It's worth knowing so read below for our overview on why it matters to you.
The Consumer Code for Home Builders was developed by the home-building industry to make the home buying process fairer and more transparent for purchasers.
The code requires that all home buyers are treated fairly, know what levels of service to expect, are fully informed about their purchase and their consumer rights before and after they move in, and are provided with a speedy, low-cost dispute resolution scheme to deal with complaints about breaches of the code.
The home builder must have suitable systems and procedures to ensure it can reliably and accurately meet the commitments on service, procedures and information in the code.
The code covers every stage of the home-buying purchase – pre-contract, exchange of contract and during occupation.
