HDC Housing Defect Liability

The Trinidad and Tobago Housing Development Corporation provides "Defects Liability Cover" for the owners of new HDC homes. New units are covered for any structural, electrical or plumbing-related construction defects for the first six months of ownership. Any defects reported within this period will be repaired by the HDC. This service helps ensure that all new home owners are satisfied with the quality of their new unit and that any contractor-related defects are rectified shortly after purchase.
