Option 1: A Six Year Structural Certificate – called a Professional Consultants Certificate


Are you about to commence a new housing project or self-build? Do you want to convert an old barn or maybe transform an older property into several flats? Or perhaps you have completed properties without valid certification. For any of these scenarios the Professional Consultants Certificate could be the answer.

This type of certificate is very cost effective and is pre-approved by the council of mortgage lenders for your sale, mortgage or re-financing requirements. This certificate used to be known as an ‘Architects Certificate‘ and is not an insurance policy or warranty; however, it is possible to start with this low cost option certificate and upgrade at a later date to a full ten year warranty.

Option 2: A Ten Year Structural Warranty – called our ABC+

Would you like the peace of mind of having a ten year warranty to cover significant structural defects? Or perhaps your purchaser is demanding a full Structural Warranty. Do you want to upgrade from the Structural Certificate? Then you need our ABC+ warranty service.

We can offer our unique warranty ABC+system, which is our premium service to the client and bank. In addition to the OPTION 1. Structural Certificate, you will also receive a full 10 year Structural Warranty. Remember that with our unique system it is possible to start with Option 1, the Structural Certificate and then upgrade to Option 2, a Structural Warranty, if later preferred. This type of warranty is an insurance policy which covers against structural defect and provides the funding for remedial work to be carried out
