I love the design of my house which is a Mayfair. But the overall design of the estate is very poor. There is only one road going into the estate when they could have been two.
There are areas of grass which could’ve made parking spaces or extra gardens for people.
Even though the estate is now complete, the roads are still not finished, there is a lot of builders rubbish which has been dumped by the beautiful nature reserve which is a real shame.
There are no bins or dog bins on the estate, which results in a lot of rubbish being left on the grassy areas.
The design of the estate should’ve incorporated areas for people to put their bins and recycling bins as these look very unsightly.
Persimmon are very slow to put errors correct, the attention to detail is absent, houses have not been checked before residents have moved in, new residents have missed lots of snagging issues as they don’t understand Construction.
Overall I would not have moved into this estate if I had known the issues there.
Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:
The road that I live in is very friendly, we are a small group of families who help each other out, especially during the pandemic.
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
I would say to anyone buying a new property, get everything the sales person says in writing because they are dishonest to get a sale. Don’t believe things like you have to purchase their carpet otherwise the carpet can only be fitted after you move in, there is a disclaimer form you can sign as I find out, when I wouldn’t purchase their carpet.
Do not accept their excuses for things not completed correctly, check it out with other people with the same house type on your estate.
How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:
The building company hasn’t taken over yet, as the roads and pavements are not complete.
