Builders Warranty Insurance

Are you a licensed builder carrying out domestic building work? Regardless of your experience, there may still be instances where your building works don’t go to plan or you find yourself unable to honour your building commitments and deliver the finished product. This can have significant implications for both you and your clients.

Builders Warranty Insurance (also known as Home Warranty Insurance) provides a safety net for homeowners to compensate for losses due to faulty workmanship and incomplete building work if their builder dies, disappears or becomes insolvent and can’t pay off their debts.

Do I need Builders Warranty Insurance?

A Builders Warranty insurance scheme is a legal requirement under State/Territory law, in all states except Tasmania, for builders carrying out domestic building contracts. If you are a licensed builder, you may need Builders Warranty Insurance to protect your clients.
