Our clients are using this novel design to create space in tight spots in and around the City of London. This is a great way to redevelop within an urban situation where space is very much at a premium. This modular system is helping property developers in places such as Birmingham, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester to utilise the unused flat roof areas to many existing high storey blocks. As the monitoring surveyor we will check for the following: capability of the existing foundations and structure to accept the new increased loads, means of escape in case of fire, general structural stability and things such as the integrity of the existing and new roof structures.

Alternatives to the NHBC warranty

If your house has just been built your mortgage company will always ask for a building warranty or similar as part of granting you a mortgage or loan on that property.

The building warranty many have heard of is the NHBC.

For smaller builders and self builders the cost of an NHBC warranty can be extremely high.

The following are alternatives to the NHBC building warranty and often cost less than 50% of the price of getting a NHBC warranty.

Option 1 – a 6 year structural certificate known as a professional consultants certificate.

Option – a 10 year structural warranty called ABC+ Warranty.

Both options to help you secure a mortgage are available through a company called Professional Consultants certificates Ltd.  Contact them on www.architectscertificate.co.uk or by calling 0845 680 0467.

How can I get a warranty for my new build house? 0845 680 0467

Building warranty supplier 6 and 10 year availableLarge house builders will often get an NHBC warranty on their new build homes which offer protection to the purchaser and enable a mortgage to be secured on the property.

Smaller builders and self builders have a better value scheme open to them known as the CML Professional Consultants certificate (previously called Architect’s Certificate).

The architect certifies that the house has been properly constructed in accordance with the national building regulations and the plans and specifications.

The larger guarantee providers, such as the NHBC, are not always the best choice for the smaller house builder, developer or self-builder since:
1. They will not step in if you have already commenced on site.
2. They act on behalf of their scheme member i.e. the contractor
3. They will require a bond payment from unregistered builders
4. All fees have to be paid up front whether the guarantee is issued or not
5. Often their inspectors are not chartered professionals

The whole point of any scheme that requires regular inspections throughout the build is to ensure that the dwelling is built to such a standard that problems are eliminated. In this respect a chartered architect or surveyor will provide a more diligent service than an employee of a large company because they are personally liable in cases of negligence.

Remember that a chartered professional has undertaken at least seven years of study, examination and supervision by senior architects before given licence to practice. Their reputation and their future in the industry depends totally upon the quality of their service (‘duty of care’).

www.architectscertificates.co.uk have been providers of CML Professional Consultants Certificates since 1989, their certificates are often 50% cheaper than NHBC cover. Call on 0845 680 0467 for a quote today.

NHBC recruitment drive

NHBC is embarking on its biggest recruitment drive in 30 years with some 100 new technical jobs being created.

NHBC is saying that new home registrations in the UK for 2013 were up 28% compared to the previous year, with what it called “signs of a broad based recovery in many different regions and the highest new house-building volumes in London for a generation”.

As part of its campaign, the NHBC say ” It will be recruiting 80 new building inspectors with new management roles also being created. More surveyors, engineers and special project managers will also be recruited to ensure that the appropriate technical support is available for builders and their design teams, both on site and during the design stage”.

Here at Professional Consultants Certificate Ltd, the UK’s leading provider of new home certification, we are expanding to meet the upsurge in house building. We currently have 22 regional surveyors with the best professional qualifications; we have recruited from Chartered surveyors, engineers and architects all of which comply to the Council of Mortgage Lenders criteria. Whether its a warranty or a certificate we can help, we can even step in at a very late stage in the construction, which is something the NHBC refuse to do.

How do I buy a building warranty ?

Structural 10 year warrantyA full repairing structural warranty is sometimes the preferred option for a new home or converted property.

The most common new home warranty used by builders is an NHBC warranty. For small builders and self builders the cost of obtaining NHBC cover is often cost prohibitive, so we are pleased to share details of a great building warranty scheme for significantly lower cost.

This new warranty scheme is called ABC+ Warranty.

The ABC+ Warranty scheme not only provides builders of new homes a six year professional consultants certificate, but also a full ten year new home latent defects warranty.

This gives builders, new home owners and all mortgage lenders complete peace of mind that the property has the highest level of protection and cover should any problems arise with the property.

ABC+ Warranty is offered by a leading supplier of professional consultants certificates, we are Professional Consultants Certificates Ltd and our surveyors have been issuing certificates across the UK since 1989.

When choosing  ABC+ Warranty we also liaise with your solicitor and/or bank totally inclusive within our ABC+ Warranty scheme and this added benefit is unique within the warranty market place. ABC+ Warranty is most cost effective to initiate from the outset of the project, but never fear, we can still step in very late and still provide the ten year warranty if requested by your purchaser. Our clients tell us that the ABC+ Warranty system is cheaper than most warranty providers despite providing the expert certification by CML professionals.
