I’ll huff and I’ll puff, and I’ll blow your house down
Not with Latent Defects Insurance you won’t.
You must remember the old children’s story about the Three Little Pigs; well imagine if a big bad wolf came along and blew your house down. It would be awful. The first house that the wolf blew down was made from straw and the second from sticks, but he was unable to destroy the third house which was made from bricks.
You’re probably thinking why we’re telling you this story, but imagine if your home or property was built using weak material and you were unaware of it. What would happen? It would most likely receive a list of problems such as the roof collapsing, or parts of the walls suddenly caved in because of the poor structure, or even worse, a big bad wolf coming along to blow it down. Who would be liable for this? Your home and building insurance will only go so far, and you’d most likely be battling a long term case to sue the original contractors as they would be liable. No one wants a long winded stressful case, which is why there is another form of insurance available called Latent Defects Insurance.
