Selfbuild insurance

Legal protection may benefit self-builders who employ people to work on their new home but don’t have legal expertise. While constructing your new self-build home, you will employ various companies or individuals, including architects, suppliers, trades and builders, to work on your property. SelfBuild’s Legal Expenses Insurance covers the cost of settling unexpected disputes.

SelfBuild Legal Expenses Insurance is designed to cover the professional fees charged by a claims handler, solicitor or accountant following a claim on your insurance. SelfBuild Legal Expenses Insurance covers claims arising from a contract dispute during the construction of your self-build home against a vendor, solicitor, architect, engineer, main contractor, surveyor, local authority, services utility or supplier of materials. It takes away the worry of escalating legal fees. The policy also covers the eviction of anyone in your Self-Build Home without your permission. Customers also get access to a Legal Advice Helpline that provides free legal advice & assistance.

Cover lasts one year and covers SelfBuild projects in the United Kingdom (England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales), the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man.
