Why buy new properties in London?

Choosing a new home can be challenging, and choosing whether to buy a new build, or even a property that doesn’t yet exist, is one of many decisions buyers and investors face.

The running costs and the potential for unforeseen complications that come with old properties are cited by many buyers and investors to choose new build properties.

But why else should you consider buying brand new, or buying off plan? Discover more below.

Designed for modern living

Modern living doesn’t stop at interiors and brickwork.

New build properties are purpose-built with contemporary urban living in mind.

Our Developments

Take our Keybridge development, for example. Situated in the heart of Vauxhall, just minutes away from the River Thames, these new build apartments are built with fresh interiors and modern features like:

  • Cosy, space-saving underfloor heating with wall mounted controls

  • Built-in kitchen appliances (with a hassle-free two year warranty covering them)

  • Underground parking with security

  • The added peace of mind of a 24hr concierge

  • 10-year NHBC Buildmark warranty

Maintenance made easy

With new build properties, you can rest assured that your boiler, electrical and plumbing systems are brand new and energy efficient – which means fewer maintenance worries for you.

All new build developments have a 10-year NHBC Buildmark warranty, which includes the following:

  • Ceilings
  • Foundations
  • Load-bearing parts of flooring
  • Walls, external cladding, balconies, curtain walling

And Mount Anvil homes also have a two-year fixtures and fittings warranty, giving you an extra level of reassurance and peace of mind.

We also give every homeowner direct contact with a named Customer Experience Manager – no faceless helpdesk, but an experienced professional who can answer any questions and take care of any issues. That peace of mind and predictability is priceless whether you’re living in the new build or want to manage tenants hassle-free.  

If you weigh up the cost of maintenance for an older property against the 10-year cover you get with a new build home, you could save yourself unnecessary costs.

You can learn more about the NHBC Buildmark warranty and what it covers from our sales team – give them a call on 020 7776 1816. For international enquiries, you can contact our International Sales Team.

No chain

Instead of having to liaise with the previous occupier, or wait for them to move out, the only people you need to speak with when buying a new build property or off the plan is the sales team.

Buying a new build property is a great way to avoid getting stuck in a chain of uncertainty. It also gives you freedom – as well as knowing you’re the first person to enjoy life in that gleaming new home. If you buy early enough off-plan you often have choices on colour palettes and layouts, meaning you don’t need to incur hefty costs to make sure that your home is reflective of your tastes.

First class facilities

Purpose-built residential new builds also include modern amenities. For example, our Hampstead Manor development features:

  • Swimming pool, gym and spa with sauna and a hammam
  • Town car service
  • 24-hour concierge service
  • Beautifully landscaped gardens with nine artworks by the Hampstead School of Art
