Written on: 28/04/2016 by Honeywell (1 review written)

We paid over £300.000 for a house full of snagging & defects. Ceilings needed pulled down & resilient bars installed, constant leaks from bathrooms, ceilings bursting. Boiler constantly breaking down & needed replaced after 7 years at a cost of £2000 to us, they purchased boilers which were discontinued by the manufacturers at a low price & kept installing them into new build house 2 years later! Garden a swamp as no drainage installed 3meters from the house as per NHBC guideline. I could go… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/04/2016 by DamarionBoyd1950 (1 review written)

We completed our purchase of a Persimmon home a month ago. We went into the transaction fairly confident that their might be a few challenges however we did not realise that once we'd completed the promises made about work to be completed, missing items to be sorted and general customer care would be largely ignored. So far Persimmon have failed as follows: Pre-sales incentives not completed Issues identified at pre-completion inspection not fully addressed No promised courtesy call after… Read Full Review

“Help to buy pffft!”

Written on: 25/04/2016 by Crowleycq69 (1 review written)

After reading reviews I thought I would judge for myself. I haven't even bought a house with them and they have been awful. I can't get or hold contact with them. When eventually we made our way down to the show home to view the home they said was there they said you need to travel 60miles to see it. My wife and I reluctantly went all this way to have no one there. they didn't even answer my calls or emails back. Time wasting, unprofessional developers who are all talk… Read Full Review

“Do not buy from Persimmon”

Written on: 08/04/2016 by Casey85 (1 review written)

Where to start...we bought a 4 bed town house in Ashington in 2013. My biggest regret is ever considering Persimmon! Our move in date was moved back 3 times. Upon moving in there was a catalogue of problems developing. Initially the foreman was helpful but there were several changes of foreman which was frustrating. We had no working oven when we moved in (7 December 2013) and this was not resolved for several weeks. Then we noticed a LOT of shabby workmanship in the first few weeks. My… Read Full Review

“Persimmons are simply terrible”

Written on: 29/03/2016

- Complete lack of communication from start to finish - Constantly changing move in dates (2 month delays within less than a week) - Misleading information about incentives/Help to Buy - Appalling complaint handling and general customer service - Poor response times Overall absolutely terrible. Avoid at all costs. Luckily my partner and I managed to get our reservation fee back, don't make the same mistakes we did. Do not reserve with Persimmon Homes… Read Full Review

“Persimmon - rip off central”

Written on: 16/03/2016 by sjw2511 (1 review written)

Terrible experience reserving a property through Persimmon. Started out right enough until the lady in the showroom asked us to reserve before we could see any finishing touches as they had ran out of brochures. It wasn't until later we got to see a finishing touches brochure and my word the prices are extraordinary. As part of negotiations they offered 5k towards fixtures and fittings but you could only arrange these items through them and their brochure. Think you're getting 5k of… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/03/2016 by June442 (1 review written)

Moved in to our home 19/12/2014. We were given a so called house demo 'took 20 minutes. The house was unfinished and this was at 4pm on 18/12/2014.we made it very clear that we wouldn't accept the condition. Front door was still wet and £5000.00 of flooring was so badly laid it was instanly soul destroying. Rooms with joins in the carpet visible. Floor tiles left jagged at edges because they'd fallen out with the mastic company. Carpet wrong colour. NO appliances were plumbed in. Imagine how… Read Full Review

“Charles Church quality.....don't make me laugh....!”

Written on: 04/03/2016

I could mention the many things that are not of the standard expected but just wanted to advise to stay clear of Persimmon (Charles Church part of Persimmon). Some of our slate roof tiles have now come off for the third time in the two years that we have been on the estate. There are another 9 houses afflicted after the latest windy weather. I could go on about only 75% of the street lighting on after site completed 18 months ago. Tried contacting MD southern region of Persimmon by email on 6… Read Full Review

“Britain's most useless housebuilder”

Written on: 21/02/2016 by ChazEvans156 (1 review written)

False sales information. No pre completion inspection offered. Less than 2 working days notice given before completion. 146 faults found on moving in. New kitchen and utility installed as the original was so bad. Front and back doors wouldn't close or lock properly. Lack of interest from directors and site staff in relation to faults. Site is an absolute disgrace with roads and paths in a dangerous condition. I loathe this company who lost any interest and showed no respect or courtesy once… Read Full Review

Im so glad i am reading all these reviews, I was going to put a reserve on a plot on an estate being built near my mum in Scotland they are very vague regarding when houses will be completed, they can't tell me if the price will shoot up or stay at the online price thats advertised and it made me a little wary Im so glad I've not reserved that plot and so far they haven't taken the reserve fee for early bird out my bank as i am now calling them this second to cancel it!

Written on: 19/02/2016 by dmboddison (1 review written)

From the day we viewed we fell in love with it... our Sales Advisor was fantastic and looked after our every need. Top quality and friendly staff are always eager to please as existing customers. I highly rate Persimmons as one of the best in the industry, level of workmanship is second to none compared to others I have heard about from friends and family. Im quite fussy about everything being perfect and have had the after care team out on numerous occasions as the house has set and… Read Full Review

“Garage soaking wet! ”

Written on: 19/02/2016 by Emeryfd333 (1 review written)

We have brought a property in Newport looked good at first but concerns are arriving already and only moved in November! All our door had to be replaced as all handles fell of within a week! Wrong cooker! One coat of paint so you can see all brush marks, and the extra shower we had put in is falling of the wall! My one major concern is the garage! Soaking wet walls and floor to the point it's unusable as their mould everywhere! I have just been told that a garage will never be dry! However I'm… Read Full Review

“useless”

Written on: 19/02/2016 by KarenSilva246 (1 review written)

I come from a customer service/ sales background, and I have never seen such shoddy workmanship or rubbish service in my life. I had over 70 items on my snagging list without even trying. Things like outer bricks being stuck in with expanding foam no ceils under the windows. My neighbours garden is 16" higher than mine and all I have holding back all that soil is two high concrete gravel boards. Held in with wooden posts, and when it rains the water from his garden runs onto mine.Let alone… Read Full Review

Carreg Erw (Bridgend, South Wales) Trem Gwlad Yr Haf Do NOT buy. Local searches have revealed a public footpath going through the rear of the gardens... Persimmon have not obtained an order for the permanent diversion for this path, as such the public have right of way in your garden!!!!! (if your a resident of course) and ultimately the value of your property is not what you would expect. … Read Full Review
