With developments across London, carefully chosen for excellent transports links and investment credentials, a Barratt London property is not only a great investment, it’s also the perfect place for you to call home in the world's favourite capital city. 

A blank canvas for you to personalise

We offer you the opportunity to style your new Barratt London home just the way you want by choosing from our impressive range of upgrades and enhancements. Select your preferred flooring, furnishings, appliances, fixtures, fittings and much more, to make our house your home1.

Safe and secure

Feel safe in your new home. Barratt London developments offer greater safety and security than second-hand, older homes because they have secure double-glazed windows, fire resistant materials, circuit breakers and smoke alarms as standard. You’ll also benefit from lower insurance premiums and greater protection for your belongings because all our apartments and townhouses are fitted with modern locks. Living within a development also offers that extra piece of mind of a concierge service and on-site property management.

A new home you'll love, covered by the ten-year NHBC Buildmark Warranty

When you move into a new-build home, you expect everything to be pristine and in working order. With a new Barratt London home you can expect it to stay that way, with the ten-year structural NHBC Buildmark Warranty and a two-year fixtures and fittings warranty2.

Just a 5% deposit with Help to Buy

There has never been a better time to buy a new build home in London with Help to Buy – a Government-backed initiative that is only available on new build properties. All you need is a 5% deposit and a 55% mortgage. The ‘Help to Buy Equity Loan’ covers the remaining 40% on homes worth up to £600,000.

No chain, no survey, no hassle

Buying a second-hand home can put you at the whim of unreliable or downright unscrupulous sellers. A major advantage of buying a new home is that there’s no upwards chain or structural survey to worry about. We can recommend independent financial, mortgage and legal specialists who are experienced in new-build purchases and can take the hassle out of the process for you. You can also rest assured that Barratt London's customer experience  team will be with you every step of the way to make sure you have a stress-free move-in experience. 

On-site property management

Here’s a reassuring presence… Buying a home in a new Barratt London home means you’ll be serviced by our on-site property management company, BRAM3 - a not-for-profit property management company set up to exclusively manage and maintain the communal areas and surroundings of all our developments.
