Excellent range of shops and restaurants local, even in walking range of house.

Please review your development:

One bedroom apartment excellent space and design. I’m happy of the size of the rooms and never feel like it’s too small. Building management was good, just wish the road was completed as I feel this should be done now.

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

Only issue is that the road is still not completed, not good for my car

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

Response was quick to any issues that was raised. Always keeping me in the know with issues too

No shops, no restaurants, bars.A lot of road bumps make driving “SAFE”…Lot of construction traffic.

Please review your development:

I reported issue with waste pipes along with many others on 10/02/20 -today on 18/09/21 is still not solved!!!!Ridiculous!!!!Customer care team is totally usuless,they just making stupid excuses eg “our team member was on holiday”…I had three or four plumbers inspections and they still don”t know how to repair it.I sent countless emails asking for any updates but they ignored them…
If I decide sell flat in the future existing issue going to lower resell value or puts off potential buyers.
Thats why they force me to find justice in court.
My advice? Barrats -AVOID!!!!

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

if you REALLY want to buy property from Barrats check EVERYTHING!!!!I mean it…

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

They are bunch of ignorants, avoid serious issues.How is it possible they were voted best developer….????!!!!

The development is situated in North Yate which is a nice area, but it is far from the town centre. The people who live here are nice and there is a community feel. The park that has been built recently looks nice.

However, the building work is unbearable, I know it is as to be expected when buying a new build. But, when I purchased my plot I was assured that the building traffic was going to move further away soon. This has not happened and the road outside my home is used as a builders race track. The only time I get peace is on a Sunday as the constant noise is extreme. This has been exasperated by Lockdown as we have been working from home. The roads into the development are a shambles, you may as well be driving over the surface of the moon. The parking isn’t great.

Please review your development:

The development is maintained with grass cutting occurring every 2 weeks at 8am. The new park that has been built looks nice. The management company for the apartments is expensive, but they do come and clean the communal areas every two weeks. A local shop is being built which will be a good addition to the development. However, we were promised more, including a pub, cafe and a decent community centre. Most of those things are not coming and instead the shop is being topped with more flats.

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

Think carefully about what plot you pick and how close it is to the main building traffic. If you don’t work form home this won’t be such an issue though.

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

Most were dealt with with no issues. However, some required stern words to get them sorted. I had a bad leak in the roof of the building which ruined my bathroom ceiling and was causing water to drip through the ceiling. This took 2+ weeks to have fixed and they left the scaffolding up outside my window for months after.

Building management is ok – no problems so far

It’s not fully developed yet so there are shops and facilities yet to be built. Currently there’s a Tesco express down the road which is very handy but it would benefit from another local shop. Parking and road layout is annoying because you can only get one car down the road at a time.

Please review your development:

Building management is ok – no problems so far. There are stains on the carpets in the shared area of the flats which the cleaner doesn’t clean deep enough to fix. Design of the flats is nice, I have no problems with noise other than when the flats all have their windows open the noise carries

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

It is quite a lively and noisy neighbourhood, I think because it’s typically younger families and couples

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

I have had no problems as yet so can’t comment on this
