Builders Warranty

We conduct builders warranty work in all Australian jurisdictions from each of our five offices – providing both local jurisdictional expertise and the efficiencies of a streamlined specialist insurance firm.

Our team has extensive expertise in builders warranty claims, from the straightforward to highly complex multi-million dollar claims.

Benefit from our approach to builders warranty claims

We manage builders warranty claims quickly and efficiently; early accurate triage is critical. We will immediately assess notification and the identity and status of the builder, and swiftly evaluate our client’s rights and obligations under the policy – in particular, in relation to whether “make good” or payment is required.

An estimate of the likely costs of investigation set against the claimed amount, particularly where our client has the right to payment, often lends itself to an early, cost-effective resolution.

We will always seek to identify and price all appropriate options and make recommendations on indemnity, liability, reserving and claims strategy at the earliest opportunity.
