“Shoddy Workmanship And Non-Existant After Sales Care”

Written on: 21/12/2014 by ColemanBlevins (1 review written)

I am writing this review because I am at my wits end with the after sales care and customer service from Charles Church. We bought a 4 bedroom Charles Church town house in 2013. Upon visiting the house, which was a building site, in the build up to the end of financial year we thought we were on to a winner. 4 bedrooms, practically on the beach and with significant room for negotiation. It took a month from deciding to buy for us to be moved in. And I wonder if the word count here is long… Read Full Review

“Dishonest - awful customer service”

Written on: 19/12/2014 by sassy2014 (1 review written)

We placed an initial early bird reservation with Persimmon at a development in Coventry. We were told at the time that the development would have super fast broadband and plots would be released in December 14 for completion in March 15. With this information we went ahead and paid our £500 early bird reservation fee. In September we received a call saying that the plots had been released early and they would like us to discuss the option of part ex, which we did. At this meeting we were… Read Full Review

“Dreadful, greedy and unhelpful”

Written on: 12/12/2014 by Rossa171 (1 review written)

Purchased my first home through Persimmon. Right from day one they take money from you and don't fully explain why. They suggested going with one of their solicitors to which I politley declined. They also pushed me into using one of their mortgage brokers who was as helpful as a chocolate teapot. Persimmon are also quick to take cash off you for house furnishings- before the house even has a foundation. They are highly uncontactable, extremely unhelpful and I would never recommend them ever… Read Full Review

“Excellent customer care”

Written on: 10/12/2014 by Tiggitop (1 review written)

i have just read all the reviews on this site, and feel so sorry for everyone, however I bought a persimmons home in August 2014 in Pembrokeshire and although there have been some snagging problems I have been treated with respect, kindness and getting what ever needed doing as fast as possible. The communications between myself, customer care and the site manager has been fast and efficient, and they have gone out of there way to help with anything, especially as I am a woman on my own.

“After care service”

Written on: 06/12/2014 by 384Freeman (1 review written)

My daughter and her husband bought their Persimmon home 3 years ago. Whilst they are happy with the house, the after care service is none existant. They have had a flow of water from the top gutter since the property was built and no one has even bothered to reply to their e mails to come and have a look. They have now, at their own expense had to have this fixed and it turns out part of the roof didn't even have guttering as it was missed off!! NHBC have been informed but until the builder has… Read Full Review

“continuos problems”

Written on: 04/12/2014 by KrisMachala (1 review written)

we purchased so called quality house from in Bagshot in January 2013', since then we had various problems with window locks, skirting, radiator leaks, and boiler. Recent answer received from them was that nothing is under warranty as completion date was over a year ago. Don't buy from them as they don't care once you paid the money. Customer service is non existent, I wanted to purchase more houses for rental, but will never buy from them again… Read Full Review

“Disgusting customer care ! Appalling quality home ! ”

Written on: 17/11/2014 by Disappointed234 (1 review written)

As a first time buyer I was lured into this shamble of a company. The customer service was great until they received my money then it all went down hill. The standard of my new built house was disgraceful. The builders was so rude. I even went to the trouble to write a letter to the manager to which their response was basically that they do not care and there was nothing I could do about it! I lost so much money and had to take time off work for the house To be sorted when their builders were… Read Full Review

“Customer Care - They don't care.”

Written on: 15/11/2014

If you're buying in the Nottinghamshire area find out who your point of contact will be post sale. If the answer is Lorraine Pole - wouldn't bother as if you do encounter any issues they will not be sorted. The overall build quality and the house have been excellent but there were some issues, naturally with a new home that could have been easily sorted if it wasn't for the incompetence of Customer Care and Lorraine Pole. We ended up finding names on the internet and emailing them using the… Read Full Review

“Don't touch them with a barge pole”

Written on: 11/11/2014 by AdonisMassey318 (1 review written)

They are awful. We were going to buy a house from them and they pulled it 2 days before exchange. They said we hadn;t completed in the agreed timescale even though they had never given us a timescale. Someone we knew went looking and was shown the house we were going to buy and was told that the sale had been withdrawn due to me not getting a visa (i was born in the uk). When i phoned to confornt them about it and the fact they didn;t want to refund the money we had paid for fitting they… Read Full Review

“ Persimmon New Build House, Well Below Standard!!!!”

Written on: 24/10/2014 by Downey279 (1 review written)

Myself and Partner moved into our new build 3 storey town house in Ingelby Barwick, Stockton-on-Tees December 2013. Since we have moved into the property there has been on-going issues with the paintwork and it is still nearly a year on well below what i would expect for a new build housing provider to do. I had a meeting with the site manager and his management a few months back and was informed that all we discussed would be dealt with in a prompt manner and i would receive a letter… Read Full Review

“Worst building company ever, poor quality and service”

Written on: 22/10/2014 by MorganMooney (1 review written)

I purchase a persimmon home just over 10 years ago which at the time was 2 years old and had 2 previous owners. The 3 bed semi detached house was sold with garage and communal drive with allocate parking outside the garage as requested by the council when persimmon asked for planning on the site. I share a double garage with my neighbour mine being closest to my property. The space outside my property has always been used as our parking space with no issues until new neighbours moved in… Read Full Review

“Dont buy ”

Written on: 05/10/2014 by JairCopeland (1 review written)

We reserved a charles church/persimmon home in North East. No contact details provided or a name given to allow us speak with anyone in head office. All they were interested in was exchange of contracts and deposit As quick as possible. Overpriced homes built on top of each other. Thankfully we were wise enough to realise within a month that if the company do not have the decency to reply to written queries or concerns about the house they are building for a customer - no thanks. We withdrew… Read Full Review

“Dream home is a nightmare.”

Written on: 04/10/2014 by Coby473 (1 review written)

We moved into our Persimmon building over 4 months ago. We can't call it home yet and now doubt it will ever feel like it. We saved hard to put down a deposit on our first home. We wish we'd just blown the money on lottery tickets. Where to start with our snagging list, it was pages long and we are still waiting for it to be completed. They were not what if called snags either, missing kitchen cabinets, integrated appliances not fitted, just left in the garage, the ensuiteshower was unusable as… Read Full Review

“Prestige homes? - think again!”

Written on: 01/10/2014 by fabdullah (1 review written)

Bought our Charles Church home in May 2014 at Belsdyke development (Larbert) and had the usual snagging list. The onsite sales staff, Mrs M and site manager, Mr M, were lovely and go out of their way to please us. Mid June, the nightmare started. We had major issues with flooding in our back garden and we were told, at about the same time that our neighbours sewer is blocked and Charles Church had to dig up our garden to unblock it. On the former, their contractors ACS noticed that we did not… Read Full Review

“Dont be fooled by the showhouse”

Written on: 29/09/2014 by ElenaErickson397 (1 review written)

Having spoken to someone yesterday re Persimmon Homes, out of curiosity I thought I would take a look at the reviews. From what I have read nothing seems to have changed. We have had the misfortune of living in a Persimmon house for approx.25/26 years (I try not to think about it)Owing to various reasons we have been unable to re-locate. Some of the 'workmanship'-( I use the term loosely) can still be seen i.e. air bricks at ground level, I presume we might have our own underground reservoir by… Read Full Review
