“Suprisingly good given the reviews”

Written on: 24/11/2016 by Jimbo1483 (1 review written)

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

“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

“Post warranty issues”

Written on: 28/08/2016 by zvStephenson77 (1 review written)

Our house is approaching 3 years old and it appears to me that Bellway apply the minimum quality to their properties that they pass the warranty period and then fall apart . In the past three month we have the hot water system repaired £200, solar panel leaking and needed to be switched off- £100- boiler repaired £250 -and today the pipe under the sink burst so we have had the emergency plumber out. All tradesmen have blamed the poor workmenship of Bellway. The pipe today was incorrectly… Read Full Review

“Appauling”

Written on: 23/08/2016 by 1987Guthrie (1 review written)

Think very carefully before you part with your hard earn money to Bellway homes. 16 months on and we still have issues. No insulation, kitchen granite had to be replaced. Garden floods. Taps leak. Our woodwork has been painted 4 times and now looks worse. Scratched Windows. Dreadful customer service. The list goes on and on. I have nothing good to say about the property or the developer. Avoid avoid avoid… Read Full Review

“Rip off!!”

Written on: 18/08/2016 by ypWare411 (1 review written)

Bought my Bellway Homes apartment 9yrs ago in September. Whilst undertaking major redecoration works for the first time since purchase it has only now become apparent just how slap dash the construction work is! Finding gaps the width of pound coins which had been covered up with decorators chalk and mastic etc. Spent ages trying to scrub paint off the door hinges. Door handle fixtures look like they've been put on by a five year old with a screwdriver and any loose screws found on the floor. I… Read Full Review

“AVOID BELLWAY AT ALL COSTS”

Written on: 08/08/2016

I wouldn't recommend Bellway to anybody. The homes are overpriced, don't come with any additional features like most building companies provide, and their customer service is appalling. Pushy sales teams talk you into anything they can by giving false promises - we were promised so much at first and they went back on their word the very next day when it came to reserving, they rush you to exchange contracts and treat you like dirt. They hold back on information and acted very threatening when… Read Full Review

“Excellent company ”

Written on: 05/08/2016

We moved into our Bellway home and have absolutely nothing to complain about. The site manager and sales adviser have bent over backwards to ensure we are happy in our new home. We aren't first time buyers, in fact we were in our last home for 33 years and I'm the fussiest person around and hard to please but everything we have asked for has been done to the highest standard. The flooring, tiling and lightning is of the highest standard and above our expectations. If we've found a problem (and… Read Full Review

“DON'T BUY A BELLWAY HOME ”

Written on: 02/08/2016 by Beck200 (1 review written)

PLEASE READ ANY PAPERWORK YOU SIGN WITH BELLWAY HOMES VERY CAREFULLY. THE SALES ADVISORS CAN MISLEAD YOU INTO SIGNING DOCUMENTS WITHOUT CLEARLY EXPLAINING THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS. THE FITXURES AND FITTINGS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE. PLEASE INSPECT THE NEWBUILD VERY CAREFULLY AS THERE ARE OFTEN PROBLEMS WITH THE NEWBUILD WHICH YOU AS THE NEW HOMEOWNER WILL NEED TO IDENTIFY. THE COMPLAINTS PROCEDURE IS JUST APPALLING AND YOU WILL HAVE LITTLE SUCCESS WITH THE GROUP CUSTOMER CARE MANAGER. I HAVE… Read Full Review

“I owned a flat on Bath Road Slough. There were major...”

Written on: 28/07/2016 by SueSlough (1 review written)

I owned a flat on Bath Road Slough. There were major leaks, boilers broke, no security in place. Ground rent and maintenance charges rose while service was non existent. Lots of break ins and criminal damages, property decayed without repair. We lost a lot of money on our home when we were forced to sell, when we couldn't keep up with mounting costs. I am convinced the entire project was a sham. There W's a managing agent, called Regus, who were completely impersonal and unhelpful. I… Read Full Review

“Lacking Human Decency! Not just customer service!”

Written on: 19/07/2016 by Castillocd183 (1 review written)

Avoid this developer at all costs. There builders and site manager at Lyde Green,Bristol are extremely rude they rarely follow any good health and safety practice when moving large vehicles near residents homes who have already moved in. They have persistently asked us to move out vehicle from the street outside the property despite us raising a complaint with them that we only have one off street parking space and being a disabled resident I need to park near my property. Despite this there… Read Full Review

“What customer service?”

Written on: 16/07/2016 by Steve.G (1 review written)

We bought a brand new Bellway home and as you would expect we looked forward to moving in. The Bellway staff were all smiles & treated us like we were old friends. Once we moved in the site manager "popped round' to see that everything was okay and he just had a few buts of paper that needed signing off. "don't worry about this & that" we were assured, " ill get that sorted out this week". DON'T sign anything unless you wish to close the matter. We have spent more than a year battling to have… Read Full Review

“Kings reach development”

Written on: 15/07/2016 by Sandy7689 (1 review written)

Never ever buy a home from bellway homes. The finishing of the house is rubbish. The walls in our kitchen were not smooth which meant we had to resize our appliances. They randomly put sheds in the middle of the garden and then refuse to move the shedit. Every snag is met with "the house has been passed by nhbc standards" which politely means we are not doing anything for you. The handover person even said that there are so many uneducated people living on this development that they haven't got… Read Full Review

“Customer Care Experience ”

Written on: 14/07/2016 by CollinCollins (1 review written)

The Customer Care Experience is 2nd to none! Abbottswood is the most wonderful site you can possibly have bought a house on. Over looking an excellent conservation area and only a short walk to Romsey. There is a lovely country walk of 1, 1/2 miles around the perimeter of the development which gives you the feel of country life but so close to all amenities. The sunsets are fantastic. All Bellway Homes are now sold so keep an eye open for resales as they go as soon as they come to… Read Full Review
