Buying a new-build home is an exciting option if you’re a first-time buyer.
New-build homes typically have lower maintenance costs and come with warranty periods giving you greater peace of mind. And they often feature integrated appliances, so you don’t need to buy washing machines, fridge and freezers.
Government-led schemes offer helpful routes to home ownership.

Getting a mortgage
Different lenders, including banks and building societies, offer different mortgages. It’s good to shop around for one that suits you. Speaking to an independent mortgage adviser (also known as a broker) can really help.
We work with a panel of advisers who are available to assist you. They’re already familiar with our developments and have expertise in all the buying options we offer. They’ll help save you time and guide you in getting an agreement in principle.
