The Consumer Code for Home Builders


What is the Consumer Code?

New home construction in the UK is governed by some of the highest levels of building regulations and consumer protection, and Beal are proud to support this on behalf of their home buyers.

The Consumer code for Home Builders came into effect in April 2010 and applies to all Homebuilders registered with the UK’s main new Home Warranty Bodies; NHBC, Premier Guarantee and LABC Warranty.


Why is the Consumer Code important to the homebuyer?

The Consumer Code acts as a rule book that all Home Builders have to follow and adhere to with regard to their marketing, selling and aftersales care.
The scheme ensures that new home buyers are better informed on vital aspects of their property.

The Code is there to ensure that homebuyers:

  • Are treated fairly
  • Know what services levels to expect
  • Are given reliable information about their purchase and consumer rights before and after they move in.
