Do I get a warranty with a home built by Modbox Developments?

It is important to clarify the specific warranty terms and conditions with Modbox Developments or any builder you are working with before purchasing a new home from them. Generally, new home builders provide warranties to protect homeowners against defects and structural issues that may arise after the home is built. These warranties can vary in duration and coverage, so it is essential to review and understand the specific warranty offerings from Modbox Developments or the builder.

Typically, new home warranties cover different components of the home for specific periods of time, such as:

1. Structural Warranty: This warranty covers the structural integrity of the home, including the foundation, walls, and roof. It typically lasts for a longer period, such as 10 years.

2. Systems Warranty: This warranty covers major systems within the home, such as electrical, plumbing, and HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning). The duration of this warranty may vary, but it is commonly around 2-5 years.

3. Workmanship Warranty: This warranty covers the quality of workmanship and materials used in the construction of your home. It typically has a shorter duration, usually around 1 year.

Additionally, it’s important to review any exclusions or limitations within the warranty, such as wear and tear, normal maintenance, or damages caused by improper use or neglect. These specifics can vary from one builder to another, so it’s crucial to understand the warranty provided by Modbox Developments or the builder you are considering.

Before purchasing a new home, carefully review all warranty documents, ask questions, and seek clarification from the builder if needed. It may also be helpful to consult with a solicitor who can help you understand the warranty terms and ensure your interests are protected.
