Miller's UK Construction team provide bespoke housebuilder insurances that are properly optimised for your risk profile and business needs, and which reflect the true nature of the risks or the contractual differences to traditional building projects.

The UK housebuilding sector has recently received some encouraging news with the publication of the government's white paper on planning reform and the SDLT holiday. However, several key risks continue to perplex this critical sector, not to mention Covid-19 and uncertainty around Brexit.

These include a generational skills shortage, reputational quality control issues, pressure to deliver increased volumes and the requirement to drive productivity and sustainability improvements through the use of MMC.

The benefits of a tailored insurance and risk management programme have never been greater.
