    Barratt Homes PL2 - massive delays - what can we do?

    Sorry to hear about this. As you rightly state they will have no contractual penalty as a result of this. You could try writing to the CEO directly with the information above and see what happens. If you did want to go down the Small Claim Route you need to ask them to put the situation right...

    Nicholas King Homes

    I have not heard of them which is a good thing. If they are a small family run business, for example, you will probably get a much better quality home and better service. Good luck.

    Persimmon moving date do I have any say in this?

    It will make Xmas more stressful for sure, esp as many year end houses are rushed so they can hit their targets and may have more than the usual number of problems. However, you might get lucky.

    No new posts for a while - have things got better?

    Welcome to the forum. I don't know whether they have the most complaints, but the contractors that build these homes work for many different companies. The house-builders are just a brand.

    Taking developer to Small Calims for stress, inconvenience etc

    I think you will struggle, you need to be out of pocket and claim back the expenses. That is straightforward.

    snagging - do cosmetic items ourselves & negotiate reduced price?

    The answer is already no - you have nothing to lose by asking. However, if it is one of the bigger builders it will be more difficult as there is going to be less flexibility in a big corporation. Some people agree retention clauses until the snagging is done.

    Really surprised this section is empty

    They used to feature a lot... not sure what happened. Perhaps there are some forums/facebook groups just focussed on DWH

    Plans show a bathroom window, there isn't one there.

    Hello Katie, many of the plans that you see in the brochures have disclaimers stating that they are for illustration only or some such wording. However, if you have the plans that were used for the build then you do have a good case. Your conservancy solicitor should sort this for you. I...

    Medical community outraged by this 21 day weight loss secret?

    Very good Dez... I think the lucky ones lose money, some get seriously ill with the stress and worry of it all. However, some good can come out of it. For example, it can bring communities together whether an online one like this or a housing estate with a common enemy etc.

    Service charge

    I seem to remember someone starting a petition about this as it is largely unregulated. There must be a contract somewhere, ask to see it.

    Bellway Garden dying

    I had the turf replaced on my home - basically they hadn't prepared the ground properly before laying the turf so it died. I am guessing a similar problem. Good luck with the NHBC

    Medical community outraged by this 21 day weight loss secret?

    Is it possible to melt away one to two pounds of stubborn body fat every single day? It sounds insane, but according to the scientific proof — and the thousands who have already done it themselves using this secret — the answer is YES. You will never guess how it’s done... (Hint: It’s NOT about...

    Very loud sub-floor footstep sound

    In the first instance get in contact with your builder, in writing, and ask them to assess and put it right within a reasonable period of time - 4 weeks. If that doesn't work, then you should contact the warranty provider - NHBC probably. Let us know how you get on. Cheers, Tony
