I was happy to buy my first home, which was unfortunately from Barratt. They checked the house before we moved. we told them few things after we moved in which was done. the gate was placed in the wrong direction by the neighbor parking space and they refused to do it, which wasn't in the planning map.
the house started to have lots of cracks in the walls and by the windows, which was huge ones. most of the plasters covering wall screws came out, exposing the screw heads. 1 year after receiving the house, all taps were unable to lock properly , wasting lots of water, were i have to replace the rubber inside.
18 months after, the sink leaked water to the underneath the counter damaging the wood.
2 years after we decided to install a phone line, we did, but the main phone socket was faulty. I did call Barratt to let them know, but they refused to do it, so I did it myself.
the main bedroom in the 2nd floor always cold, I found out that there is a big whole behind the radiator where the pips come out, with high volume cold air comes into the room that caused loss of heat.
overall, we are not happy with Barratt , there homes are not worth the money payed for. they mislead people and government doing nothing about it as far as they getting their taxes paid.
Summary: be carfull of buying new built home, especially from Barratt, check more reviews and take your time.
