A warranty for your new home

Buying a home is one of the biggest purchase decisions you’ll ever make. Move with Barratt Homes and your new home is protected by a NHBC Buildmark Warranty which gives you a 10 year structural warranty and a 2 year fixtures and fittings warranty as standard^.

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 house-building industry to raise the standards of new homes and to provide consumer protection for homebuyers – added reassurance when you buy new.

All our homes come with a NHBC 10 year Buildmark Warranty – this means 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.

Choose new and you can move with confidence

The 10 year warranty cover comes in two parts, here’s how it works:

Part 1: 10 year structural warranty.

Your new home comes with a 10 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 2: 2 year fixtures and fittings warranty.

During the first two years, you have the added reassurance that if something goes wrong within your home, and is covered by the 2 year fixtures and fittings warranty, we will make sure it is put right.
