NHBC is the UK’s leading independent standard-setting body and warranty and insurance provider for new homes. For nearly 80 years NHBC has been providing Buildmark, a warranty and insurance product for new homes. They currently cover 1.6 million homes in the UK with a market share of almost 80% (March 2015).
NHBC registered builders agree to build to standards defined, set and regulated by NHBC. Each home is checked by one of NHBC’s technical experts at important stages during the build, from the foundations to final completion. So even before the new owner is handed the keys, NHBC will have done its best to make sure the home has been built to a high standard and is ready to move into.
NHBC’s role is to work with the house-building industry to raise the standards of new homes and to provide consumer protection for homebuyers. With no shareholders, it is able to invest surpluses in research and other standards-raising activities to improve the quality of UK house-building. It also works with government and stakeholders to help shape housing policy.
As a long established and trusted brand, NHBC’s experience in house-building is unrivalled. And, as a regulated insurance company, homeowners have the reassurance of knowing that they can rely on the protection offered by Buildmark from exchange of contracts to ten years after completion.
