12 month rolling customer satisfaction ‘recommend’ data
The table below shows the latest 12-month rolling data from the National new homes customer satisfaction survey (CSS).
The quarterly reporting series is a new one, launched in June 2019 to provide more regular up to date information from the CSS.
The new series shows the builders’ percentage ‘yes’ score for the key question "Would you recommend your builder to a friend?".
Scores are published quarterly, using the latest 12-month rolling data, approximately four weeks after each ‘reporting period’ closes.
Survey forms are sent 8 weeks after customers legally complete the purchase of their new home. Customers then have 12 weeks to complete and return their forms. Each ‘reporting period’ thus closes 20 weeks after the end of the quarter.
Proposed quarterly data publication dates;
- Q1 (house purchases completed Oct-Dec) quarterly data published June
- Q2 (house purchases completed Jan-Mar) quarterly data published September
- Q3 (house purchases completed Apr-Jun) quarterly data published December
- Q4 (house purchases completed Jul-Sep) quarterly data published March
The industry Customer Satisfaction Survey was launched in 2006. Builders are awarded an annual ‘Star Rating’ based on all their responses to the key question ‘would you recommend your builder to a friend?’ over a full 12 month period. Star ratings are published every March.
