HOME WITH NHBRC
Our mandate is to protect the interests of housing consumers and to ensure that builders comply with the prescribed building industry standards as contained in the Home Building Manual.
Our goal is to assist and protect housing consumers from any unscrupulous home builders who deliver substandard houses, shoddy workmanship and poor-quality material.
ENROL YOUR HOME
The enrolment of a new home is the first step in the protection of a housing consumers’ right, as provided by the Housing Consumers Protection Measures Act, 1998.
Home enrolment insures you against poor building practices and permits the NHBRC to conduct quality home inspections at various stages of construction.

- Minor defects within 3-months from date of occupation.
- Roof leaks within 1-year from date of occupation.
- Major structural defects within 5-years from date of occupation.
