Buildmark for homes
The National House Building Council (NHBC) is a standard-setting body and provider of warranties and insurance for new homes. It works with the house-building industry to raise standards and provides consumer protection for homebuyers.
NHBC warranty and insurance policies protect approximately 80% of all new homes built in the UK. Buildmark is a 10 year warranty and insurance policy offered by the NHBC for newly-built or newly-converted private homes.
If NHBC Building Control Services inspected the works for compliance with building regulations, the policy will provide cover against certain breaches of some building regulations if they pose a danger to the physical health and safety of the occupants.
