Consumer Code

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 Consumer 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

This code of conduct sets mandatory requirements that all Home Builders must meet in their marketing and selling of Homes and their after sales customer service. If a builder fails to meet these requirements it could be subject to sanctions.

What is covered by the Code?

The Code covers every stage of the home-buying process - pre-purchase ,pre-contract, exchange of contract and occupation.

Pre-purchase

Home buyers must be given enough information to help them make an informed decision about the purchase of a new home. This must include:
•    a written reservation agreement – including the reservation fee, what is being sold, the purchase price and how long the price remains valid
•     an explanation of the insurance-backed home warranty cover
•     if the home is not yet complete (for example when buying off-plan) buyers will be provided with a brochure or plan showing the layout, appearance and plot position of the home, a list of the home's contents and standards to which the home is being built
•     a description of any management services that the buyer must pay for and an estimate of their cost

Exchange of Contract

The builder must provide a contract which is clear and fair, complies with the Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations 1999, and clearly explains the home buyer’s contract termination rights.Builders must give reliable and realistic information about when the home will be finished, the date of legal completion and the date for handover of the home. If an unreasonable delay occurs in completing the home, the home buyer has the right not to go ahead with the purchase and have their reservation fee returned without deductions. The builder must also explain how contract deposits are protected and how any other pre-payments will be dealt with.

During occupation

The builder must provide an accessible after-sales service for the home buyer, together with information explaining what this service includes, who to contact, and information on any guarantees and warranties that come with the home.If the home buyer moves into a home where building work is still in progress on surrounding properties, they must be advised of any necessary health and safety precautions they need to take.The builder must have processes in place to be able to handle and resolve any complaints that buyers may have after they have moved in. Preferably before occupation, the builder should advise the home buyer of who to contact in the event they have a complaint, as well as providing written information about the independent dispute resolution service operated under the Code.

When will it get fixed?

A note to landlords

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 in the first instance, before contacting us.

Should a property 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.

10 Year Warranty

Your Castle 10 new home warranty policy is insurance that is provided with your new Trivselhus by Esh home to add to your comfort and protection.

The policy is an agreement between you, the buyer, and Checkmate, that is entered into by the Developer (Trivselhus by Esh) on your behalf. It is based on the details provided to us by the Developer and by you if you are the first buyer.

If any of those details change, you must let us know as soon as possible, otherwise it may invalidate the insurance.
Certain words have specific meanings when they appear in this policy. These meanings are shown as ‘Definitions’ and appear throughout the policy in bold type.

You may only claim under this policy whilst you are the current buyer. You are not entitled to make or continue a claim under this policy once you have sold or otherwise disposed of your interest in the new home.

Your Cancellation Rights: You have the right to cancel this policy, however, we are unable to return to you any premium paid to us. Before you decide to cancel the insurance it is important to check with your mortgage lender that you will not breach any conditions of your loan. You may also want to consider whether cancellation could affect the ability of any subsequent buyer to obtain a mortgage.
The policy is only valid when it is accompanied by a Building Period Certificate or Insurance Certificate, or both as appropriate.

Summary of cover

Problems with new homes are rare, but should you need this insurance, it is important that you understand what is and is not covered. It cannot be stressed enough how important it is that you carefully read the policy wording, the definitions and conditions, the Certificates and any endorsements printed on them for the full details of cover. We have tried to make this as straightforward as possible by stating clearly in the policy wording what is and is not covered.

By way of summary and subject to the conditions and any endorsements printed on the Certificates, the policy protects you if your developer goes into liquidation or is made bankrupt against the loss of contract exchange deposit. It also covers the repair of certain types of damage caused by building defects in the first 2 years.

If the developer is not in liquidation or has not been made bankrupt, but nonetheless unreasonably refuses to meet its obligations within a reasonable period, we will help to resolve a dispute between you and the developer by giving advice about the extent of cover available under the Policy and the developer’s responsibility to rectify damage caused by defects. If we advise that repairs are covered by the policy but the developer unreasonably refuses to carry out the work within a reasonable period, we will pay for the work to be completed.

After the first two years and until ten years after the effective date on the Insurance Certificate, we will cover the repair of major physical damage caused by building defects in the original construction.

What happens if I sell on?

A Castle 10 new home warranty policy is automatically assigned to the new owner of a property if you sell on. The policy continues to run to completion of the term.

These are outline details only. Always check your policy for full details and your insurance certificate for any endorsements.
