Written on: 24/04/2015 by avi12345 (1 review written)

Ettingshall - 4 bed lumly house. Sale team on site showed us the house and we very much liked the layout of the house. Went through credit check which came positive on move maker deal. For valuation waited waited n waited...n finally had a call after chasing it up myself many times. Told us the value a lot less then the current market value. Very poor service n you have to pay extra for flooring, fencing, stainless cooker etc..the quality of kitchen fitted to a very poor standard compare to the… Read Full Review

They are truly a dreadful company.
The buyers in Worcester are thinking of grouping together and contacting the media.

“Do not buy from Persimmon. ”

Written on: 19/04/2015 by uxDixon457 (1 review written)

I have recently just bought a persimmon with my partner, first time buyers was ment to be all exciting but not.. when we arranged to meet a sales advisor they gave us the keys to another house due to none like ours being built yet, we had a look around and it was lovely the sales women said ours would be bigger, upgraded kitchen, upgraded bathrooms etc etc, everything was all ready pre selected prior to our interest in the house but we were happy with the choices.. So we were super excited to… Read Full Review

Many on here wont believe the reviews about their customer service teams. But they are true.
We have been called liars to our faces, and are now taking action against the company.
All the residents in Worcester Persimmon Heights are considering joint action, the build quality is so very poor.
The show home is NOT what you get. You end up with utter tat.

“Persimmon delayed house by 6 mths from 1st estimate date”

Written on: 29/03/2015 by Coyneva212 (1 review written)

Persimmon housing are absolutely useless. When i went to consult with persimmon on August/Sep 2014 they promised me house will be build in Jan 2015 I was really excited and sign the contract. Once contract was signed they went quite, no letters of exact finish date nor any information on progress of house build. When i went to see Persimmon sales team they were very unhelpful and rude and reluctant to share information. Then i was told house build will be on Feb 2015, then April now June 2015… Read Full Review

“Shocking!”

Written on: 26/02/2015

If you are serious about purchasing a Persimmon Home I urge you not to! They are liars and unreliable. You will never hear from them again once your "house" has been "built". I have spoken to my neighbours and they say the exact same thing. I cannot believe they are allowed to build houses and god only knows how they are getting away with their so called "customer care". Do not have anything to do with this company!!… Read Full Review

“Poor Quality and Standards, Rushed Job!”

Written on: 23/02/2015 by ZaneSmith301 (1 review written)

Very disappointed by the lack of quality and workmanship of persimmon homes. Poor plumbing resulting in water leak, poorly levelled walls, cracks in external panelling to house, spreading damp issues. Everyday more problems are discovered. Customer services are very slow to address issues and it is extremely difficult to get hold of the right people. I would not recommend this builder to anyone due to their shoddy work. Shambles! They are unable to even realise the extent of the problems unless… Read Full Review

Levelled walls in the 'space4' timber framed houses is a big problem, as they effectively nail two pieces of wall together.
We were told yesterday here in Worcester that our so called home is one of only two actual brick skinned houses.
The rest are died concrete made to look like brick.
Oh well.
Very poor finish indeed.
Will.never buy Persimmon again.

“Worst experience from best experience”

Written on: 20/02/2015 by MarkusNoonan321 (1 review written)

Its about the new build properties in Garys, it was the best experience to start with when I bought and its worst now, as these people wont respond to anything. No security measures taken, not proper road marks, no street lights which led to three burglaries on one week. This is not just mine but almost all the people who bought. They dont even bother even to check what was wrong until 3 months of complaint and God know when it will be rectified… Read Full Review

“Avoid Persimmon Houses like the Plague”

Written on: 18/02/2015 by Birman_fan (1 review written)

We bought a Persimmon house several years ago and I can honestly say that there is nothing to recommend it. The layout design is poor, the build quality and finish is the worst I've ever seen. Every day I find something else wrong with the house. Even when we got them to correct problems, it ended up looking ten times worse. Avoid at all costs. Unfortunately this review only allows a one star as the lowest score, whereas Persimmon definitely warrant a MINUS FIVE. My son has just bought a… Read Full Review

