Around 10,000 builders and developers choose to register with us each year so they can offer our Buildmark warranty and insurance cover on the new homes they build. We provide technical support to help at every stage of development, from land buying, design and build, through to customer handover. As an NHBC registered builder you have unique access to our products and services designed to help you build quality homes, as well as a range of NHBC branded materials that help you successfully sell them.

Joining the NHBC register

You can apply to register with us either as a builder or a developer. An NHBC registered builder can build and sell homes with the benefit of Buildmark warranty and insurance. An NHBC registered developer can only sell homes with our warranty and insurance cover where they have employed an NHBC registered builder to build the homes for them. Anyone registered with us will need to comply with the NHBC Rules.
