If you have recently purchased a newly built home, we want to know about your experience and the quality of your property via our on-line survey. The New Homes Review (NHR) provides a unique, independent insight into the quality of new homes being built for sale and the level of customer satisfaction, based on feedback directly from new home owners.
As a thank you for completing the survey, you will be able to download our exclusive guide to ‘Settling In’ which contains helpful hints and tips about getting settled in. You will also be given the option to enter our monthly prize draw to win £25 of M&S vouchers.
This information is collated, analysed and fed back to developers, builders and the new homes construction industry as a whole through the NHR annual report.
Our survey has been developed following consultation with home builders and consumers who had recently bought a new home or were looking to do so in the near future.
The survey asks home buyers about their satisfaction with their home and the buying process, and there is also space for additional comments.
Feedback is anonymous unless home buyers want their comments to go directly to their house builder.
The NHR believe that good service in any industry should be rewarded and excellence in home building should be no different. To provide a reliable guide for potential home buyers and encourage the raising of building standards, the New Homes Review has developed a rating system based on new home owner customer satisfaction.
On an annual basis the NHR aggregates all new home owner feedback received over the previous 12 month period and awards a rating based on the following questions asked within the survey:
We know that excellent developers and builders can come in all shapes and sizes, so at the NHR we have developed a rating system which is fair for all. The NHR rating is split into three tiers dependent on developer / builder size:
Then, dependent on the average customer satisfaction score, the following ratings are awarded:
This means that quality can be recognised by a developer or builder of any size. A rating will only be provided if the minimum number of survey returns is achieved for each Developer / Builder in order to be statistically viable.
