Hill is an award-winning housebuilder and one of the leading developers in London and the south east of England, delivering both private for sale and affordable homes. This family-owned and operated company has grown to establish itself as the UK’s second-largest privately-owned housebuilder. It has an impressive and diverse portfolio ranging from landmark mixed-use regeneration schemes and inner-city apartments to homes in idyllic rural countryside.

Hill prides itself on putting its customers first and has a dedicated customer journey designed to help buyers at every step of the way to homeownership. Hill was awarded a 5 star status from the Home Builders Federation’s annual Customer Satisfaction Survey in 2018, 2019 & 2020 & 2021.

Hill has won over 460 industry awards in the past 23 years, including Best Medium Housebuilder at the Housebuilder Awards in 2020 and 2021.

In conjunction with Building with Nature, Hill was awarded a 2021 Housing Design Award for its highly sustainable Knights Park development in Eddington, Cambridge.

Hill builds around 2,400 homes a year, and around half of the company’s development portfolio is in joint venture to deliver affordable homes, reflecting Hill’s commitment to partnering with government, local authorities and housing associations.  In 2019, to mark its 20th anniversary and to give back to local communities, Hill Group designed and is donating 200 fully equipped modular homes to homelessness charities as part of a £15 million pledge through its award-winning Foundation 200 social impact initiative.

Quiet and clean

My house has been designed specifically for wheelchair use which means it’s big and spacious making it comfortable for me to move around with a wheelchair. Its stays pretty warm in the winter but does get too hot in the summer. We weren’t given any furniture when moving in but the process of shifting was easy! We dont get much noise from traffic apart from a few police cars and its very safe living here! There are many local shops nearby, e.g an Iceland about 10mins away. The parks are great for the kids when we need to get them out! Building management are okay, we did have a major leak when we moved in which is unusual for a new build but the issue was dealt with. We have to contact the council to who contact Hill for repairs.

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

Like – Its quite close to the kids school which makes it a convenient place to live.
Dislike – Theres not enough disabled parking in the area which means its difficult to find parking spaces big enough so that we can easily get my wheelchair in and out.

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

I wish I knew about the lack of disabled parking before moving in.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

The property should’ve come with a disabled parking space!

Pretty and Green

I love living here! There’s loads of parks and greenery which makes it more visually pleasing. I can easily walk to Hammersmith and theres a road local to us full of cute coffee shops. I do wish that the high street had more to offer as there are only a few chicken shops and corner stores. The area is also quite safe, I feel comfortable living here. We were told we get 4 visitor parking spaces however we never got this. My flat is great! We’ve had no structural damages so its been built with good quality. I haven’t had to use the heating much as the flat retains a lot of heat! The bills and council tax are reasonably priced. The flat is modern, bright and spacious, I get light coming in all day. The kitchen is the best part of the flat. The building management are a little slow with taking care of issues as we’ve heard however we’ve had no issues which is great. Our neighbours are friendly and easy to live around.

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

Like – The transport links are great, I can commute around London easily.
Dislike – There aren’t enough supermarkets in the area.

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

Theres nothing I wish I knew about this development before moving in.

The houses are a good design with lovely upgraded aspects in kitchens, bathrooms and flooring.

The houses are a good design with lovely upgraded aspects in kitchens, bathrooms and flooring. We were very disappointed with our service during the buying process and this would hugely put us off buying with them again. We are happy with the house now we are in it but it does feel like as soon as you move in then that’s it, no one checks in etc. 28 days to find all snags is fine but some things you just don’t notice in that time and are then stuck. More parking would be helpful for the houses with a garage so they don’t park on the road or in visitor spaces.
We set out a huge amount of problems and issues in our hand over meeting where we were asked to fill out a form about the buying process but we heard nothing back from this. Seems very little point in filling this out if we never hear anything back. It appears that as soon as money is handed over then no one cares.

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

Very close to town which is great. A big shame is there is already a lot of people parking on the street which makes it look messy and causes issues. Some houses permanently use visitor bays so actual visitors cannot use them. The park by the cricket pitch is very disappointing with the lack of equipment.

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

Being able to see the type of house we were buying would be helpful as it’s not one of the show homes.

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

All snags were fixed in a good time. Staff were nice and friendly.

Great on the outside, not so on the inside…

The overall look and feel to the outside has a luxurious feel. However, the development itself (i.e. the materials used, goods used, technical processes) has all been done to reduce the cost, so the quality has been compromised all the way.

The service has been also appalling ; delayed responses to urgent queries, issues with balconies failing quality standards, and huge delays in producing annual statements. Overall the value is average mainly due to location

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

Transport links are amazing – 3 mins to tube, 24 hour bus opposite the development etc. Supermarket right across the road and a great cansl parh to take a walk) cycle as well. Very pleasant feel and not too crowded

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

More insight on materials and infrastructure used such as for heating, broadband etc
