Hub > BLP Insurance's Profile
BLP (Building LifePlans Ltd) provides housing warranty insurance and commercial development latent defects insurance underwritten by Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty SE. We have been providing construction insurance since 1989, 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 also a premier consultancy resource 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.
BLP acts as an underwriting agent of the UK Branch of Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty SE and is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (authorisation number 311894).
Standard & Poor’s (S&P), the worldwide insurance rating agency, has confirmed the Financial Strength Ratings (FSRs) of Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty SE as AA. In a construction market suffering the effects of a serious lack of funding, this is excellent news for developers looking to bring both residential and commercial schemes to market.
We believe it’s worth looking at things in a different way, and to offer a new approach that anticipates the future. We concern ourselves with things like high levels of responsive and personal service, professionalism and consistency in our actions, and a clear and straightforward proposition.
Our products are unique and speak for themselves, and we want their value for money to be transparent across the whole process. People speak of us as a “breath of fresh air” and, over time, we’re finding that more and more people are choosing the BLP way of doing things not just because it’s what they need, but because it’s also what they want.
