Mission & Values
Buying a new build home is high value, complex and risky. Things can and do go wrong, with potentially serious consequences. Many buyers find themselves subject to exploitative and unfair arrangements about which they were given no warning before they committed, or struggle to get serious design and construction problems put right after they move in.
New Build Guru's mission is to empower new build homeowners to achieve better outcomes on these and other issues, in a uniquely-effective and affordable way.
Risk management during the buying process
Our free guidance notes published on our website help buyers avoid common risks and pitfalls during the sales process and lay the foundations for a successful and enjoyable transaction and ownership experience. We also offer access to independent conveyancing solicitors who will advise you on key risks and hidden clauses. We bring together all the support, information and know-how you need as a prospective buyer of a new build home, in one place.
Harnessing the power of the collective
After you move in, we can help you achieve unprecedented outcomes on common-interest issues including construction defects and exploitative or unfair arrangements, by harnessing the power of the collective. We connect you with other Members on common-interest issues as this radically improves affordability and cost-effectiveness of taking appropriate action.
The cooperative values and principles that underpin everything we and our Members do help foster an ethical and inclusive approach that breeds trust and confidence between Members, essential conditions for effective collaborative working and for achieving the best outcomes.
Together, we can do more than you imagined possible.
New Build Guru is a co-operative enterprise. In common with co-operatives throughout the world, we share a set of values that give co-operatives their distinctive character.
Co-operatives are based on the values of self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity and solidarity. Co-operative members believe in the ethical values of honesty, openness, social responsibility and caring for others.
The co-operative principles below are the internationally-recognised guidelines by which all co-operatives put their values into practice.
