Builder registration


Registration costs

When you apply there is an initial one-off application fee. Once registered with us there is an annual renewal fee.

Application fee

When you apply for registration there is an initial one-off, non-refundable fee of:

  • Application fee - £935 + VAT
  • Group application fee - £650 + VAT

Note: Companies under the same ownership and controlled by the same directors may be ‘grouped’ and be treated as a single entity for warranty Premium Rating purposes. If you are grouping with a registered builder with either an A1, A2, B1 or B2 Premium Rating, then the application fee is reduced. An applicant pays the ‘Group application fee’ in those circumstances.

Annual renewal fee - pay by Direct Debit and save 10% each year

Once registered with us, your annual renewal fee will be payable in April each year. You can save 10% on this fee if you pay by Direct Debt. The fee is based on the number of homes you registered for warranty during the previous calendar year.

Note: Your Direct Debit must reach us at least a month before your renewal payment is due

Buildmark warranty fees

Our standard warranty fees for new builders and developers will apply for each new home you wish to register with us.

This fee is determined by the estimated sale value of each new home for newbuild or conversion properties. For any properties being constructed for social housing on behalf of a Housing Association it would be determined by the overall contract price and net development cost.

Save on future warranty fees

Due to our Premium Rating scheme the warranty fees you pay over time should reduce.

We will offer an increasing discount based on the time you have been registered with us and your claims history. The better your claims history and the longer you’ve been with us, the more you’ll save.
