Setting the standard

Trivselhus UK is one of the first companies to receive approval for its building system under the new Checkmate warranty that has recently been approved by the Trading Standards Institute.

'Checkmate is the first new home warranty provider in the UK to operate a TSI approved code,' said Paul Cooper, managing director of Checkmate. 'Our builder/developer member businesses have welcomed Checkmate’s TSI approved code; being part of a market leading initiative with a TSI approved logo is something to be very proud of.'

Baroness Christine Crawley of Edgbaston, chair of the CCAS board, said: 'We are delighted to welcome the Checkmate Consumer Code for Builders of Homes for Sale into our family of consumer codes, a hallmark for excellent consumer protection and customer service. Not only does the Checkmate Consumer Code for Builders help builders distinguish their services from those of competitors, it gives peace of mind to consumers that if something goes wrong, they will be dealt with fairly and transparently by businesses under the terms of the code.' 'We want consumers to further recognise that a business showing an approved code logo is a business they can trust.'
