The CCHB has been in place since 2010 and LABC Warranty was a founder member. It applies to over 95% of new-build homes in the UK. Consumer complaints about breaches of the Code are managed through a government-sponsored contact centre.
The CCHB is independently accredited by the government-approved Consumer Codes Approval Scheme, administered by the Chartered Trading Standards Institute. More information can be found on the CCHB website.
The CCHB provides a programme of training, assessment, and support to encourage continuous improvements in customer service. It also provides a fully-independent and government-approved Alternative Dispute Resolution Service.
LABC Warranty customers can also take advantage of free marketing materials that promote the benefits of the code to residents and building users.
A fee for the CCHB is included on each new home registered with LABC Warranty. If you choose to move from the CCHB to the NHQC this fee will be removed.
The NHQC is a new voluntary Code operated by The New Homes Quality Board. It is independent of LABC Warranty and other warranty providers.
Developers can register with the Board, prepare to adopt the code and then “activate” their registration on an agreed date, from when they are required to adhere to the code’s rules. More information can be found on the New Homes Quality Board website.
When applying for warranty, please contact your Account Manager and inform them of your intentions so that we can support you.
We will continue to charge CCHB fees until your switch to the NHQC has been completed and verified. We will advise you in more detail at the time.
