Benefits of NHBC registration

Support at every stage of the house-building process



Registered builder benefits

Being an NHBC registered builder or developer includes much more than just being able to offer our Buildmark warranty and insurance cover on the new homes you build. As an NHBC registered builder or developer you’ll also have access to a host of other benefits which include:

Technical support

Our in-house engineers, surveyors and building inspectors can provide you with advice and support at all stages of the development process from land buying, design and build through to customer handover. Technical support is only a phone call away.

And out on site, our building inspectors typically carry out over 900,000 inspections at key build stages each year, supporting you in the delivery of high quality, new homes.

Get in touch if you have a technical query.
