The development is good.
Barratt Homes have been very helpful in fixing the old bits here and there.
The design is pleasing to look at and it works for what it is.
They use Ground Solutions to maintain the landscape surrounding the area and I have seen them quite often.
Overall, Barratt Homes provided a very good service throughout the purchasing phase as well as customer care.
Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:
The location is just about 15/20 minutes away from the grand central train station in Birmingham and bus routes are easily accessible. It’s just a short walk away from china town so it’s very convenient.
Parking requires a permit so if you have more than one car then it isn’t ideal as only one space is available per household. This development site is near a busy main road and with a hospital nearby then you will hear the emergency services passing by atleast once a day. The area itself is nearby a deprived area so there have been incidences of anti-social behavior. However, there have been some CCTV installed outside some apartment buildings as a deterrent.
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
I was completely enamored with their show home so I was a little disappointed when I found that my home lacked the same finesse. However, that is to be expected. I would just say to inspect the property through for paint chipping, missing silicon, just the little things. The after care is superb so getting little things done afterwards is easy and straightforward.
How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:
Their after care team is very good. Their response times have been suerb despite being in a pandemic.
