As a purchaser of a new home, you are protected by the Consumer Code.
What is the Consumer Code?
The Consumer Code is in place to ensure that the buyer of a new build home is protected through each stage of their home buying journey, from pre-contract to home ownership. The Code was developed by the home-building industry to make the process fair and transparent for all purchasers.
The Consumer Code covers:
- Pre-Contract – Ensuring that home buyers are given enough pre-purchase information to make an informed purchase decision
- Exchange of Contract – Ensuring that home buyers are provided with a clear and fair contract for the purchase of their home
- Ownership – Ensuring an accessible after sale service and clear information is made available to inform of and rectify any issues which occur
- Dispute Resolution – Ensuring that a speedy and low cost dispute resolution system is in place to help the purchaser resolve any concerns they may have about their new home
