Why buy a new Home?
When you purchase an older property, you’re inheriting not only someone else’s decor, but also their problems, such as inefficient heating and insulation. On average, new homes are now 40% more energy efficient which means you will make significant savings on the running costs of your new home. Your new Deveron Home has full central heating and double glazing as standard and will come complete with advanced insulation and climate controls.
What is a SAP rating?
Standard Assessment Procedure rating is based on an estimate of the annual heating and hot water costs per sqm of the home. The SAP value estimates how much energy will be used by the home; the more efficient the heating and hot water system and the better the insulation, the higher the SAP value will be. Most Deveron homes achieve a rating of between 85 and 100, though the national average is only 43.
What safety features will be fitted in my new Deveron Home?
Modern 3-point locking systems are fitted as standard to all external doors. Locking windows are in every room and well-positioned external lights will help make your new Deveron Home extra secure. High specification fire resistant materials and wired smoke alarms also provide a safe environment for you and your family.
Who looks after any open-spaces or play parks within the development?
All Deveron Homes developments are maintained by a factor. Charges vary from site to site. However, your sales advisor will explain more about factoring for your development at the time of reservation.
What exactly is Snagging?
We are proud of our 5* NHBC Pride in The Job reputation so we don’t expect you to find any major issues with your new home. But put simply, snagging is an exercise undertaken by our site team to check the condition of your property before your keys are handed over. This ensures that when you receive your home it is ready for occupation. Within 14days of your move you can let us know of any items requiring attention. You will be entitled to use up to 4hours of trades time; perhaps to hang pictures, install curtain poles or help with touch up paint work.
What do we do about the guarantees and warranties for appliances within our home?
Owners are wholly responsible for ensuring all guarantees are in place. After you are settled in your new home, take a few minutes to complete the cards and forms especially those for your heating system, boiler and cooker. Manufacturers will not accept liability for faults if guarantees are not registered. Your boiler will be guaranteed for a year after occupation So in order to maintain your guarantee, owners must ensure they engage a Gas safe engineer to check the boiler at the end of that period.
What is NHBC?
The National House Building Council provides inspection and technical services to raise the standards of new homes. Your new Deveron home will be covered by a 10yr warranty called “Buildmark” to provide invaluable protection for the structure of your new home. Full details can be found on www.nhbc.co.uk
