Building a new home is a key milestone in anyone’s life. The Act requires all home builders to enrol every new home with the NHBRC at least 15 days prior to construction.
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.
