Who are the NHBC?

The National House Building Council, commonly referred to as the NHBC, is the UK's leading standard-setting body and provider of warranty and insurance for new homes. Their role is to work with the housebuilding industry to raise the standards of new homes and to provide consumer protection for homebuyers.


Added reassurance when you buy new

All Barratt London homes come with a NHBC ten-year Buildmark structural warranty. We have complied with the NHBC standards, which set out the technical requirements for design, materials and workmanship in new home construction.

This is just one of the added benefits of buying a new home with Barratt London.

Choose new and you can move in with confidence

The ten-year NHBC structural warranty is two-fold. Here’s how it works:

Part one: Ten-year structural warranty.

Your new home comes with a ten-year structural warranty, meaning that the cost of fixing any damage caused by faults in specified parts of the home, usually the structural and weatherproofing elements, is covered.

Part two: Two-year fixtures and fittings warranty.

During the first two years, you have complete peace of mind in your new home. If something goes wrong within your home, and is covered by the two-year fixtures and fittings warranty, we will make sure it is put right.
