Ok so I purchased a Barratt home in the northeast recently. We reserved back in June and got them to throw in appliances and flooring throughout. We were initially told that our home would be ready in November. This was pushed back to December and as the end of November approached we were told December 20th at the latest. Not ideal but ok at least we knew where we stood. We were given a completion date of the 18th but on the day were told that the carpets weren't finished so it was pushed back to the 19th. On the 19th we got our home tour and at first glance we were happy, the house looked good and the site manager seemed keen to do a good job. After the tour we went back to the site office and were told that money had come through and the house was ours...yay! We went back for a proper inspection and did notice some issues with the finish and also that the light and power in the loft that we'd paid for hadn't been fitted. We reported this and as it was one of the last days before Christmas accepted it wouldn't be in til the new year. We then decided to try the dishwasher...lucky we did as it promptly poured water all over the floor and the sink cupboard. We reported this and in credit to them it was sorted within the hour as was the hot water which we found hadn't been switched on properly by the plumber. On the advice of this site we then got in a snagger having been unable to do so before as the house wasn't finished til literally the day we completed. His verdict was that structurally and externally the house was good but inside has been rushed and it shows! He used stickers to show areas where the finish is poor and our house now looks like it has a bad case of measles, sigh! Two big problems were that the downstairs floors are completely uneven and go up and down like a dog's hind leg and in the downstairs loo they seem to have run out of matching basin and pedestals and have grafted two non matching ones together with mastic. The overall report is some 20 pages long but i haven't had a chance to go over it with site management yet as they're not back til the 6th. I will keep you all updated on how i get on and how willing Barratt homes are to put things right.
