What is the Buildoffsite Property Assurance Scheme
BOPAS has been jointly developed by Buildoffsite, The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), Lloyd's Register and Building LifePlans Ltd (BLP), in consultation with the Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML) and the Building Societies Association (BSA), 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. The Assurance Scheme comprises:
- A durability and maintenance assessment.
- A process accreditation.
- A web enabled database comprising details of assessed building methodologies, registered sites and registered/warranted properties.
