Your 2 year liability runs from the date the NHBC cover commenced.
Likewise, if you only sell now, 2 years after NHBC cover started, the Buyer will only have 8 years left under the NHBC.
I hope this answers your question, and if so, I would be grateful if you could leave positive feedback.
So would the cover commence, from first occupation, i.e. When the tenancy started as the first occupyer or does cover commence the date of completion to the purchaser, we are not sure whether the property has to been owner occupied or tenanted ?? what would be deemed first occupation
Sorry if I wasn't clear. Your 2 year liability starts on the date the NHBC cover started, and this would have been from the first date of occupation- NOT when the Plots are eventually sold.