“Persimmon Homes are a Nightmare”

Written on: 16/02/2015

The worst customer service I have ever experienced. I was lied to from the outset to get the sale and it went down hill from there. I was told I'd be moving in in July 2015 but didn't get to move in until one week before Christmas. During this time I was continuously lied to by front line staff and ignored by the Area Director who didn't return any of my calls. I am still awaiting a reply from my letter of complaint that I sent to the Divisional Exec in November 2014. I am not expecting a… Read Full Review

Mirrors my experience in Worcester, at Persimmon Heights.
Lies. The sales advisor basically called ME a liar to my face when I questioned why I had been told a service road had no vehicular access, only to find out different.
Liars.

I am buying a home on the daisy hill site in Morley and was supposed to be in for September 2014 it's now February 2015 and it's still a mud patch now there saying June it's a joke! I've had to reapply for the mortgage because it's been so long, it's been a nightmare and I haven't even moved in yet and if these reviews are anything to go buy there's more stress to come… Read Full Review

“Love our new Persimmon home, repeat customer!”

Written on: 03/02/2015 by Jone275 (1 review written)

So this is my second Persimmon home, bought one in 2005 and this one which completed in Dec 2014. Absolutely love it, the site staff have always been really helpful and friendly from reservation to completion. The location of the site is perfect for what we wanted, good local schools etc. The house itself has been done to a very good standard. People expect too much from new builds, there will be cracks here and there and some things wont be perfect on moving day but they will get sorted....we… Read Full Review

If you can wait!
I myself have bought new from a different builder before, and all I can say is Persimmon homes are poorly built, full of faults, and not worth the money.
The sales staff lie, and are just after their bonuses.

“it all falls down”

Written on: 03/02/2015 by richarda618 (1 review written)

Persimmon Heights in Worcester certainly doesnt reach any heights at all when it comes to standards. Timber framed nightmares, with poor internal finishes, sticking doors, sloping gardens and on one plot, collapsing external walls. Rubbish. Very poor builder… Read Full Review

“Don't Buy!”

Written on: 30/01/2015 by Brynsmum (1 review written)

We reserved a house on Persimmons site in Pembs at the beginning of Nov 2014. Shortly afterwards our solicitor noticed a condition of planning permission by the Council was that Japanese Knotweed should be removed from the site. She queried this and was told it had been cleared and on requesting proof was told their clients did not provide this. She replied that this was unacceptable and received the same reply. We told her that if they did not supply this proof we would withdraw our offer… Read Full Review

“House snagging list”

Written on: 18/01/2015

We bought our first new house from Persimmons Homes and we have had problems since day one. Mow we are into our first year and the e-mails I have sent to customer care to have them ignored and when I said " it leaves me no option to take this matter further I got a phone call that day" they arrange for someone to visit me this morning 16th Jan 2015 at 11:00am so I thought this is good then I received a text message from the person who was to visit me saying he can't make it because he is ill.

the build seems to be greatly rushed without proper completions. the walls in the bedroom are not levelled. the garden is slanting and not aligned. they were pressurising to transfer the completion money but not completed the house. only reason i am at peace is the customer service team is really helpful and chasing the different parties to help complete the repairs… Read Full Review

Just writing this as a warning to anyone in DUNDEE.....Firstly DO NOT BUY A HOUSE FROM THESE PEOPLE., 18 months in our home and it only gets worse. I do not think there is any aspect of this house you could not find a fault with. SHOCKING finishing throughout.Site agent compulsive liar, he was replaced before site completion before residents strung him up. DONT BELIEVE SALES PATTER, once you've singed your in a world of hurt. And don't use recommended solicitors or brokers. 1 star too… Read Full Review
