EP 85

A guide to patent defects, latent defects and structural warranties (EP 85)



This week Paul is joined by Joe Gooden, Head of Broking (Structural Warranties) at Build-Zone. They are one of the UK & Ireland’s leading providers of Structural Housing Warranties & Latent Defects Insurance. 

In our conversation, Joe explains the difference between patent and latent defects, the importance of structural warranties, and the pitfalls of using a non-A-Rated insurer. I learned a lot from the conversation, so this is a must-listen for all property developers and main contractors.
