There are a lot of benefits to buying a new home that you would not get from the second-hand market. High quality design and finish as well as the peace of mind you will get from the 10-year CRL Buildmark warranty are obvious, but there are so many other benefits too.
Not only will you avoid having to carry out works to your new home but, by buying new the whole purchasing process is easier. There is no onward chain, the contracts are ready and the title and searches have already been checked.
Energy efficient building methods and a high standard of insulation together with modern appliances mean substantially lower fuel and water bills.
Modern materials such as uPVC, durable and stain resistant composite stone and self-coloured render mean less to maintain in the future.
Unlike a private vendor, Harlequin Homes has a reputation for customer service that we work hard to maintain. We are there for you every step of the way – from helping you through the purchase process & specifying internal fittings, to comprehensive handover meetings and after care that includes a 10-year guarantee.
The ecological cost of constantly repairing, maintaining and heating houses is enormous and it makes sense from all angles to build with a view to low maintenance. At the most basic level it means you have more money to go on holiday. At a macro level it reduces the impact of the huge house repair industry, which consumes massive amounts of fuel and materials.
The code for sustainable homes is the Government-backed national standard for the sustainable design and construction of new homes. It aims to reduce carbon emissions and promote higher standards of sustainable design above the current minimum standards currently set out within building regulations. It also results in significantly lower running costs for our home-buyers.
At Harlequin Homes, we have adopted this standard as part of our strategic approach to design and construction.
