New protection for new home buyers

Home buyers can expect higher standards from the residential construction sector thanks to a newly enhanced licensing system.

The BC government is establishing new qualifications and continuing education requirements for residential home builders and renovators, under the Homeowner Protection Act.

“Our goal is to protect new home buyers across BC, said Rich Coleman, Minister Responsible for Housing.


Complying with the Homeowner Protection Act

BC Housing is a provincial government agency that helps protect home buyers by:
  • overseeing compliance with the Homeowner Protection Act and
    the Homeowner Protection Regulation;
  • licensing residential builders;
  • administering owner-builder authorizations;
  • providing new home warranty information; and
  • offering resources such as a New Homes Registry database.
