North East England

North East England is a region of contrasts. Wild, rugged landscapes dominate the north of this corner of England, while the south is more widely populated, with major cities and arable land. In the north of the region, Northumberland sits on the border with Scotland. It’s the least populated ceremonial county in England and has a culture closer to the Scottish Lowlands than England. To the south, the local identity is shaped by the cities: Newcastle upon Tyne, Durham and Sunderland, along with key towns such as Middlesbrough, Gateshead and Darlington.

Dusty roads constantly

Workman don’t consider residents when parking

Please review your development:

Roads need cleaning and workman need to take more care. Find myself cleaning my car every week due to dust

Workman park In front of driveways without checking

Grounds work are the worst for this when they are planting gardens. There is just much more consideration needed

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

The living residents need to be so considered more when other construction is on going

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

Slowly and unresponsive, they don’t manage the snags well

I would avoid.

Review Date May 2022

I was a tenant at the green for almost 4 years it was very good at first but as the on site development was completed and no one was on site anymore for maintenance and repairs it went downhill rapidly. We had a lifting floor for 18 months, recurrent damp and vandalism of the green (and cars) and to top it off when we had enough and left they tried to take £400 of out deposit for a TINY burn on a worktop layer reduced to £180 when we contested it. Avoid placefirst they appear the perfect landlords on paper, and if they lived up to what they say they would be but they are far far away from what they say.

Please review your development:

The house was nice however given there were only 3 internal doors and the current cost of living crisis it cost a fortune to heat and that was before the huge increase in energy prices. The communal areas were lovely before the constant vandalism. CCTV camera were present but apparently useless because they could not access them 🤦

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

That the area the green was in was one of the most deprived areas in the country with high crime and although the houses were nice the rent demanded in the area is unrealistic

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

Ignored most of them. When we had a lifting floor for 18 months they sent people out to “look at it” on 5 occasions but still never fixed it. (They have now we have moved out) we are friends with the neighbour and within 2 weeks of us leaving it was fixed

Terrible

Review Date Apr 2022

Unknown.

Please review your development:

Would never purchase a home through Miller’s again, very incompetent. Our home was due to be ready for March this year, they have only just started to build the house and have fobbed us off with a million excuses. They have not been communicating with us and they do not care that this has cost us more in rent. Extremely disappointed.

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

I wish we would have known that the house would not be ready anywhere near the time it was supposed to be. I wish we knew how poor the communication would be after the contracts were signed and I wish we went with another housing company as have heard better things about others.

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

No concern whatsoever. Replies are delayed and we are fobbed off with various excuses with no actual resolution to our issues.

I wish I’d known there was such an issue with the car park that would cause so many frustrating nights of no sleep.

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

They have taken days to come back to resolve the issue when the car park alarm goes off. No one when you call is any use.. just continually “following procedures” which don’t help the situation.
