New Home Buyer Protection Board

The New Home Buyer Protection Board (NHBPB) hears appeals of decisions issued by the New Home Buyer Protection Office. Board members are appointed by the Minister of Municipal Affairs.

New Home Buyer legislation is an addition to the existing regulatory regime at the building permit stage. No permits for new homes may be issued unless proof of coverage is in place. No homes may be offered for sale or sold unless coverage is in place. The registrar of the NHBPO can deal with owner-builder authorizations, refuse hardship exemptions, issue compliance orders and administrative penalties and make determination of building status. Should the builder choose to appeal decisions made by the Registrar, the appeal lies with the New Home Buyer Protection Board.
