Buying A New Build Home
If you are buying a new build home, look for Secured by Design approval. A person’s home is likely to be the biggest purchase they ever make. You will expect your future safety and security to have been included. However, Private house builders are under NO obligation to provide any physical security other than very basic to your newly built home.
There are developers who do see the significance of minimum standards for physical security, and so win the Secured by Design Developers Award. The Award is given to building developments which are built to our guidelines and so reduce the opportunity for crime. They should be able to produce a certificate co-signed by the local Police force endorsing their achievement.
