NevaehSilva's review of David Wilson Homes


“Barratt David Wilson Homes - Appalling and shoddy. . .”

Written on: 13/02/2018 by NevaehSilva (1 review written)

Purchased a new BDW home, only to find out by chance a few months later, it had been partially built on land they did not own, so no title deeds could be issued.
Initially, BDW tried to cover it up but along with two other houses also affected, they finally admitted we'd been sold our houses in breach of contract.
It's taken almost a year for them to purchase the land they didn't own but it's been handle appallingly.
No apologies made, no understanding of the stress and anxiety it's caused, nothing but complete incompetence.
How does a so called award winning house builder, construct three houses on land they did not own? You couldn't make it up.
The legal profession's advice, well, there's nothing you can do, now they've bought the land, so problem solved.
The solicitors, recommended by BDW for conveyancing, also screwed up for not carrying out searches as requested. The legal advice, they cannot be sued either.
You choose what appears to be a bona fide company to buy a new house and it turns out, they are complete incompetents. It's a conveyor belt of construction, carried out by sub-contractors who's work is never checked properly, hence, you have all these complaints for bad and faulty workmanship.
It's driven by the government's completely misplaced legislation to build houses at a rate that cannot be achieved.
Houses built some 60 years ago and before, were not perfect but they're still standing today, come back in 60 years time and the houses being built today, will not be standing. I predict a massive, future problem for houses being built today and to get a mortgage to buy one in the future, will be impossible.
