The 5* rating is the highest possible accolade awarded by the HBF and means over 90% of customer would recommend Orbit Homes to a friend.

Helen Moore, Group Director of Orbit Homes, commented: “At Orbit Homes, we pride ourselves on offering affordable, well-designed and energy efficient homes, coupled with excellent customer service.

“Last year, we became one of the first housing associations to register with the New Homes Quality Board (NHQB), furthering our commitment to ensuring our customers receive an excellent service and high-quality home, and we adhere to the principles of the Code for all of our customers, whatever their tenure.

“We are also particularly proud of our sector-leading house designs which are matched against the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accident’s (RoSPA) Safer by Design framework and our all-inclusive design specification, so we are delighted receive 5* Housebuilder status from the HBF in recognition of our commitment to delivering high quality homes and service to our customers.”

Stewart Baseley, Executive Chairman of the Home Builders Federation (HBF) said:

“Over recent years there has been a huge industry focus on service and quality, and this is the fourth year in a row where over 90% of new home buyers would recommend their builder to a friend. We fully support the CMA’s recommendation for a single mandatory industry consumer code and the provision of access to the new homes ombudsman for all customers that will lead to further increases in quality and service standards across the board. For a company to achieve 5-star levels of satisfaction is a significant achievement and shows the commitment from everyone within the organisation to the customer.”
