There are currently around 16,000 builders signed up to the Code through registration with the Home Warranty Bodies. Many of these have received training on how to comply.

A checklist is freely available to help Home Builders and Estate Agents comply with the Requirements of the Code: Consumer Code Check List for Builders and Estate Agents

On-line training courses

A free on-line learning course is available for Home Builders registered with one of the Home Warranty Bodies that support the Code, or for companies who work for registered Home Builders such as Estate Agents, solicitors, etc. Staff from affiliated companies will need details of the registered Home Builder (including their registration number if appropriate) that they are working for when registering for the course.

The course is designed for staff who need to have an understanding of the Code.

The course takes no longer than an hour to complete and is a process of individual learning and self- accreditation – leading to a partner-endorsed CPD certificate of achievement.

A unique feature of the training is the marriage of training about the Code Requirements with training about Consumer Protection Regulations, which apply to property transactions and which have a clear synergy with the Code.
