NEW BUILD RIGHTS ALLIANCE

Supporting You In Resolution

New Build Rights Alliance are an independent snagging company and resolution service who protect the rights of consumers who have purchased a new build property.

Our aim is to work with the Developers of these properties within their liability period to achieve the objective of the agreed snagging and defect works being undertaken at no charge to the consumer by using proven methods and positive communication. New Build Rights Alliance (NBRA) supports consumers who have bought a new build property to get what they paid for and to ensure your rights as a new homeowner are protected.

We actively encourage the developer to address snagging in a timely manner ensuring all works required are undertaken within the builder’s liability period.

If you or anyone you know is starting to experience any issues potentially poor workmanship including any cracks appearing, walls showing dents, kitchen unit doors delaminating, windows misting or anything else you must get in touch and let us see where you stand and how we can assist you.

Our team has years of experience in raising warranty claims and have forged excellent working relationships with the warranty providers. We know the technical standards to verify and get resolved all issues covered within the warranties.

We urge you to get in contact to arrange a FREE 30 minute telephone consultation with one of the team enabling us to review your case and offer a quote for  future engagement, ideally before you move in or as soon as possible afterwards, to provide a full assessment and ensure you get the new home you are entitled to.

Each client gets a tailored service meeting their individual needs and unlike a traditional “snagging surveyor” the NBRA can not only snag the property but liaise with the developer on your behalf to ensure the agreed snagging is undertaken by the developer within the liability period.

about us

With almost a decade of experience in defect resolution for a Social Housing provider we are extremely conversant with the multiple issues affecting new build properties and the devastating long term damage and cost implications these issues can cause if left unaddressed.

This extensive experience means we have a full understanding of the liability and property warranty insurance documents. We have worked with the two main warranty providers (NHBC and LABC) and have built up positive working relationships with the inspectors and contact centre staff. Knowing how these matters are dealt with we undertake a triage of all defects and aim to get the fastest possible resolution directly dealing with the developer’s customer care teams and or the warranty provider.

Recently there have been many documentaries showing the poor quality of some new build property developments and reporting how slow developers can be in addressing issues. It is the NBRA’s mission to ensure all agreed defects are dealt with in a timely manner by using our expertise and experience therefore protecting the consumers investment.
