“Heating and Plumbing issues”

Written on: 12/11/2017 by Elelephant (1 review written)

I have had a Bellway property for 23 years I agree with another review. Bellway plumbers fitted microbore piping in my home and the system has caused many difficulties and proved very expensive. I dealt with British Gas who are useless and now being treated badly by my a heating company known as Barrett Heating who have taken my money and not done the promised work… Read Full Review

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

Stay WELL CLEAR of these houses, extremely poor workmanship, poor finish, and once they have your money, the customer care team wipe their hands of you, absolutely shocking, would advise you to stay well clear as a majority of the houses have the same issues… Read Full Review

“First Impressions ”

Written on: 26/10/2017 by Dieselpower888 (1 review written)

The person I dealt with @ Heaton Manor Development - Heaton Moor Absolutely Exceptional. We expressed an enquiry in a Property on the development and her focus and informative delivery was second to none with a very happy couple leaving the showroom. She is a credit to Bellway and we look forward to securing our dream home with her. A genuine example of a first class service. Her friendly and professional manner was instantly delivered and it was like we had known her for years making us… Read Full Review

“Avoid! Massive plumbing issues”

Written on: 13/10/2017 by 388Pierce (1 review written)

Avoid ! The plumbing of the properties is shocking ! I live on the barking riverside and all my neighbors and myself have paid thousands to repair plumbing errors caused by poor workmanship and equipment ! Leaks causing us 3000 and 5000 pounds water bills ! British gas doesn't insure our boilers and heating systems due to the terrible condition of our new builds and the amount of repairs on the area!!!! Never again !!!!… Read Full Review

“Unhappy Customer!”

Written on: 25/09/2017 by Jayson482 (1 review written)

During the purchase transaction, we were informed that Bellway was following up the fact that BT Open reach had still not come out to start the necessary internet network setup. Bellway had been following up for a while apparently (development has been ongoing for at least 2 years now), this was the story almost 5/6 months since we started our completion process and to date, still in same boat! What am most angry about is the manner I feel Bellway trivialised the whole situation, it seemed… Read Full Review

“Falling to bits”

Written on: 25/09/2017 by user76765 (2 reviews written)

They cannot do enough for you when you first move in then once you've given them a good review on the customer satisfaction survey they are not bothered in the slightest. I have been in my Belway house 3 years now, it took them 2 years to replace a velux window trim which was missing resulting in all the plasterwork around the window bubbling from damp, all the edging on the kitchen doors coming off & now I have roof tiles falling off smashing onto the back garden where my children play, they… Read Full Review

“The Hallows Home From Hell”

Written on: 23/09/2017 by Campbell348 (1 review written)

Would you buy a home with the following issues? Doors that are misaligned. Leaking roof. Poor plastering (my son could do better and he is not in his teens yet). Poor electrical installation. Walls that are not "square". Flooded internal garage. Damproof level below external lawn. A warranty that is not worth the paper it is written on! Just a few of the initial faults I have found. Come and see... Viewing recommended… Read Full Review

“Avoid at all cost”

Written on: 12/09/2017 by CameronDugan (1 review written)

How Bellways Houses stand I'll never know! The majority of their workers are out of their faces on all sorts of drugs "fact" The company could do with doing regularly drug testing all workers and not just choosing the workers they know will pass on the rare occasion. I know this as I work on the Kent / gravesend sites and see it daily. The amount of drugs and verify is actually quiet shocking! There's even an alcoholic on site. The bosses go out of their way to protect their "Good workers"… Read Full Review

“Awful experience”

Written on: 25/08/2017 by bobbobson1234 (1 review written)

Myself and my partner have had an absolutely awful experience with Bellway. The communication from staff was awful and the trainee worker didn't know anything about the property and anything she did tell us was incorrect. We were told we were getting one style kitchen (a beautiful Silver Spec one!) to only find out that our kitchen was a horrible gold standard kitchen. We asked them to change the kitchen back to the silver spec and they reeled of some boohockey about the kitchen being made to… Read Full Review

“Anyone looking to buy a new build do not go to...”

Written on: 22/07/2017 by TerrenceMurdock (1 review written)

Anyone looking to buy a new build do not go to Bellway. They over value properties by 15,000 - 20,000 and when your mortgage company do not agree with the price if you do not pay the difference they threaten you to withdraw the contracts. They are milking first time buyers. It's pathetic and I will end them if it kills me. Customer service is a joke they do not how to deal with customers looking to spend a lot of money on a house… Read Full Review

“Bellway or a takeaway?”

Written on: 12/07/2017 by kfSimmons286 (1 review written)

The customer service is unacceptable. I feel like they treat me like going to buy a fish & chip at local take-away. Oh wait, the takeaway shop treats me better. You will get a better customer service from a £5 worth of sales than £410K. Thank god I didn't go with them… Read Full Review

“cutting corners as a profession”

Written on: 21/06/2017 by iand76 (1 review written)

Bought a new house. Only a racing driver cuts more corners than these guys. They ignore snagging lists, make up things about the build defects to get out of having to rectify them, and simply have no respect for customers. They advertise 5star customer satisfaction, but I cannot see how they ever got that kind of feedback. Looking for a new home? Taylor wimpey aren't too far away!!!!… Read Full Review

“#NEVERBUYBELLWAY”

Written on: 11/05/2017 by Scott0070 (1 review written)

To anyone considering buying a Bellway house ... my advice is think again as the quality of the houses are poor, the quality of the customer service is awful and the overall support structure in place is none exsistant.

Ive had to replace water tank… Read Full Review

“DO NOT BUY A HOUSE FROM BELLWAY!!! ”

Written on: 27/04/2017

We reserved a property from Bellway, we were told by Bellway to instruct the solicitors to start the process and a week later they pull out of the deal and decide to sell the house to someone else so we have lost all the money we paid to the solicitors etc. I have asked them to help us with the fees but they refused to even pay a percentage of it. They do not care about anyone, we have now lost the money we need to buy another house. Do not buy from them, they do not care!… Read Full Review

“Look somewhere else!”

Written on: 18/04/2017 by AandT (1 review written)

Me and my partner bought our apartment 8 months ago and at that time gave a list of snagging to be sorted. 6 months down the line we had to pester Bellway to actually come and sort the issues out, to then be told be numerous rogue contractors that this sort of thing happens over time etc etc. Although we had reported the faults a week in. The contractors they hire are the type to claim the have rang you 4 times and you did not answer the phone so they couldn't get in the property. Although we… Read Full Review
