“Bellway Leasehold Avoid!!”

Written on: 17/02/2017 by 49Hughes (1 review written)

Do not buy a Bellway leasehold house...they will sell your freehold on to a third party investor which could cost you well over 10k to buy the freehold and around 3k for permission to build an extension! If you dont buy the freehold you are merely a tennant and at the end of your lease you do not have the right to live in your house...even if you have paid your mortgage off!! These investors may also charge extortionate fees for changing bathrooms and kitchems etc! Ignore any quotes you are… Read Full Review

If its freehold that element is ok...just double check it is definitely freehold not the dreaded leasehold. Unfortunately we had a few build issues but this was a while ago...hopefully they have upped their game. we had to have the drainage re laid (garden dug up) and garage lintel replaced (out of tolerance) and stairs repaired a few times due to excessive creaking. Also lots of cosmetic snags and plumbing issues in bathroom. Go through the property room by room before you complete. Good luck!

Hey thanks for your message.

“Don't buy a Bellway home in Sudbury”

Written on: 11/02/2017 by JanessaShort460 (1 review written)

Unfortunately iv worked on this site and it's an eye opener. The houses are just thrown together, cheap everything. I'd be very surprised if these so called buildings are still standing in twenty years time. Buying one of these would be like buying a time bomb. Put these people out of business by not parting with your well earned cash… Read Full Review

“LEASEHOLD”

Written on: 02/02/2017 by Eileen184 (1 review written)

Leasehold Scandal !! Do you live in a leasehold house? If so this national problem will effect you also. Many people are totally unaware of this issue which is set to be bigger than the PPI Scandal. Many leases have a doubling clause so deeply embedded in the lease that no one has picked up on it (until now). This is making houses unsellable Developers have sold the freeholds onto 3rd parties behind homeowners back which have massive implications for each and every one of us. Cost of purchasing… Read Full Review

I'm the tenant from plot 54 - Waterhouse Mill, Bollington. I moved in to my new house in the end of October 2015. Today is Thursday 19th January 2017 and still pending snagging (very few).

“Dreadful Quality Builders ”

Written on: 10/01/2017 by mrw5646 (1 review written)

We bought a luxury flat. The fixtures plumbing etc are of very poor quality . Their plumbing contractors bodged everything. Some fittings held together with Gaffa Tape. 4 flats have all had same problems leaking cisterns faulty pressure tanks. No access to cisterns we had to have holes knocked in the bathroom wall to replace cistern etc. It has cost us over £1000 in repairs so far. Bellway arnt interested. The parts you cant see are of the cheapest quality many parts from bankrupt suppliers… Read Full Review

“Security Issues with Windows”

Written on: 23/12/2016 by RayJono (3 reviews written)

Following a recent burglary to a neighbours property I contacted Bellway to point out that the windows installed were poor in respect of security and that the window of the attacked home was forced open in seconds (cctv from a neighbours home highlighted this). As a result myself and a number of neighbours are installing very secure window jammers which lock and prevent the same thing happening. The £100 expense is irrelevant I wanted to highlight the issue so that future builds could possibly… Read Full Review

I don't usually write reviews but after reading some on here I was worried about my house purchase and hoping to put some peoples minds at ease. Purchased a house in the Eastfields estate and on have been very pleased with the house. It is a great size for the money and feels like a home already after only a couple of months. Our site manager is excellent in dealing with any issues we have had and the lady in the sales room was always very helpful. The house had some snagging which is… Read Full Review

Hello, I'm thinking about buying one of their houses and I would appreciate if you can explain what would be a good approach to avoid these problems you have. The house is about to be finished in a few months.
Many thanks in advance.

“As bad as it gets”

Written on: 22/11/2016

I have never seen such a poor quality of construction. Sewage pipes are not inclined properly, fire safety is below zero (one of the houses in our development had experienced this problem first hand), and customer support is non-existent. They don't take any responsibilities for what happened and will continue building all over the country. There is nothing good I can say about my experience with the company, it is shocking that they are allowed to do business that way… Read Full Review

“Bellway Homes - Criminal Service”

Written on: 21/10/2016 by HayleyHigson (1 review written)

After deciding to buy a new build we found a beautiful new site in Blandford, Dorset...it seemed perfect! The initial sales consultation was ok, however we were still keen as we had our heart set on living there. Once we had said yes to a property that's when the problems started. We were railroaded into the exchange and completion on the basis we would lose the property as they had so much interest, which we now know is a lie as they can't sell half the properties. ....at times asking us to… Read Full Review

“Very good experience”

Written on: 18/10/2016 by 15knights (1 review written)

While purchasing a bellway home at Wheatley fields, ruddington, Nottingham I did some research and read review pages such as this to find out more, therefore after completing in July this year I thought it only fair to share our experience. After hearing and reading so many horror stories about new build properties we were getting very anxious as the completion crept upon us having many sleepless nights over snagging before we had even looked inside the property. With time against us we did… Read Full Review

“What they DON'T tell you!”

Written on: 04/10/2016 by HH1970 (1 review written)

Having spent £300k on a home we foolishly expected we'd be delighted with our purchase! There have been many disappointments, lots of waiting for action, many hours at home spent waiting for contractors to attend and after 18 months still unresolved issues including a garden that's probably better used for mud wrestling competitions! However the latest upset has seen 2 old aged pensioners and a child with no hot water or heating! Despite being told that everything was covered for 2 years we… Read Full Review

“My biggest regret is buying a Bellway home”

Written on: 06/09/2016 by Irelandv179 (1 review written)

We've lived in our new Bellway home for just over a year. It has been a hassle for the whole of that time. House was finished to a very poor standard, snagging has taken forever to do - not to a great standard may I add. We actually cannot wait to sell! If you are buying a Bellway home, on the day of completion refuse to sign any paperwork connected to the overall finish of the house etc. Spend a week doing all your snagging and create a comprehensive list. Until all snagging is finished only… Read Full Review
