What is a new build?
A new build is a property that has not been bought (even if it was occupied) within two years of its construction. This also includes properties bought from the plan.
How long does it take to build a new build house?
The design and building of a new house will take 2 to 4 months to complete. It may take up to 6 months, if the weather is inclement, construction supply is disrupted or you call for change during the building phase. In most cases, just over half this time is taken to secure construction and other building permits.
Are new builds better than older homes?
New builds are more energy-efficient than older homes and offer better insulation. Also, new buildings are better equipped to reflect the reality of modern life. So, yes, new builds are often superior to older homes.
Which is cheaper, buying or building a home?
Green homes often cost more in advance, but costs can be justified and offset by long-term energy savings. Therefore, while you may spend less to buy a house, it is cost-effective in the long run to build one from the ground up.
Can you get a loan to build a house?
Unless you pay in cash, you must arrange a construction loan to start a new build project. Some lenders grant a one-step loan where interest is paid only while the building is in progress and is converted into a mortgage after construction. The advantage is that you only have to pay the final costs once.
Do you need a down payment for a construction loan?
You will be required to make a big down payment before you are approved for a construction loan. Usually, 20% is the minimum you have to pay for a home loan but some lenders charge up to 25%.
What sort of warranty will you provide with my new home?
When we build for you, your new home is protected by the NHBC Build Mark Warranty, which gives a standard 10-year warranty. You can visit our warranty page for more information.
Can I visit my new home while it is under construction?
We know you want to visit your new home during construction and we will do everything we can to provide you with reasonable access. However, while the new construction site is exciting, it can also be dangerous. Your safety is important to us.For this reason, please contact your assigned representative before visiting the construction site.

We reserve the right to request that a protective helmet be worn and that visitors be accompanied by a worker employee during the visit. We also reserve the right to decline your request to visit the construction site if there are safety concerns. We may also ask you to follow a list of common safety measures during your visit.

What do I need to know before I buy land to build a home on?
Before you buy land for the construction of your own home, you need to ask a few questions:

  •         Are there local utilities such as water, sewage, gas and electricity?
  •         Is the property intended for housing purposes?
  •         Does the community charge special fees?
  •         Can a septic tank be approved at all for the type of soil of this property?
I want to build a home. Where do I start?
A lot of first-time home builders have this problem and we always advise that you get in touch with us first before taking any further step.

We discuss floor plans, design, footage and the area where you want to live with you. Architects and house plans follow this first meeting.

Is it possible to change the floor plan layout and keep the same outside appearance?
Yes, it is. In fact, all our plans are tailored to the needs and budget of customers like you while also taking full advantage of the footage. However, if there is a plan or design that really appeals to you, we’ll be happy to adopt it.

Alternatively, you can use one of our plans as a starting point for the final project. We can offer different options for a particular floor plan, changing the shape of the roof, colours, and materials, until we find something you like.

Is it possible to build an environmentally friendly home?
At Clifton Hill and Montpelier Builders & Construction we are proud to be environmentally aware and  friendly.As an environmentally friendly building contractor, we are involved in the construction and design of eco-friendly homes that engender the use of less water and electricity.

Our commitment to this philosophy has radically changed the type of products currently used in new build projects, resulting in reduced waste and increased use of recycled materials. The goal is a home that looks good, feels good, and minimizes environmental impact.

Wherever possible, Clifton Hill and Montpelier Builders & Construction uses environmentally friendly concrete and timber in new build construction and constantly works with suppliers who share the same principles. We offer advice and solutions that will make your home more environmentally friendly without compromising your budget.

How soon can you start building my home?
If there is planning permission and all relevant permits, we are normally on-site within 4-8 weeks after signing the contract.
Do all new builds have NHBC?
To offer the BuildMark cover, the developer must build in accordance with NHBC requirements.They are included in NHBC standards that contain technical requirements, performance standards and guidelines for the planning and construction of new builds, which must be followed by all NHBC registered builders and developers.

At Clifton Hill and Montpelier Builders & Construction, we have a tradition of strict compliance with NHBC guidelines. In fact, this is the basis for a 10-year warranty that our customers enjoy.
