We have bought 2 George wimpy homes within the last 3 years, we bought a 3 bed semi which we lived in for 8 months then sold, to buy a 4 bed semi in a culdi sac further up the street, all the "site agent" was interested in was us completing his customer survey form within days of moving in so he could achieve his bonus, the man is a disgrace to the building trade, he lies about EVERYTHING, we have had issues with our boiler, plumbing, rear French doors not fitted properly, no guttering fitted to rear bay windows causing severe damage to finished brickwork from rain running off the roof, paintwork yellowing within weeks of moving in, fizzy juice bottles left ...

We purchased our Taylor Wimpey (Glastonbury) home in February when they were only foundations. We moved in August. The solicitors they recommended where typical west country, laid back and slow, however, our purchase was not delayed. I do recommend you get a different solicitor when you 'sell' your old home (would be cheaper) ... as we only got discount when we 'purchased'. Can I say, that we have had minor problems ... nothing to do with the build quality or finish, as I write our house is still in one piece! We had a few teething problems, as expected such as wonky bathroom tiles! Easily rectified. Once we had moved in, any ... Read the complete review

Bought our house, in 2006, after a LOT of consideration and re-assurance from Wimpey sales staff. Once in our house (and after the 28 day snagging list period) Wimpey were not interested in any of our concerns. Ill fitting windows, door mechanisms breaking, faulty bathroom taps causing flooding downstairs, ill fitting doors and most recently large gaps between the floor and the skirting boards and large cracks in the walls. What Wimpey re-assured us about was the path they were putting next to our house, they basically fairytaled what the use of it would be. The path is causing residents many problems with youth disorder. If I could have seen into the future I would have NEVER bought our Wimpey house. Untruths, uncaring and unbelievably uniterested in helping us.

I bought my 2nd Wimpey home just over 2 years ago - the first house was great - this one has now had 4 leaks the last being nearly 6 months ago which caused extensive damage to kitchen floor, cloakroom, hallways and everything in the understairs cupboard was flooded. Although water was flooding down the walls not check was made of the electrics until 3 weeks later! The repair work has not been good and had to report them to NHBC twice but they are almost useless. Now I am trying to get monies back on all items lost and just getting a run around from Taylor Wimpey and their insurers. The plumbers they used are now liquidated - not surprised as not one house on estate that I know of that does not have or had a leak!Can someone help me to get monies back

hi folks, im writing this cos im at the end of my tether and need to tell someone about Mr winpy homes. The home itself is lovely, you get a few problems weve had the usual, Boiler breaks down regually- heating up the duff- Waters leaks- thermo stat not working, Doors and plastics warped, sky sockets installed wrong, spotlight wires fused together, Scuffed marks everywhere. Now my issuse is with the Wimpy Cust. Service, they have none its crap. So when u get things that break down or need sorting, You find you hear evey excuse under the sun. But remember mostly u have 1 yr to get the little fixtures sorted. well its been 7months for us and still havent fixed all ours. Trust me do urself a favor, try BARRETTS homes or something. George Wimpy is shocking, so much more aggro than its worth.
