A St Albans housebuilding firm is celebrating after receiving a 5-star customer service rating.

Churchill Retirement Living, which has its regional head office on Hatfield Road, received the maximum 5-star rating in the national survey.

Undertaken by industry body the Home Builders Federation (HBF), it saw homeowners rating their satisfaction with the quality of their new property and saying whether they would recommend their housebuilder to a friend.

Over 90 per cent of respondents said they would recommend Churchill, meaning the retirement specialist once again achieved a 5-star rating.

The results of the survey, now in its 14th year, were announced by the HBF’s Executive Chairman, Stewart Baseley, at a special presentation at One Wimpole Street, London on Tuesday, March 26.
