Checkmate is able to provide the appropriate type of new home warranty policy or latent defects insurance cover for virtually all types of development projects. These can be from the usual newly built homes for sale on the open market by a developer or house-builder to permitted development schemes where existing office buildings are used to create multiple new apartments.

Mixed-use developments as well as all tenures of affordable housing are easily covered, along with private rental sector homes too.

On a more commercial level all types of retail, commercial, industrial, healthcare, education and hotels can be covered, whether forming part of a residential development or as a stand-a-lone project. Like the residential cover available these developments can be 100% new build or conversion/refurbishment.
