Developer's Measures To Make Your New Home As Safe As Houses
22 May 2014

FOR many people buying a new home, transport links, location, local amenities and of course, price are major factors in the decision making process.

So with National Homes Security May Day coming just around the corner – what better time to remind home buyers about the all important issue of keeping your property safe.

Supported by Yale, the event will take place on 26 May, and will offer tips and advice on DIY projects to make your home more secure and improve the security in time for summer.

However, Linden Homes North can offer peace of mind to customers looking to move to one of their many regional developments – without the need for a do it yourself solution.

The company’s portfolio of properties takes into account all aspects of modern living – from energy efficiency, consumer comfort, right through the security.

All Linden’s new homes come with a range of security measures and features as standard.

These include:

  • Wiring in place for intruder alarm system – giving an excellent basis for the customers to complete the work with a preferred supplier. Some developments are provided with full alarms.
  • Front and back door multi point locking system
  • Security locks to all downstairs and upper floor windows (excluding escape windows).
  • Sensory external lighting to the front of the house.

Linden Homes North sales director Steve Woomble said: “Security of our home and our possessions is a prime concern for many of us. By choosing a new home, buyers can have instant peace of mind that the issue of security has already been addressed.

“All our homes are built with security in mind, although the specification will differ according to the design of the house.”
