More on how it works

  1. Plot registration

    When the plot is registered with us, we send the builder / developer a policy number and an activation code. They can also access the online Buildmark acceptance system via their own account to obtain this information if required.

  2. Policy numbers and activation codes

    The builder / developer forwards the policy number and activation code to the plot purchaser's conveyancer.

  3. Access plot details

    The conveyancer goes online and logs in to their secure Buildmark acceptance account and uses the policy number and activation code to access plot details to check that cover is in place before exchange of contracts.

  4. Exchange of Contracts

    The conveyancer uses the system to notify us when exchange of contracts takes place and updates the purchaser's details which will activate the deposit insurance protection available under the Buildmark policy.

  5. Legal Completion

    The convayencer uses the system again to notify us when legal completion takes place and accepts the Buildmark policy on behalf of the buyer.

  6. Insurance certificate available for download

    NHBC will validate the completion information. Once approved, the insurance certificate and associated documents will be available to download.
