    I’ve got a few chipped bricks around the property.

    The developer has said they have to view them from 10m away?

    I can’t see anything in the NHBC guide for this?

    To my knowledge, NHBC don't use distance. From memory, no chips or cracks should be larger than 15mm.

    Bear in mind that replacing a brick might stand out more than a small insignificant chip.

    From the guide to finishes.

    But I would consult the brick manufacturer's guide too.
