All our homes come with a CRL10 year Insuarance backed Warranty – this means we have complied with the CRL Standards which set out the technical requirements for design, materials and workmanship in new home construction. This is just one of the added benefits of buying a new home.
The 10 year warranty cover comes in two parts, here’s how it works:
Part 1: 10 year insurance backed structural warranty from CRL. Your new home comes with a 10 year structural warranty, meaning that the cost of fixing any damage caused by faults in specified parts of the home, usually the structural and weather proofing elements is covered.
Part 2: 2 year fixtures and fittings warranty. During the first two years, you have the added reassurance that if something goes wrong within your home, and is covered by the 2 year fixtures and fittings warranty, we will make sure it is put right.

The vendor insures your new home until the moment of legal completion. From then on you are responsible for the insurance of both the buildings and its contents.
If you have any problems meeting deadlines please inform us immediately. We will do our utmost to accommodate delays but regrettably we may have to put your home back on the market if you are unable to meet your exchange deadline. However we can sometimes arrange for you to have first choice of future releases.
The property will normally be reserved for 28 days as this is when contract exchange is expected to take place.
To reserve a propery please speak to Savills Estate Agent Chester our appointed Sales Agent. -Savills Estate Agent Chester - 01244 323 232.
Savills will confirm the price of the property and advise whether it is still available for purchase. They will ask you a few questions to ensure you are in a position to reserve a property and request two forms of ID.
Your reservation fee reserves your new home. During this reserved period your new home will be withdrawn from sale and it will not be subject to any price increases. We will then ask you to exchange contracts and pay a deposit on exchange (usually 28 days after reservation).
What happens if I miss a deadline?
Unfortunately, you cannot reserve a property before it is released for sale. However, you can advise our appointed Sales Agent (details below) of your interest in a particular plot. We can then let you know once the plot is released for sale. Savills Estate Agent Chester - 01244 323 232.
Should you cancel your reservation, other than for some very specific reasons noted at reservtion then we will retain the reservation fee to cover reasonable costs and expenses.
