We mentioned in the previous section that you can buy Insurance Policies to protect yourself when buying a garden office, these are provided through bodies such as The Consumer Protection Association. You can take policies to protect your deposit and to cover the workmanship of the building, but do read the terms of the policy because there are limits to the amounts covered, and their could be a shortfall on an expensive build.
Many of the leading garden office suppliers are members of The Consumer Protection Association and will highlight the policies you can take out as part of the ordering process.
The Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) has some useful guides to working with tradesmen. The ‘CAB’ also explains how paying on a credit card and other types of credit agreement offers you protection should anything go wrong.
