  • Peace of mind

  • No hidden repair costs

  • More time to enjoy your life

  • Value for money

  • Energy efficiency

  • Lower fuel bills

  • A blank canvas to add your own touch to


An Energy Efficient Home


Modern building techniques and materials make our homes considerably more energy efficient than older properties. You’ll enjoy better value for money, with improved comfort and lower energy bills, whilst the latest innovations and superior finishing make for easier maintenance and a more luxurious lifestyle.

Every Tulloch Home comes with an Energy Performance Certificate to show you exactly how energy efficient your home is. Each Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) contains:

  • Information on your home’s energy use and typical energy costs.

  • A recommendation report with suggestions to reduce energy use and save money.

  • Details of the person who carried out the EPC assessment.

  • Who to contact if you want to make a complaint.

EPCs carry ratings that compare the current energy efficiency and estimated costs of energy use with potential figures that your home could achieve. The rating measures the energy efficiency of your home using a grade from ‘A’ to ‘G’. An ‘A’ rating is the most efficient, while ‘G’ is the least efficient. The average efficiency grade to date is ‘D’. All homes are measured using the same calculations, so you can compare the energy efficiency of different properties.


Peace Of Mind With 10 Year NHBC National Guarantee Scheme

When do I actually own my new home?

You will receive the keys to your new Tulloch Home on legal completion. Legal completion is the actual moment when you become the legal owner of your new home.

At this stage your mortgage advance is transferred to Tulloch Homes’ solicitors and your solicitor will receive the title deeds to your new property, which are then forwarded to the lender with whom you have your mortgage. Completion date will be agreed with your sales consultant prior to this date.

When should I insure my new home?

Your new home is insured by Tulloch Homes until the moment of legal completion. From then on you are responsible for the insurance of both the building and its contents. Your mortgage lender will insist on building insurance. It is your choice whether to insure your contents or not. Flats may be insured via a common buildings insurance policy organised by the factor. Ask your sales consultant for further information.
