New Homes and developments
Buying a new build has a lot of advantages. Low energy costs, the option to select fixture and fittings, a 10-year warranty from NHBC and very little required to decorate and personalise your new home.
However, it’s also not as straightforward as buying an older property. New homes can include annual maintenance fees and non-refundable deposits. You need to be aware that building work may continue around you for some time even after you move in, and developers will often want you to sign and exchange contracts weeks before you can complete, even if your current property hasn’t sold.
Barrows & Forrester work with reputable developers and housebuilders to offer the best in new build properties, from one-bed apartments to luxury penthouses. Our property experts will advise you on every aspect of purchasing your new home, including buying off-plan, the right questions to ask your developer and understanding the fine-print of buyer schemes.
