Beautiful house, Development has been slow

the houses are built okay, we have had some issues. the small snags were addressed in the first 2 weeks others have just been left for us to resolve ourselve. the development was suppose to be completed in sept 2021. its now may 2022 and it is still not complete. roads have only been surfaced this month. the gates at the front of the development have never worked (and we have had some security issues since moving in too, the gates being close could have prevented this). the meadow is full of dead weeds and hasn’t been maintained. there is mud everywhere and it looks so untidy. overall the location and house is lovely however the time scales haven’t been met and it seems Allison homes seem to not be bothered with your issues after you have moved in. everything before hand was smooth and simple. however when we first came to ask to view a property, the lady in the office told us we were very young and did we understand the responsibility of owning a home… this was all before she had begun to get to know us and before she knew I worked in the mortgage sector.

I did manage to contact the director of the development and she believed the estate was signed off as complete and was shocked when I said what work was still needed. She said she would call me back within 7 days with an update about my concerns, however I have still not heard back from her.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

the local area is fine, the parking on my street is limited. our plot was sold to us with a garage next to our house, however our garage is below a flat 2 doors down. there is easy access to out estate both via road and footpath.

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

you have to keep chasing up for things you are promised. you aren’t given everything your promised

What is the best feature of your home:

the layout of the estate, well separated and houses are facing different ways. I love the size of our home.

Poor construction and management

Very poor example of construction and management of customer care by Alison Homes in Boston.
I own this property in Dec 2019 and today in April 2022, handles of doors are not working properly, electricity sockets are loose and some of them are stopped working, main door frame is loose and moving during open and closing of door, vinyl behind the kitchen sink cam out almost in a year after bought property and customer care took more than a year to handle this and finally push blame on us using more water cause vinyl came out. At the time of boiler service British gas engineer notified that wiring connection of boiler is not correct and it’s never switching off and after talked to customer care they again put blame on us saying service not done on time, till now I am thinking what is a relation between service and faulty wiring. Hight of the poor construction is galas in shower room broken in pieces and fall down in shower room when no one was inside. Just imagine if it’s happen during if any of my family member in shower room, anyone of us may loos a life.
If you call customer care, they are well trained to behave rudely and very well trained for passing blames on customers.
Other than this Gates on main entrance is fixed since past almost 6 months and never start working, garden for kids are not ready. No traffic signs in side the complex.
Be careful before you buy homes from Allison homes Boston.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Location of property is good because of work place is walking distance.
No near by shop around the property and the nearest one is either near John Adams R/A or Dobbies on winfleet road.
Burton house and The meal is the closest Pub/Restaurant near property.

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

Though it’s a good reputed developer.

What is the best feature of your home:

With Allison home no further, will never recommend anyone to buy a house with this developer

I have been in my new home for 2 years now. Have had no structural problems or majors issues. The minor cosmetic issues were addressed as soon as we raised the alarm. So the quality of the build is very good. Would have loves to have more space upstairs in the bedrooms, perhaps the design should have been ammended a little bit.

The design of the downstairs is very spacious but the bedrooms upstairs are quite small, especially the Master Bedroom. I would rather have had a small landing and have a bigger master bedroom.

Another thing I dont like about the design is that the downstairs toilet leads straight into the kitchen. Not really ideal in my opinion.

The garden is also very small, for a detached house.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Close to local amenities and town centre. Living in my street is very noisy at the present due to ongoing construction, hopefully it will be finished soon.

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

*Size of Bedrooms too small and Garden too small

* There is also no playground area for kids, have to walk to the nearest park

What is the best feature of your home:

Spacious living room and kitchen. I particularly love the bay window in the living room, it brings so much light into the room

Not as happy as I thought I would be.

I am not sure whether it is part of the plan to create another green space but it would be good for the many children that play outside each day.

It would be good if they can start improving the quality of the streets and sidewalks. I understand they probably want to wait for construction to finish but the road is in a terrible condition. The side walks as you drive into the development is also terrible and can do with some improvement. There are obviously also people that house share so it is annoying having to drive out of the estate with all the extra vehicles parked on the side of the road or on the side walk.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

It’s still very noisy due to all of the construction vehicles. Area is good with shops nearby. They could definitely add another green space.

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

I find the quality of the house in general not very positive. We have a lot of tiny things that need to be repaired. The can use a little higher quality things in the house – bathtub, shower, paint. Some bits look cheaply done – skirting boards are going yellow and we have not even been in the house for a year. Even though we take good care of our property it just looks really warn after just 10 months on the house and that is because of the low quality of materials they use to build it.

What is the best feature of your home:

We love the size of our kitchen/dining room. We also enjoy our back garden.
