Peace of Mind – even before you move in with Deposit Protection from Exchange of Contracts.

Whether you’re a first-time buyer, a growing family or downsizing, buying a brand new home is an exciting time. As Cotswold Homes works together with the NHBC, you can be confident that your new home is benefiting from a wealth of building knowledge and experience. Buildmark is a joint agreement between Cotswold Homes and the NHBC to provide warranty and insurance on your newly built home. Protection is provided to you from exchange of contracts with deposit protection insurance, then a 2 year warranty plus a further 8 years’ insurance totalling 10 years from Legal Completion*.

With around 10,000 builders and developers on the register, NHBC currently provides warranty and insurance for over 1.5 million homes in the UK.

Only builders registered with NHBC are able to offer Buildmark warranty and insurance.

Each home is inspected by a technical expert at key stages so, even before you’re handed the keys, NHBC has ensured your home has been built to a high standard and is ready for you to move into. Following Legal Completion is a two-year post-completion builder warranty, supported by an NHBC dispute resolution service and guarantee. If you encounter any problems with your home during this time, Cotswold Homes is your first point of contact. In the unlikely event you are dissatisfied, you can contact the NHBC for assistance.
