How NHBC warranty can help home owners and renters
When buying or renting a new-build property, no end users wants to enter a new home with the worry of the quality of the structure.
From leaky roofs to unsafe foundations, a NHBC warranty covers a new-build property from head to toe to ensure that the end user has the best quality home to move into.
Generally speaking, a NHBC warranty will cover the first 10 years after the property’s legal completion and will cover everything from the roof, walls and ceilings, staircases, windows and double glazing, access to the site and even the foundations.
Whilst the warranty does not cover general wear and tear, the builder will fix any issues that are not considered everyday maintenance for the first two years.
A NHBC warranty is particularly useful for property investors, as it means that any major issues will be covered for the first 10 years, meaning that their profits will not be eaten into in the unlikely case of an issue occurring.
Given the high standards imposed by NHBC, it is safe to assume that the property development will be delivered to an exceptional level. This quality assurance will help the property to hold its value on the property market and to be an attractive option when the owner wishes to sell the house in question.
For renters, the draw of high quality housing can help to underpin rental returns as happy tenants tend to occupy properties for longer periods.
A property that has a 10-year NHBC warranty provides a reassurance for those who have invested money into the property. In terms of considerate construction, developers must ensure that the new-build property coming onto the market will last for many years to come.
