Sharon Kestell started this petition to Parliament

Many people are having issues with the quality of new build houses , various builders once they get your money very often then refuse to snag to satisfaction - if it was law that for two years if they are not carried out without procrastination 5% of the cost is returned to the buyer if the snags, repairs etc are not done to a resaleable standard.

Once these builders have your money they are reluctant to engage in completing snags, repairs in a timely manner and more often than not wait for the two years to expire then point buyers to the NHBC during the two years all the while refusing to fix even minor issues - severe issues - quoting ‘within tolerance’

During COVID 19 many people have been deprived of seeing houses precompletion and then rushed into exchanging by various threats such as the buyer will lose the house even though they’ve not stepped foot in it till moving in day.
