Consumer Code For Home Builders

Too little, too late is my view on the progress made by the NHBC and MD Insurance Services Ltd.

With the exisitng NHBC Buildmark Warranty problems (such as arbitration) it's worrying that an independent body was not involved with the protection of consumer rights for new homes. One has more rights buying a new toaster than buying a new home in the UK.

For those still trying to get Persimmon Group plc (includes Persimmon Homes, and Charles Church) to honour exisitng builders obligations for faults reported within the first two years, then this article may not give hope for a timely resolution.
