The Consumer Code for Home Builders

The Consumer Code for Home Builders came into effect in 2010 and applies to all home builders registered with the UK’s main new home warranty bodies; NHBC, Premier Guarantee and LABC Warranty. The scheme ensures buyers are better informed than ever before about all the important aspects of their property including service levels and build timescales.

The code protects the rights of new home buyers. It demands that all buyers are treated fairly, understand their rights, know what levels of service to expect and are fully informed about their purchase before and after signing a contract. It also ensures buyers know how to access speedy, low-cost dispute resolution arrangements to deal with any complaints about breaches of the code. The code covers every stage of the process, from pre-contract to exchange and occupation.

The code reinforces best practice among home builders to encourage a consistently high level of information and customer service. Autograph Homes is proud to adhere strictly to all terms of the code in every customer relationships.

Help to Buy

Help to Buy equity loan assistance could make your new Autograph home even more affordable. Help to Buy is a Government initiative for homebuyers who need help with their deposit. The Government lends up to 20% of the cost of your new home, so you can get a 75% mortgage with as little as a 5% deposit up front, plus you don’t pay any fees for the first five years of the loan.
