Commenting on the Q2 figures, NHBC Chief Executive Mike Quinton said: “Our latest statistics show that the industry continues to consolidate on the strong growth in registrations seen over recent years.
“These registrations reflect continued industry confidence in the run-up to the EU Referendum at the end of June. Indeed, this period was the strongest quarter since Q4 2007, albeit still some way off levels seen over a decade ago.
“NHBC remains fully committed to support the industry to build new homes to the highest possible standards.”
