ALL SERVICES ARE QUALITY CODE COMPLIANT
We deliver EVERYTHING expected of you by the New Homes Quality Code
Almost 20 years ago, the founding partners became involved in new home after care. It quickly became apparent that for small and medium sized house builders, it was difficult for them to provide a cost-effective yet professional service. So we created a unique fixed-price solution to address this problem.
Over the years, purchaser expectations have increased and properties have become more sophisticated. No longer can a developer manage their obligations under the home warranty without a highly trained and knowledgeable resource, backed by the latest technology. This coupled with the recent introduction of the New Homes Quality Code and the New Homes Ombudsman means forward looking developers are switching to After Build to provide new homeowners with a reliable, cost-effective, professional new homes after care service.
Our suite of services has been carefully designed to provide the developer with everything they need, on a fixed-price basis. Our involvement begins at site with a Quality Assurance Inspection. This is followed just prior to legal completion with a Home Demonstration. Then After Care runs for 2 years following legal completion, and this includes Emergency Out of Hours.
As house builder you are responsible for legitimate build defects in the first 2 years
following legal completion (or handover). This is known as the 'Builder's Rectification Period' and managing it is easier said than done. So, why not let After Build do it for you!
Our team of trained new home warranty coordinators work with your original contractors, under their obligations in your build agreement.
We diagnose each issue reported by the homeowner and manage the contractor to attend wherever there is an issue of failed workmanship or materials.
And we do this for a single fixed-price per plot (regardless of call volumes or issues). After Build is a national business providing after care to developers across the UK.
New homes are ever more technically complex, so what better way to start than with a professional guided tour and home demonstration?
We set realistic expectations and explain the after care process.
HOW THIS WILL CHANGE THE INDUSTRY
... and what you must do
The New Home Quality Board (NHQB) has published the New Homes Quality Code (NHQC) explaining how a developer must provide a specific level of service and after care to their customers. Furthermore, legislation to improve the consumers powers of address are encapsulated in the appointment of the New Homes Ombudsman (NHO).
This will have a significant impact on the way a house builder manages their business and
After Build is ready to help you achieve these new objectives.
