OverviewSuggest Edit

BLP provides housing warranty insurance and commercial development latent defects insurance - underwritten by Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty SE (UK Branch). We have been providing construction insurance since 1984, trading as BLP since 1999. We are owned by Thomas Miller, a world class insurance services business at the forefront of the insurance industry for over 125 years. We are one of the premier consultancy resources for “whole life cost” data and methodology in UK residential construction, and offer durability assessments for clients who need to fast-track the adoption of innovative systems. We jointly developed BOPAS (Buildoffsite Property Assurance Scheme) with Buildoffsite, The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and Lloyd's Register to provide assurance to the lending community that innovatively constructed properties against which they may be lending, will be sufficiently durable as to be readily saleable for a minimum of 60 years.
