Warrenties on all conversions and developemnts, Poppy Developments

We pride ourselves on our developments which all come with a 6 or 10 year warranty by the two leading warranty providers in the UK, RICS and NHBC. Mortgage Lenders will generally only lend on a newly built or newly converted property where the property is covered by a warranty scheme (for example, NHBC warranty) or a Professional Consultant Certificate.

New Builds

NHBC is the UK’s leading home warranty and insurance provider. NHBC’s Buildmark warranty covers around 80% of new homes built in the UK and currently protects approximately 1.6 million homes for up to 10 years.

Barns and Conversions

The Professional Consultant Certificate is a 6 year warranty which covers barn conversions. It is regulated by The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and is designed to enable lenders to lend on conversions and development properties that are not covered by an NHBC or similar warranty for loan purposes, when signed off by an appropriately qualified professional. The certificate confirms that the consultant has monitored the construction of the property and that he will remain liable to the owner and any lenders for up to six years.
