The development over all is very good indeed

Verified Resident

Review Date Nov 2021

Quite far from a train station, but gentry well connected to local infrastructure.

Please review your development:

The development over all is very good indeed. Particular care and consideration has been placed on ensuring wild spaces, including several areas of wild flowers/ meadow, well designed pond areas and mature trees, which gives the estate a spacious feel.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

That a large bypass was to be built relatively close to the estate. And that another large developer had purchased the land next to the estate, which used to be rural.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Initially quite slowly, however once any problems were raised to the appropriate department I cannot fault the response.

Great new road & makes it easier to get to the next town In less time
Some nice local bars within the area

Please review your development:

There is a regular change in management within Jones homes.
We had an extreme amount of issues & some very major. The 1st few weeks was ok but then Jones eagerness faded & it took months to complete by constantly getting onto them as voice messages were ignored. Also we pay for services & the Communal greenery we have is appalling & embarrassing to Jones.
All the private grass is also full of weeds & ragwort witch ispotentially poisonous & harmful!

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Do snag list & keep on at Jones on speed dial to get issues sorted

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Took time on many occasions left numerous messages some not answered?

Very poor company

Verified Resident

Review Date Nov 2021

The single good aspect is the location. It is rural. Public transport is limited so residents need to drive.
The bad aspects are poor standard of construction, poor quality of interiors & bad communication. Covenants are not maintained, so camper vans and other breaches are already evident.

Please review your development:

The site of Earlsbrook is deeply troubled. The build plan is chaotic. No single road is completed, leaving unfinished houses in between occupied homes. The site is unkempt. The drainage is already an issue, with severe water pooling after rain.
My property has been steeped in problems, including a plaster mite infestation through not being dried out properly, dangerous faulty wiring & faulty plumbing, poor plastering & tiling, uneven floors, bad joinery. It is a tiresome battle to get Laurus Homes and their partner Lane End Construction Ltd to remedy the endless list of faults.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Extremely poor quality of build.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Management company yet to take over site. The building company currently manage it, but do not maintain it at all. Unsold plots are unkempt, roads are dirty and often left with builder debris and tools. Site construction vehicles often block the only entry in and out of the estate.

There are two local pubs close by and the train station itself at Delamere. There is an excellent local shop on the main road.

Please review your development:

The design of the estate appears to be very good and the layout from the plans is also excellent. The services and facilities provided are of a high standard and the individual house design also makes a big difference to overall image. Overall the site has been planned well.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Much easier to get new furniture etc. delivered to the address once you move in.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

There have been some teething problems with the new house but all the service response has been good.
