After being in our property for nearly a year now I would 100% never buy from Barwood again and would say don’t do it , they just don’t care we have had so so many things go wrong at our property and still going wrong we have had tiles replaced with totally different shades and there just not interested with our complaint. We’ve had leaks sinks coming off walls , stair case dropping , no insulation in the loft , movement in our showers ,lead and slates missing from the roof , towel rails coming away from the walls , pump on boiler, lots of cracks in plaster work , down pipes coming away from walls , garage door needed replacing , rain water coming into garage , alarm box coming away from wall , drive way sinking , pointing missing , extractor vents not connected, utility room extractor burnt out, the day we moved in we couldn’t lock our doors for two days I could go on and on as well as trying to get the grass replaced that was dead

What a horrible experience this has been. I agreed a sale on a stock plot, which needed a lot of re-work. After 4 weeks, nothing. After raising my concerns they would not let me view the property but insisted I exchange contracts. They failed to address all my concerns, passed a sign off as fit for sale. My 22 year old house is in better condition. I raised my concerns to the Directors who are not leaders, brand focused or even care, they did not even have the curtesy to acknowledge my emails. I am now liable for all legal costs and have no house to move to. Gutted.

Why did you give them 4 stars? They don’t deserve any at all.

I think your quite lucky and may have got off lightly , had you had purchased you might have had to put up with all the crap we have had to , some of the workmanship is very poor

I assume you meant to give this ONE star - you need to go into it and correct it if that is so because it helps give Barwood a false, higher star rating and they don’t deserve it

Promise after promise is broken I should have moved into my house in January 19 still waiting. Next target of April missed and again by the end of May which looks like it will be missed again. I've had to move out of my house other wise I would have lost my buyers as they had already waited 5 months for Barwood to get their act together. Barwood know that we are homeless now but just cant quite get themselves organised enough to finish my house when they said they would on the third attempt.

Having purchased 5 new build homes in the past 5 years from different builders, Barwood Homes is by far the worst to deal with and for poor quality. It was many months late and the quality was terrible. After 2 years, there are still many major deficiencies outstanding. I would NEVER buy a Barwood home again - a terrible experience.

1 year on after exchange of contracts and there is still no real idea of completion. Building delays can only be put down to bad management, certainly not bad weather. Getting information from Barwood management is like getting blood out of a stone.

We initially looked at all the local new build houses around Banbury and finally decided that we would go with Barwood Homes. In April 2016 we reserved a property and were told that completion was expected around May/June as there were only 10 properties and were all started. June went by and were then told July. This also went by and eventually told definitely end of September only for the usual excuses to be then told most definitely 23rd of November.
We then had a meeting with a director to be given more excuses and told absolutely 31st January.
It got to the 30th and still no confirmation from Barwood except their solicitor confirming that it would be ready. However after a site inspection it was discovered that the property was in no condition to move in with still more work to be completed.
We have been told that it will be ready 2nd February but are still waiting for confirmation that we can in fact move on any specific date.
I must add that in almost the year that this has taken we have dealt with at least 9 different sales personnel and 5 different site managers.
The lack of communication and updates from the sales team is extremely frustrating and to say a lot of the new staff come from Persimmon and other large building companies bringing their ideas of customer service.
However despite this we are looking forward to moving into the house eventually.

I am confused by the rating - 5 stars yet you have been given the runaround and have been misled and had many delays. Did you finally get in and what was the house like in the end? We’re there many snagging issues, etc.?

Were you satisfied with the house when you eventually moved in?
I am in a similar situation. I put my reservation deposit last year February 9th 2018.
They said September. Then Christmas.Its now nearly a year I've been waiting and still no completion date.
