Do I need to renew my registration?

NHBC registration entitles you to a range of discounted or free services, including the best available discounts on tools and materials via TradePoint. You can view the entire range of the benefits of NHBC registration here.

If you have registered homes with us and you have not legally completed the sale of these properties, then you must remain registered in order to offer NHBC Buildmark cover on those homes.

If you do not remain NHBC registered and have outstanding plots, this will mean:

  • Your building inspector will not be able to issue a CML cover note
  • If we are providing Building Control for you, then we may have to consider defaulting to the Local Authority
  • Your purchaser's deposit may not be covered by Buildmark
  • Your purchaser's solicitor will not be able to obtain cover confirmation to enable the release of funds
  • Our online Buildmark Acceptance process will immediately advise the purchaser's solicitor that you are not currently registered with NHBC- referring them back to yourselves to establish whether arrangements have been made regarding cover.

If all sales on your homes have been legally completed and you do not intend to register more homes with us in the future. please call us on 0344 633 1000 and ask for 'Customer Services' to discuss the ways in which NHBC can support your business and may be able to help you in the future.

Can I suspend my registration?

If you plan to register homes with us for Buildmark cover in the next 12 months, you will need to maintain your registration.

If you cancel your registration, then you can apply to have this reinstated within the next 12 months. You will need to complete an application form, pay any outstanding renewal fees plus an administration charge of £156 + VAT.

Between 12 months and five years after cancelling your registration, you can apply to re-register and keep the same registration number. However, this is treated as a new application to register and an application fee will apply. You will need to complete the full application process, which will include a review of your financial status, your future plot plans, and the security we hold as a condition of your registration. We will also need to carry out another technical assessment.
