The fixed-price approach to
managing your warranty obligations
How we got here
Almost 20 years ago, the founding partners became involved in new home after care. It quickly became apparent that for small and medium sized companies, it was difficult 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 houses have become more sophisticated. No longer can a developer manage their obligations under the warranty without a highly trained and knowledgeable resource, backed by the latest technology.
This coupled with the advent of the New Homes Ombudsman means forward looking developers are switching to After Build to provide new homeowners with a reliable, cost-effective, professional after care service.
As house builder (developer, registered social landlord or main contractor) you are responsible for legitimate build defects in the first 12-24 months following legal completion (or handover).
This is known as the 'Builder's Rectification Period' and managing it is easier said than done. So, let After Build do it for you!
Our team of trained warranty coordinators work with your original contractors and 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 provide after care nationally to developers all across the UK.
New homes are ever more technically complex, so what better way to start than with a professional guided tour and demonstration?
We set realistic expectations and explain the after care process.
Often we meet developers who have a 'snagging' issue at a given development. It can happen for a multitude of reasons but needs bringing under control. Such a backlog can be overwhelming for the site team and a distraction to future output. We can help.
THE NEW HOMES OMBUDSMAN
How this will change the industry and what you must do
The New Home Ombudsman, to be appointed by the
New Homes Quality Board, is setting out legislation to improve the consumers powers of address. 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.
