Recently Awarded Best Architect Certificates & Structural Warranty Company

We monitor and certify the construction works to tens of thousands of residential and commercial properties every year throughout the UK.

The UK’s most cost-effective Structural Warranty, ‘ABC+’ with no membership fees, renewal fees, holding bonds or hidden costs unlike some other Warranty Providers.

The only RICS registered Structural Warranty company in the UK to offer both our ABC+ 10 and 12 Year Structural Warranty and our 6 Year Professional Consultants Certificate for complete peace of mind.

Both types of certificates are mortgage lender accepted and an essential requirement as stipulated by all mortgage lenders in the UK following the completion works to UK property and buildings.

Also suitable for those purchasing their homes under the government’s Help to Buy scheme and acceptable for Housing Associations.

Our surveying history began over 30 years ago, when our then MD, Trevor Bartlett, established his first surveying practice, called Denstone Chartered Surveyors.

Since then the team at what is now Architects Certificate have provided tens of thousands of satisfied clients with their award-winning services and products.

More than thirty years later, our team is now overseen and led by Managing Director, Adele Reid who continues to provide exceptional value and customer service standards at their head offices in Cheshire. Here we handle all the enquiries, deal directly with Builders, Developers, Self-builders, Mortgage Brokers, Estate Agents and Solicitors and allocate the site monitoring supervision to one of our dedicated Regional Surveyors.

Our customers can rest assured that they will receive high-quality support that meets their needs and does not exceed their budget. We offer a flexible stage payment plan at no extra cost. This allows our customers to spread the payments throughout the stages of construction and helping them manage their finances and project effectively.

Additionally, we guarantee to beat any other genuine quotation.

ABC+ Warranty is a benchmark of exceptional property constructed and certified in the UK. We are raising the standards of construction and as a result, ALL of our Chartered Surveyors are qualified to the highest industry standards.

We are Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML) Associate Members as well as holding FCA permissions, Structural Timber Association members and a RICS Chartered Company.

    Happy with the service. I dealt with an individual over the phone, Tom Palin, who was professional, amiable and very efficient when called upon.Would highly recommend for anyone for a great level of service which is so often … More the difference!
  • Martin O'Reilly ★★★★★
    An amazing service from Mark and the team. Unfortunately I lost my business partner during Covid who handled building warranty matters.In challenging times ABC were able to track all previous correspondence from as far back … More as 2018 and resolved the issue of certification, working with the original inspector to organise a final inspection with a qualified and briefed colleague over the Easter break at short notice to support the sale of our properties.This is a terrific service and I strongly recommend having a discussion to see how the team can help. We shall be return customers.A very happy Martin.
