David Wilson Homes Reviews
Newest Review: ... neighbours had a 2 inch or more gap on every floor. After nearly 18 months of complaints David Wilson Homes remedy was to stuff this with rock wool and their favourite mastic. This has had NO effect what so ever. All of the kitchen doors were damaged and it took 6 months of correspondence for them to agree to replace. Electrical wiring within the property was down right dangerous with sockets in position but cable not screwed in but just placed. The property has painted external walls as per the planning requirements. This was applied in December 2007 and clearly due to the temperature and weather conditions was not correctly applied.

We purchased our home from David Wilson Homes in 2007 and chose Dvid Wilson Homes as they had been in the past seen as a quality builder. Unfortunately this has proven to be far from the case and we have endured and still do nearly 4 years of wrangling with DWH. When we moved into the property we paid for extensive wall tiling but decided to have floor tiling laid after we moved in. When it came to tiling the bathrooms it was decided that to do the work correctly that the wc's and wash basins would be best removed and refitted. To our horror we found that all fittings had not been attached to the wall in the appropriate way using screw fixings but indeed had ... Read the complete review

When first doing business with David Wilson we liked the house and the plan. After putting down our £1000 deposit they told use that the plans had changed and were not updated on their advertising documentation. i.e there was no longer a utility room. After weeks of shifting goals posts and the sales people promising one thing and the builders doing another my trust bottomed out with these people. I pulled out my offer and glad I did. On inspecting the house it was obvious that build quality was poor and cost cutting was high on the agenda. These people are not to be trusted and find it easy to lie to their customers. Its all about making money for them not customer satisfaction. BEWARE OF THESE PEOPLE.

REPUTABLE BUILDER......DEFINATELY NOT, BUNCH OF COWBOYS MORE LIKE IT!!!!! We bought a DWH home in Dec 2006, paid £267,999. DWH have now put the same style property up for sale on our estate (PX prop) for £220,000 even though it was valued at £275/£280,000 to sell!!! Their policy is obviously sell the houses then devalue them!! They say that it is a current market value....I don't think so, especially as the fact is an agent valued it at £280,000. There are people trying to sell their properties at agent valued figures and basically have no chance whatsoever with this one some £60,000 under valued. Has anyone else had a bad experience ...

David Wilson Homes are not to be trusted and are really out to con you out of hard-earned money! Ok, here goes: We were recently interested in a new build property built by David Wilson Homes. We have a house wich is currently on the market and are relocating to a different part of England due to my husband's new job, and so were interested in their part exchange programme, what with the housing market being stagnant at the moment. We viewed a nice house that they had to offer on a new estate near to my husband's new workplace in Derby, and decided to enquire about the part exchange scheme whilst in the sales office. We were told that David Wilson ... Read the complete review

Bought house eighteen months ago, David Wilson are still attending to the original snags which were reported on completion. In total they have probably missed about twelve appointments and at least 50% of the time they have attended they have been unprepared for the job inhand. Very poor aftersales care but then again are they any different to any other home builder?
