There should be a place where legitimate complaints can be put on line and a new customer checking for builders could see if they are about to employ a bad builder from the list and also a list of pending complaints. My builder seems to chop and change names so there should be some legislation to show if they traded under a different name before they must state this name.

I literally had my head in my hands this afternoon. Didn't know anything was going on. Went home and found part of my roof peeled back by the next door builder!

The builder even skipped my tiles from a height so I can't even have them back on the roof. My Friday is pure despair

No word from my neighbour either. Note: never buy a terraced house

I purchased a new built apartment and I noticed that there is a strong noise coming from pipes of the upper flats. I reported the case to NHBC as it has a waranty for two years but I ring the developer builder and he does not answer the calls . The apartment is in a convenient location but the construction not so impressed.

Sometimes I hear footsteps on the uuper flat which is not normal .

I was new to the UK property market and one of the reasons I wanted to buy a new property is to avoid all the poblems of second hand homes with renovation etc . Also I spent time abroad and I did not have much time to inspect the property prior to the purchase . The thing I select this one and not another is because of the location close to town centre and railway station .

On the internet I did not find much about the developer as it is incorporated in 2002.
