Depending on the progress of the plot you purchase, you may be able to choose finishes, such as kitchen work tops and tiles, and flooring options.
The earlier you decide to reserve, the more choices you will have, which may include a variety of carpet and floor coverings. However, be aware that not all developers include floor coverings as options, it is a question you will need to ask.
Buying a new build comes with a guarantee and the peace of mind that everything is brand new.
Check with your developer what their guarantee covers and how long it lasts for, durations can vary from 5 to 10 years. At the handover of your new build home, your developer will normally spend some time with you to show where everything is and give you the guarantees for kitchen appliances, boilers, etc.
Reserve your plot and future home.
After deciding on your plot, the sales consultant will ask for a deposit. The amount can differ from between developers and always check how much of the deposit will be returned if you are unable to proceed to full purchase. Once you have paid the deposit, your plot will be taken off the market and you will be advised of approximate completion dates. You will also be added to the reservation list and given a copy. The consultant will provide updates and will invite you to the site for update meetings and will ask you to choose your flooring and finishes if necessary.
