Six Reasons for Buying a New Build Home
All new build homes come with their snags but there are many advantages to buying a new build home. Here we have listed six good reasons for buying a new build home.
All new homes come with a 10 year warranty, provided by the likes of LABC, NHBC, Checkmate, Zurich, Premier.
The warranty is an umbrella to support your case in the event of a resolution. It doesn’t guarantee your home will be snag free. They can be seen as an insurance for the developer and not the home owner but ultimately you will always be provided with a practical completion note or warranty.
New homes today are thermally very efficient and are up to date using the very latest building products and materials. This is reflected in your energy performance certificate which has an energy rating performed on the new home. Items like double glazing and efficient boilers help maintain house efficiency. The use of low carbon energy light bulbs further enhance this. Be sure that halogen and tungsten bulbs are NOT used. These use a lot of energy resulting in higher energy costs.
New homes are well supported by safer locking mechanisms compared to older houses. ( Secure by Design on Front doors ) with Multi Point locking. Fire preventative measures are added such as smoke/heat detectors, intumescent strips with fire doors on three storey properties which is a legal requirement under law. Security lights and PIR systems fitted as standard are always good forms of security.
If the developer has concluded the deal with no chain then the move should be hassle free. This is further enhanced whereby a part exchange is included and the developer is buying your home.
