“Eco - Drains not connected to a water outlet”

Written on: 04/09/2015 by McGregor417 (1 review written)

We have recently moved into a new property built by Bellway in Slough , have been dealing with snags ever since we have moved into the property in the beginning of the year. Recently due to heavy rains we have found that the eco drain put outside the patio has no connection made to the drains and as a result the water was seeping back in to the grounds making a wet patch in the garden. What kind of building regulations apply to these ? They have used an Eco - Drain but not connected to the… Read Full Review

“Moderno, Brighton (30 July 2015)”

Written on: 30/07/2015 by 262Webster (1 review written)

Bellway have left us with no choice but to share our story with the hope that other potential house buyers will read our fact based account and walk in to any potential purchase with their eyes wide open. The sales people assured us that the 4 bed semi that we were buying in Brighton (Moderno) would be checked in detail from top to bottom before we moved in and any snags logged and repaired. We have now lived here for over 8 weeks and very few of our snags (over 70 in total and rising) have… Read Full Review

Thank you for this review. Me and my partner were looking at the Dunfermline site and all houses are sold. We had a look at the Cowdenbeath area and we seen the new council housing! This has put us off.

“Could not be more happy!”

Written on: 28/06/2015 by alexjlax (1 review written)

Like every new build there tends to be a 'snag' list which can be as long as your arm. We spoke to the foreman everytime one cropped up, which he resolved within a week. I hope nothing does go wrong with our property but if it does I feel confident that it will be dealt with prompty. We held off giving Bellway their survey back until we could comment truthfully which could have been a factor but we love our new home in Skelton… Read Full Review

“Extremely disappointing ”

Written on: 29/05/2015 by 80Clancy (1 review written)

New occupant of Bellway Kings Reach. This is my first ever property and the worst ever experience. It's been 4-5 months since I have been an occupant and have multiple challenges because of Bellways negligence and reluctance to help their customers. We were forced to take the occupancy in phase 1 even without completing the basics amenities and making this place habitable for anyone of us. Post occupancy when we tried raising concerns we were put down by saying that we are occupants now and… Read Full Review

They are a dangerous negligent company with no respect for its employees and it obviously has no respect for the people who are buying their houses from Bellway they are a danger to society and I will not let them disrespect another tradesmen the way they have me and I cannot stand by and watch another been seriously injured by this company and I have nightmares about the site I worked on and the families living in those houses that are structurally unsafe for anyone too be living inside

“Appalling after-sales care yet again..... Empty promises!”

Written on: 10/05/2015 by RickArthur (1 review written)

We bought our 4 bed detached Bellway home a year ago (April 2014). We had many snagging issues in the first 3 months or so, needless to say, these issues took approx 6-9 months to remedy. Over the last 4 months, we have had a few more issues arise. The garden doesn't drain very well leaving it boggy and looking a mess, making it unusable through winter and early spring. The vinyl floor laid in the kitchen-diner has many splits/holes in it due to debris left underneath during fitting and lastly… Read Full Review

Weareangry's Comment

Written on: 14/07/2015

Bought a Bellway house in Somerset. Been here 5 months. Lorries parked on pavement directly outside our house, blocking the path to our front door and our driveway. Unloading as early as 6:50am. Scaffolder told me to "****" off'. Workmen coming into our garden to access back of other properties (we have now padlocked gate). Lumps of render and tarmac, bits of woods, cigarette butts etc dumped on our property, front and back. Large pieces of roofing felt blowing about in the wind plus other assortment of building debris, including insulation. Blocked drains. No bath or shower for the first few days we moved in. Radio up until 9pm at night. No break at all one weekend from noise because various workmen there throughout weekend as well as during the week. Discourtesy and disrespect. The sign "this house is now occupied, please be courteous" is a joke as it is ignored by all workmen and delivery people.

“Hellway homes!”

Written on: 15/04/2015 by tonyjms2005 (1 review written)

I bought I new flat from Bellway homes around 5 years ago, I decided to go new because I thought that new means hassle free, boy was I wrong. First the roof area of our flat was not insulated (I noticed this when I lowered a ceiling mounted extractor fan when doing some decorating and of course the fact that it was so cold!). I contacted customer care where they try their standard approach of trying to fob the customer off! My father is a builder so no chance there Bellway! I then managed to… Read Full Review

“Waste of time and money”

Written on: 13/04/2015 by zolty (1 review written)

Basically they are promising a lot and not doing enough when something goes wrong, multiple problems: first sewer pipe not connected to drain, causing water overflow in the shower when toilet was flushed, they had to dig up the front garden, left it in mess for couple of weeks without lawn, then when they finished they had to resurface it and lay the lawn again which of course wasn't straight forward, had already replaced all of the kitchen units frond doors as they were de-laminating, mould in… Read Full Review

Sadbellwayhomeowner's Comment

Written on: 16/07/2015

Obviously written by a Bellway employee!! The company is characterised by ignorance, deceit and a money-making uncaring ethos. A terrible company that creates 'jerry-built' properties. Please stay clear if you are contemplating buying from this most awful of builders. Ley Hill in Birmingham is like a 'shanty' town- unkempt, peopled by home-owners who do not care for their scruffy weed-filled gardens and their already dishevelled looking homes. Properties do not have adequate sound-proofing, therefore everything can be heard - toilets flushing, footsteps, coughing. Inept company that should not be allowed to carry on exploiting unknowing purchasers.

“There are satisfied purchasers. ”

Written on: 10/03/2015 by Hays1948 (1 review written)

All to often, those who have had negative experiences are the first to post negative reviews; those who have had positive do not feel the need to comment. I feel that the overall feedback score is not indicative of Bellway customers. It's coming up to 12 months since I bought my property in Kidderminster and despite a few snags, which were all resolved promptly, I have been happy. I just stress to cautious purchasers not to place too much significance on bad reviews… Read Full Review

“Dangerous”

Written on: 07/03/2015 by Mackers1967 (1 review written)

If you have a Bellway home please get your plumbing and electrics checked. We had a leak from our dishwasher in our integral kitchen. The waste pipe was tracked through the wall and then incorrectly attached using gaffer tape and as it was inaccessible the kitchen has had to be ripped out to have the pipe put where it should be and to rectify the damage caused. When the dishwasher was moved it was found by our Electrician to be plugged in to a single socket which was hanging off the wall and… Read Full Review
