Customer Service

We work hard to ensure that all of our customers who are buying a house in Devon have a smooth and stress-free experience.

We do everything we can to minimise the risk of issues arising and know that, at times, you may need assistance from our experienced customer service team. As with all home purchases, buying a house is an important step in your life – whether you’re a first-time buyer or fifteenth! That’s why we provide support during every step of the home buying journey.

Our support continues after buying a house in the South West from us, too, as there may be reasons you need to get in touch after completion. In order for us to deal with issues efficiently, please bear the following in mind:

  • All properties are covered by one of the following Policies: a 10-year
    NHBC or LABC policy. If you are unsure which policy you have, you can check the information pack you were given when you were buying your new home.
  • For the first 2 years, it is our responsibility to rectify any defects (as outlined in the policy). This gives you a couple of years to settle into your new home with the peace of mind that we will always be around to help.
  • Please remember that when buying a house through Devonshire Homes, you do still have a responsibility to maintain your home and report defects as soon as noticed. Failure to do so may invalidate your policy for the first 2 years cover.
