CFSH vs HQM

Wednesday 4th November, 2015

Since the Government’s announcement earlier this year to simplify regulations and standards, Local Authorities no longer require the Code for Sustainable Homes (CFSH) as a planning condition for new approvals. 

Here at Elvet Consultants, we are still working with existing clients to deliver the CFSH but as licensed code assessors, we are also now focusing on delivering against the new standard, the Home Quality Mark (HQM).

Whilst it is still a requirement for Registered Social Landlords under the HCA’s Affordable Funding Programme 2015-2018 to fulfil existing contractual arrangements to certify against the CFSH, our surveyors are, fully trained and licensed professionals that will assess and score the aspects of a new home and provide an overall HQM quality rating.
