As an owner builder or domestic builder you are guaranteeing the work you undertake. However, unforeseen situations can sometimes occur which is why Builders Warranty insurance is a legal requirement for domestic construction/building companies and has been specifically designed to cover your clients for the loss of their deposit or in the event you fail to start or finish a construction job or project. It also provides cover for defective work found on the completed building or project, because you would have to make the repairs at no cost to your client. No building work can be done without it and your obligation is to provide a copy of it to your client when they sign a contract with you.
Construction insurance has been specifically tailored for your protection as a building contractor or tradesperson and covers any damage and liability caused during your organisation’s construction projects. This includes accidental damage, theft or loss of onsite materials (building materials, tools, plant and equipment). Construction insurance also covers your legal liability if claims are made against you as a result of your work on site or they arise after the work is completed.
The construction and building industry is a world existing with a myriad of unexpected and damaging liabilities, each with the potential to bring down even the most experienced companies in the industry. Construction businesses must often manage changes to scope or orders, poorly written contracts and specifications and complex project management issues. This is why it is crucial for any new or experienced builder/tradesperson to have Builders Warranty and construction insurance for their Melbourne construction works or building developments.
If you as a tradesperson or builder are operating without this crucial construction or Builders Warranty insurance in Victoria, you could find yourself liable to unwanted civil/commercial litigation disputes, which could ultimately result in the seizing your personal or business assets for liquidation, potentially leaving you bankrupt and destroying everything you have built.
