NHBC teams up with MDA for HIPs

MDA Advantage, a home information pack provider and NHBC, a warranty and insurance provider for new homes, are to work together, developing Home Information Packs.

New and newly converted properties will require a HIP on June 1 2007, including a number of documents not required for existing properties.

Martin Willard, managing director at MDA Advantage, says: Working with NHBC ensures that we are jointly able to supply their builder and developer partners with appropriate and compliant home information packs.

Imtiaz Farookhi, chief executive, at NHBC, says: Homeowners can be confident that NHBC will continue to provide the same high levels of expertise which already back its world-leading Buildmark warranty in the new field of HIPs.

More than 20,000 builders and developers are registered with NHBC which covers more than 80% of new homes under its Buildmark warranty and insurance.
