Aftercare not after thought

All too often Aftercare is overlooked – until there’s a problem, by which time it can be too late.  Reputational damage, management distraction and spiralling costs – these are typical of the issues that present themselves when a developer fails to recognise his obligations during years 1-2 of the structural warranty.

After Build has a proven track record for providing cost-effective Aftercare in the residential new-build sector. For more than 15 years we have been delivering services across the UK to enterprises from boutique builders to regional and national developers, Housing Associations, mixed-use and niche operators.

We are specialists in providing high quality services through a unique FIXED-PRICE arrangement, protecting you from spiralling uncontrollable costs and ensuring transparent financial efficiency from start to finish.

WHY OUTSOURCE?

Any house building enterprise is focussed on acquiring land, building a scheme and selling it at a profit and not surprisingly that’s where the skill set is focussed. However, the industry imposes a rigorous obligation on all developers to provide a competent service during years 1-2 of the structural warranty (the Builder’s Rectification Period). This means having the ability to receive calls from homeowners wishing to report a problem and possessing the necessary systems, processes and people trained to deliver a suitable remedy.

This is a sizeable and costly commitment and one that, increasingly, developers are seeking alternative ways to achieve.
