The Consumer Code for New Homes (CCNH) offers robust protection for individuals and families investing in newly constructed homes. It is approved by the Chartered Trading Standards Institute (CTSI), which mandates requirements for all registered developers.

The code aims to enforce best practices in the marketing, selling, and purchasing of new homes while also setting high standards for post-sales customer care services. CCNH work with warranty providers, signed up as Code users, who ensure detailed monitoring and code enforcement together. By joining the CCNH, Build-Zone will be aligned with other warranty providers in the market, helping to raise standards for developers and builders.

Peter Richardson, Build-Zone, said:

Our dedication to excellence aims to help both consumers and developers alike. By joining the Consumer Code for New Homes, we promote a collective voice within the industry, fostering collaboration and ensuring quality throughout the new home-buying process.

We are delighted to be part of the CCNH and work alongside like-minded warranty providers to provide market confidence collectively, with consumer safety at the forefront of operations.”
