“Never buy a barrats home.”

Written on: 07/01/2013

I am appalled disgusted and literally on the verge of a breakdown because of this awful, lieing manipulating company. We moved in just over a year ago after a very nice lady sold us the property. Oh she was all smiles and everything was written down price wise, only for the prices to soon change,items we asked for weren't given. We moved in never the less, after that the problems just came and came, after a week of being in the full bedroom wall was covered in mould, it was reported and… Read Full Review

“If Only I Could put no stars!”

Written on: 07/01/2013

Myself and my partner went to buy our first ever house, thought best thing to do would go with a large UK known company such as Barrats. They turned out to be lying manipulative time wasting cretins. When we first went to go and see the property the team were amazing, we left, explaining we had some thinking to do as this is easily one of the biggest decisions of our lives. We go back, and look at the house again and decide, yep, its the one for us, lets get it. So my partner and I go back… Read Full Review

“Barrats A Home Within A Hamsters Home Within a Shoe Box”

Written on: 09/12/2012 by barratsarecack (1 review written)

what can i say?? no more than stay away from the pitfalls of buying a barrats home - i speak from experience so trust me on this one. the properties they sell are basically overpriced shoe boxes - and with cold bedrooms - mine is like a freezer i sh*t you not!! not insulated against noise, poor workmanship finish, lies about service charge, lies about the future development of the neighbourhood (which they make up), lies about the development of the site, leave plots of land uncut when they… Read Full Review

“Part Exchange Lies”

Written on: 30/11/2012

I hope this helps someone to not make the mistake we did We looked reserved a property and Barratt agreed to p/ex our property NOTE all paperwork stated sold as seen. Estates Agents valued our p/ex (£15000 below market rate as Barratt asked for a Fire Sale price, we have spoken to the agents you see) and wanted to market it straight way (we held them back ). We engaged a Solicitor recommended by Barratt,they completed all the contract paperwork before we had a mortgage or even a valuation of… Read Full Review

“Fusion, Wolverhampton”

Written on: 24/11/2012

Purchased a 1 bed flat just over two years ago! After moving in I found a large number of the apartments had been sold to the social housing (council). In fact it's more than half! Non of these tenants nor the council contribute to the sevice charge thus I pay double what I should be paying! There is drug taking and anti social behaviour throughout the complex! I was totally miss lead and have recently found out the car park I use is'nt for the development I live in but for the new development… Read Full Review

It's a horrible place - so cold and the corridor outside constantly smells of various substances shall we say! Was told I had a parking space but I don't and with the introduction of the double yellows under the archway now means there is no where to park! Would not recommend!

I was also told I had a parking space. I was even given the code for the car park at the back. However, once all the spaces were lines and labelled it became obvious I didn’t. When I questioned it with the, supposed, managing director he said I was never told I had a parking space despite him never being involved in my purchase at any point. Have you written to them? I am also sick of some of the people that live there and the people they attract to the development.

It does seem to be getting worse - screaming and arguments in the car park and outside! I was also given the code for the car park but now have to pay the pub next door just so I can park my car safely and legally! Cannot wait to leave to be honest - I swear the place is falling apart - the windows leak and the cracks appearing are terrible. I don't trust the balcony at all so tend not to use it.

“Never buy a home from barRATS”

Written on: 18/11/2012

Moved into a flat over a year ago. A lot of work needed doing, and still needs doing. Sme of the work has had to be done again and again and again. This is not good enough. Seeks on windows are all cracked..causing mould. Seals all around doors are cracked. Mould in bedroom living room bathroom and kitchen!!! Damp under Lino causing bubbling. Crack on the front of the balcony...very dangerous..will not open double doors because of this. The sales reps are all nice when trying to sell you a… Read Full Review

“Disabilities are Ignored!”

Written on: 11/10/2012 by LadyTara (1 review written)

We moved into a new Barratts home(as secure tenants) in London in October 2011. Since that date the residents have had an ongoing battle trying to ask Barratts to show reason an apply to the Local Authority to increase the disabled parking facilities. At each turn they have declined our request. They allow able bodied contractors to park all over the estate yet, watch as we struggle daily. One year on and I finally give up. I'm moving out! Had I have known just how terrible this place is… Read Full Review

“I bought a flat in 1981. It has no sound proofing. So...”

Written on: 20/09/2012

I bought a flat in 1981. It has no sound proofing. So when people have sex they have to put on loud music what sort of a quality of life is this? Every sound from neighbours is suffered. I believe that I was overcharged for this substandard flat. I believe that I will never get a decent price for this garbage when I try to sell it. It is a disgrace that economic housing is any old rubbish. Rightly disgruntled… Read Full Review

“Love the house, shame about the customer service”

Written on: 28/08/2012 by redbutterfliz (1 review written)

We reserved the lot over a year ago and moved in 8 months ago. We were told when we put the money down that there was an issue with the land at the back of the garden as there was a dispute but assured us that it would be sorted in 6 weeks time. It has now been a year and my fence is in the wrong place, apparently the land is ours but they need a signature sending to them before they can move the fence back. They keep giving me excuses and its wearing pretty thin. We had a problem with the… Read Full Review

“When is an offer not an offer? - When it's part exchange”

Written on: 17/08/2012

Look closely at the terms and conditions and ignore anything said under the part exchange section of their website. We were told by the sales person that they were giving us a verbal offer of £***** and we handed over a cheque for £500 deposit to "reserve" our property, so according to their website we were "safe and secure in the knowledge that both our sale and purchase are secure! They sent two valuers to come and value our property and then two days later said they were refusing the… Read Full Review

“Barratt Homes Buyer Beware”

Written on: 09/05/2012

The one star rating above is overly generous. We purchased our Barratt Home almost three years ago and it has been a mightmare from start to finish. The quality of workmanship fall's someway below any acceptable standard. The customer service is terrible, not one of the many issue that we have highlighted was resolved first time, many are still unresolved after three years… Read Full Review

I bought my 3 bed semi as an investment property but since i got my keys had several issues some with respect to the site manager John resolved in reasonable time. I found my self to be very disappointed with the fact i went to them recently with a problem with my patio doors to the rear which has dropped and therefore would not shut. when I had gone to see them i was told they will not be doing anything as it was over 2yrs and their guarantee had expired. Double glazing & frames should be… Read Full Review

Hello We have enjoyed an excellent relationship with barratts from start to finish. Elaine sales girl was helpfull and kept us fully informed from minute we looked at house to deposit to moving in. The site manager calls by every few days since moving in just to let us no hes around if we need him. the site seems to be kept very tidy, and work vechicles are few and far around lived in houses. The mornings are quiet untill atleast 8.30 with the workmen. A couple of bricks became detached… Read Full Review

Hi! I'm interested in a property here. Can you give me any advice at all? Did you part x or first time buyer etc? Was it straight forward? I don't normally read reviews but yours is the only positive so far!
Thanks
