"Nightmare New Builds"

"I think people who buy new homes should expect perfection. They wouldn’t accept a new car with ten defects, and they wouldn’t expect over 90% of new cars to have defects, so why this is acceptable in a new home."

A decade on: Devizes housing development -  Ben Prater


BBC-Radio-Wiltshire-Adopted-roads-11-Jan-2017-Edited.mp3People in Devizes are still fighting to get their roads and lighting finished a decade on. BBC Radio Wiltshire reports on a David Wilson Homes' development that is still without streetlight ten years after the last home moved in. New Home Expert founder of website brand-newhomes.co.uk a website that advises people buying new homes what do you make of this?

"House builders don’t really give a service to buyers, after the first 8 to 10 weeks once the buyer have completed the HBF/NHBC survey. They only care about their star rating. I have buyers contact me almost daily basis complaining that they have been let down by their builders asking me what they can do and what safeguards they’ve got. The reality is they have got no protection at all.


If they could go to a government-appointed independent new homes ombudsman, who could then adjudicate on the disputes and actually pay them justifiable compensation. There isn’t a single route a buyer can take to get compensation. The best they can hope for is at some stage their homes will be brought up to the standard they should have been when they first moved in."
