Be confident in our NHBC ratings
The National House Building Council (NHBC) states its primary purpose is raising the construction standards of new homes in the United Kingdom.
Your satisfaction in your new home is important
This is where the NHBC comes in. NHBC has measured homeowner satisfaction since 2004. Its surveys measure homeowner satisfaction at both 8 weeks and 9 months after legal completion.
It’s the UK’s largest homeowner satisfaction survey. Up to 100,000 questionnaires are sent each year. And with a response rate of between 50% and 75%, the NHBC provides crucial insights into homeowner satisfaction on an unrivalled scale.
We are incredibly proud to currently hold a 100% rating for new Thakeham home owners that would recommend our new homes to their friends or would buy from from us again. This is testiment to the whole team at Thakeham and the team of professionals that we work with on a daily basis.
Nicky Wilmshurst and Rhyan Thwaites bought a new home in Burgess Hill. Nicky said: “We had not heard of Thakeham before but as we talked to friends and family, it transpired that a friend’s brother had bought a Thakeham house.
“We spoke to him and were delighted when he sang Thakeham’s praises, confirming our thoughts that we would be buying a high-quality new home from a well-regarded local developer who delivered on their promise.”
