We decided to buy a new build home as we really enjoyed watching our home grow each day as it was being built. We also loved choosing our options and putting our own stamp on it before even moving in!

Buying Schemes

Buying a new build home comes with a number of options that can make the goal of home ownership achievable and more affordable.

Nearly 190,000 people have taken advantage of the scheme.

New build home warranties are designed to offer buyers peace of mind. Every Taylor Wimpey home comes with our own 2 year warranty and the NHBC Buildmark 10 year warranty as standard. Even before the 10 year warranty begins, NHBC carries out independent inspections at key stages during construction to help to minimise issues for the future homeowner.

No chain

In most cases you can move into your new home as soon as it’s complete, no waiting. Being the first owner means you won’t have a chain of buyers above you, which has the potential to cause delays and unnecessary stress. Buying a new build home can take away the risk of lengthy chains.

Save on bills

Everyone wants to save money on bills and research shows that new build homeowners could save an average of £649 a year on energy bills. Data released by the HBF shows that 84% of new build homes have the top A or B rating for energy efficiency. Modern building regulations are driving energy savings through the use of efficient materials and innovative design. We are committed to helping our homebuyers save on energy.

High specification

New homes are built to a higher standard than ever before, from the latest building materials to the newest appliances. From working with the Environment Agency at planning stage to ensuring that NHBC complete multiple checks throughout the build, we are committed to building new superior homes.

Modern living

New homes are built to make use of every inch of space. Research shows 17% of living space in older style properties often goes unused, which translates to £34,000 of a £200,000 house going to waste.

New homes, on the other hand, provide flexible living space whatever your circumstances, whether you are single, in a couple, a growing family or retired. That spare room can be turned into a cosy nursery, a stylish office, your personal cinema or even that home gym you’ve always wanted.

Whenever you move house, it’s natural to want to put your own stamp on things. It’s very rare that you can move into an older property without making any changes, whether that’s a brand new boiler or at least a lick of paint. Recent figures illustrate that the average-spend on home improvements comes in at £13,472, it’s no wonder that new build homes are so appealing. A new build home offers you a blank canvas and even allows you to work with the builder to help shape your forever home.
