The advantages of new buildings
To live or invest
Buying new offers many advantages, especially in terms of the quality of the home and residence, energy savings, legal protection and financial benefits.
Latest generation technical and environmental standards
Your new flat meets current building standards, reinforced by the requirements of the NF Habitat reference. This translates into concrete daily benefits: a healthy interior, safe, pleasant to live in and controlled expenses, but also respect for the environment.
The possibility to
personalising your home

Reduced notary fees
When buying in a new building, you benefit from reduced notary fees (2.5 to 3% of the purchase price compared with 7 to 8% for the purchase of a home in the old one).
Limited maintenance costs
While old homes can quickly require renovation or maintenance work, new homes and common areas (facades, lifts, etc.) do not incur costs for several years.
Off plan sale guarantees
Off plan sale has the advantage of providing guarantees to the purchaser, of a financial and technical nature:
1. The building completion guarantee
The purpose of the building completion guarantee is to ensure the purchaser the completion of the building, in the event of default by the developer, by the payment of the sums necessary for this completion. It can be provided by a bank, surety or insurance company.
2. The sound guarantee
The developer is required to deliver a property that meets the regulatory requirements for sound insulation. The developer guarantees this obligation for a period of one year from the date the first purchaser enters the premises. When they are of such a nature as to affect the habitability of the property, acoustic disorders may be covered by the developer's ten-year guarantee.
3. Warranty for apparent defects
The developer is also bound by the guarantee for apparent construction defects like any seller. However, in off plan sale, since the purchaser cannot see the property he acquires at the time of the sale, this guarantee runs for one year from the date of acceptance of the work or entry into the purchaser's premises. Apparent defects should not be confused with apparent defects of conformity. The latter are assessed in relation to the developer's contractual commitments. They must be reported within the same time frame as apparent defects (one year from the date of taking possession of the premises).
4. The guarantee of perfect completion.
Legally, the guarantee of perfect completion is owed by the company that carried out the work to the developer, for a period of one year following the acceptance of the building. However, in order to facilitate the repair of any problems that may arise during this period, the developer is the purchaser's privileged interlocutor. It is therefore generally provided that these disorders be reported to him so that the developer can call back the company concerned and thus remedy these disorders as quickly as possible.
5. The two-year guarantee
The developer is responsible for the proper functioning of the equipment components of the property sold. This guarantee runs for a period of two years from receipt.
6. The ten-year guarantee.
The developer is responsible for latent defects that affect the solidity or purpose of the dwelling, which may occur within 10 years of receipt of the building. The damage insurance (DO), to which the developer is required to suscribe and whose benefit he transfers to the purchaser, pre-finances the work to repair these disorders. Disorders that do not meet these criteria are the contractual responsibility of the developer. They must also be reported within 10 years from the reception of the building.
