Your home’s well protected 

A new home is the biggest investment most of us will make in our lifetime.  You’ll be pleased to learn that your investment is well protected by no less than two wide-ranging warranties. 

Your new Ward home comes complete with the Buildmark warranty from the NHBC (National Home Building Council).

NHBC Buildmark – what’s covered? 

The structure, foundations and roofing of your home are covered for the 10 years by the NHBC Buildmark Warranty. 

It’s a 10 year insurance policy and the full details are sent out in your Buildmark Cover document which you will receive from your solicitor.  The NHBC also provides a useful booklet called ‘Guide to your new home’ which contains important advice about running and maintaining your new home.  If you would like more information, you can obtain a copy of the Buildmark cover document by calling the NHBC on 0870 241 4302 or at our sales office.  You can find your local sales office within the contact us tab.
