The government has announced that there will be a New Homes Ombudsman - a watchdog that will champion homebuyers, protect their interests and hold developers to account.

It intends to legislate to require all new developers to belong to a new homes ombudsman.

The aim is to ensure house buyers can be confident that when they purchase a new home, they get the quality of build and finish they expected.

Government will work with consumers and industry to develop its proposals and publish more details in due course.
