions and limitations that apply.
