Customer Code

Fletcher Homes operates its business following core values and ethics that can be translated into measurable targets.

Customer satisfaction is the key driver in all that we do. To achieve this, we ensure our employees bring a high level of professionalism and integrity to all our operations at whatever level.

More Advice

Unlike most purchases, buying a property is a major life decision. The Consumer Code for Home Builders gives protection and rights to purchasers of new homes, ensuring that all new home buyers are treated fairly and are fully informed about their purchase before and after they sign the contract. We ensure customer care is our highest priority and we do everything possible to make the experience as enjoyable and efficient as possible. While you are choosing, purchasing and settling in to your new home, we are happy to go the extra mile to help the process run smoothly and resolve any questions or issues you might have.

To make sure we deliver on our promises, we follow a strict code of practice. The Code is designed to help Home Buyers who, on or after 1st April 2010, reserve to buy a new or newly converted Home built by a Home Builder under the insurance protection of one of the supporting Home Warranty Bodies.

We are proud to say that the customer feedback we receive is exceptionally positive.

Advice on how to buy a new home in Shropshire

How to Buy Advice...

At Fletcher Homes we aim to make the whole purchasing process as smooth as possible. Our experienced Sales Consultants will work with you, providing as much advice as you need to ensure your move is completed swiftly and within agreed time scales.

To help you with the purchase, here are some simple steps to guide you...

More Advice

Choosing your Fletcher home

the process starts when you choose and reserve your specific plot. You will be asked to complete a reservation form and pay a reservation fee - usually between £350 and £500 depending on the property you reserve.

Appoint an Independent Financial Advisor (IFA)
To finance the purchase via a mortgage, it's important to appoint an Independent Financial Advisor right away. You may already have one, but if not, speak to our Sales Consultant who will put you in touch with a good IFA. With such wide choice of mortgages available a good IFA can save you thousands of pounds by getting the right mortgage for your needs.

Appoint a Solicitor
Conveyancing costs vary from practice to practice, so we recommend you speak to several solicitors and obtain quotations for their work. Once you've appointed a solicitor, they will ask for some initial funding to cover search costs etc. It is important to pay this straight away so as not to delay the conveyancing process.

Important Note:
Ideally you will need the information from steps 2 & 3 at the point you reserve your home. If in doubt, our Sales Consultant will advise you.

Apply for your Mortgage
Once appointed, your IFA will work diligently to find you the best mortgage deal. It is important to progress your application quickly and pay for any survey fees etc., immediately.  Ideally you should have applied for your mortgage within a week of reserving your new home.

Make an Appointment with Your Solicitor
You will need to meet with your solicitor at least one week before exchange of contracts (that's the point at which you are legally committed to completing the purchase of your new home). At this meeting they will take you through the results of any searches and will want to ensure everything is in order ready for exchange of contracts. You will also be asked to sign your contract and pay your exchange deposit - usually 10% of the purchase price.

Exchange of Contracts
Once your solicitor exchanges contracts, a legal completion date will be set (however this may have been discussed sooner).

Home Demonstration
Shortly before the completion date, our Sales Consultant will invite you to view your new home by pre-arranged appointment. This meeting gives you the opportunity to view everything prior to moving in and gives us the chance to ensure you are entirely satisfied before final handover.

Legal Completion
At this point your solicitor completes the purchase on your behalf, drawing down mortgage funds as required. Once legal completion takes place, the keys to our home will be made available from our Sales Consultant, who will be there to meet you at the property to ensure a smooth handover and read metres etc, ready for you to move in!

Moving In
You will probably have booked a professional removal company already, so it's time to unpack those boxes and create the beautiful new home you've dreamed of.

Enjoy!!
Without doubt this is the most important part - and often frequently over looked! Now is the time to enjoy your new Fletcher home, so make sure you take time to do just that.

Shropshire New Homes The Finishing Touches

Finishing Touches

At Fletcher Homes, we believe it’s our attention to the smallest details which makes our homes stand out. We hand select every fixture, fitting, finish and optional extra with the greatest care, so you can rest assured that everything is of the highest standard.

 

More Advice

To provide an inspired living environment we don’t just make the most intelligent use of the space available, we utilise smooth finish matt emulsion to walls and white ceilings and woodwork to better reflect the light. 

With entertainment, communications and connectivity being such a crucial part of modern living, you’ll find TV and BT points in all the right places (ready for landline and satellite service supply).

To ensure your home is as money and energy saving as possible, we’ve used the highest quality insulations, fitted UPVC double glazed windows and installed Grade A energy efficient gas fired condensing boilers. Our New homes are already 6 times more energy-efficient and generate over 60% less CO2 emissions than older style homes, which is the equivalent of driving 10,000 miles less a year per household. So new home owners can take comfort that they are doing their bit for the environment. But it's not just about the planet, improved energy efficient saves money too and living in a new home can reduce energy bills by more than £500 per year, enough to pay for a holiday!

Whilst you are away from your home you can have peace of mind that the security is taken care off. External doors feature primed steel doorsets with multipoint locking system, and windows all have locks helping make your home as secure.
