The number and cost of claims for defects is going up whilst the number of new homes being built is going down.
Hardly a sign of the quality of new homes improving.

All the time the house builders keep chasing figures, both profit and number of new homes built the NHBC will have
to keep paying out for defects.  It will only get worse as the Building Regulations get even more onerous.
