Hard-hitting recommendations to tackle poor quality of new homes - HomeOwners Alliance
- Date: 22/05/2016
The All Party Parliament Group (APPG) inquiry into the quality of new-build homes has made a number of hard-hitting recommendations from creating a New Homes Ombudsman, to requiring developers to produce a Home Information Pack and giving buyers a right to inspect and survey their property before financial completion.
The recommendations are supported by the findings of the 2016 Homeowner Survey conducted online by YouGov for HomeOwners Alliance and BLP Insurance, which explores what quality means to potential new build home buyers along with the key quality checks buyers would aim to undertake. HomeOwners Alliance share the concern that whilst we need more new homes built, the pressure to build is coming at the expense of quality.
