The Way Forward
The traditional method of dealing with structural and weatherproofing risks is contractual, through collateral warranties. Latent defects insurance impacts significantly on the scope of such warranties. Once the property has been completed, the liability for building, developing or designing the property does not cease. Latent defects insurance is designed to transfer the ongoing defect risk to an insurer rather than being retained by the parties involved.
