Lack of care and attention to detail by Persimmon 😞

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.

Customer isn’t the best

Customer service isn’t the best, hard to get hold of. Everything you need is in the one place. Value for money is a bit too expensive, considering moving to somewhere more affordable, but really enjoying my time living here.

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

The building is quite nice, very central and easy to get to places, train station is so close so i like that loads of shops so never bored, but very busy so annoying at night.

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

I wish I had known how noisy it was going to be, but apart from that it is a good flat

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

Very slow at getting things done, wish they were so much more helpful than they actualy are.

Poor

There are no facilities for residents to use. The flats aren’t built of good quality materials and it feels cheap. The flat looks different to the showroom. The development feels safe, good security but the flat needs more storage space. They sold it well, marketing was good and I went under the assumption that showroom was accurate.

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

No transport, no amenities near here, need to go into uxbridge for shops etc. The developers are going to build a tesco, but no timeline.

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

The build quality, wish there had been more accurate timelines for delivery.

Why did you choose this development:

they sold it well, marketing was good, went under the assumption that showroom was accurate

Overall love it!

I really like that the design is different for each house. Great that there’s a running track and lots of children’s parks on the development too.
The transport/bus service could be improved, but there are more buses a short walk away.
For the house itself, it was the ensuite for the master bedroom (on its own floor), that sold it for me.

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

There’s a nursery, shop and takeaway just 5 minutes walk door to door. Would be great if there was a doctors as promised, but that’s only 20 minutes walk, so not too bad

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

Would have been good to know how much time/perseverance I would need to chase Persimmon Homes, but it was worth it

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

If given a choice, I would want more parking so people could park when visiting
