That’s why we do everything within our power to give you absolute peace of mind when you make one of the most important decisions of your life.

Each and every development we build is planned and implemented with care and attention to detail. We work incredibly hard to build homes and communities where people can flourish. In doing so, we always engage local residents and the people in our locality to accommodate them and remain sensitive to those our homes are built to serve.
We believe in safe and efficient construction practices, taking care to protect both our staff and future homeowners by meeting a number of important regulations and requirements.
The Consumer Code came into force on the 1st April 2010. It sets mandatory requirements that all Home Builders must meet in their marketing and selling of Homes and their after sales customer service.
The purpose of the Code is to ensure that Home Buyers:
- Are treated fairly
- Know what service levels to expect
- Are given reliable information upon which to make their decisions
- Know how to access speedy, low cost dispute resolution arrangements if they are dissatisfied
The Home Warranty Bodies have agreed to require all their registered builders to adopt and comply with the Code as a condition of their registration. Where a Home Builder is found to be in serious breach of the Code, Home Warranty Bodies can apply a range of sanctions, including removal from the Home Warranty Body’s register and exclusion from all registers run by other Home Warranty Bodies that participate in the Code scheme.

A note to our investors:
Please advise your tenants of our contact number and emergency number, a copy of this charter should also be given to your tenant.
Please advise your tenant if they should also report any issues they may have to you as their landlord prior to them contacting us.
Should the property you have purchased remain empty for any amount of time, it is recommended that the hot water system is drained down and the water turned off, as this will prevent any significant damage should there be a leak whilst the property is unoccupied.
