Why is a structural warranty needed?

In order to obtain a mortgage, most banks and building societies require new buildings to have a structural warranty in place as it covers any risks that are not included in standard buildings insurance such as design, materials or workmanship. This is technically known as latent defects insurance. It also gives the client piece of mind.
