“You, Me & George”

Poor Base Specification - Options Could be Better

The concept of reviewing things is a sound one, tell people your thoughts (good or bad) about products or services you use or buy - anything from a tea bag to a hotel room. Well, this time I'm returning to Ciao to write a review of our most expensive ever purchase. I'm talking brick and motor...

An NHBC Backed house

Trust me you will need it!

As with other people who are writing reviews about George Wimpey, it is my bad experience that is motivating me to write, but I am going to try and be as positive as I can. After my ex destroyed my last house, it left me with a worry that I could move into someone else’s disaster zone, this is...

Well I've finally got round to finding the time to write up my review of George Wimpey homes as the follow up to my Miller homes review (http://www.ciao.co.uk/MillerHomesReview5782302). I'll keep exactly the same layout as the Miller home review to ensure a fair review of each against the same...

My husband and I are just buying a Wimpey home, but so far have been plagued by obstacles at each turn. We planned to sell our 3 bed end terranced house, but Wimpey offered us a ridiculously low price for their Assisted Movers Scheme, which wouldn't even over our outstanding mortgage of 60%LTV...

“Poor build quality”

published 06/05/2005

Great location, lovely apartment, easy move.

Appalling attention to detail and aftersales care.

Sales Staff at showhome at showhome ranged from incompetent to excellent. I quickly learnt who to deal with! Managed to snag the flat I wanted after another buyer dropped out and the sales staff called to let me know. Part exchange was given on my old house and solicitors fees paid. No problems...

“seasoned purchaser”

not usually much of a discount

Moved into first Wimpey home (£2000) in 1961 curtesy of my parents. I think they were the first national builder whose prices came within the range of ordinary working class people. They still live in that house -with no problems so Wimpey can't be all that bad! I bought a Wimpey semi, with my...

“George Wimpey Homes”

published 08/06/2009

Modern, affordable homes

No end of niggles....

I checked out my local George Wimpey development after being fed up of having very little space in our previous home. The show homes looked fab - they were very modern compared to all the other developer's & prices were much lower than simialr sized homes on nearby developments. We chose a 3...

“House on verge of collapse!”

published 20/08/2007

There are not any that I can think off!

Misrepresentation, no after care

We purchased our George Wimpey Home and moved in at the end of February 2006 (it is August 2007 at time of writing this). Would we buy another Gge Wimpey home? Not in this life time. We purchased our home, which was to have a small ASDA (the size of a tesco express) opposite (as told by the sales...

signed up to buy wimpey home off plan, I WOULD LIKE SOME FEED BACK ON WIMPEY CONSERVATORIES. WE HAVE SEEN ONE BUT NOT TOO IMPRESSED WITH THE FINISH. WE WOULD BE VERY GRATEFUL TO HEAR OF ANYONES THOUGHTS ON THIS. THANK YOU. SO FAR OUR GEORGE WIMPEY EXPERIENCE HAS BEEN A GOOD ONE, ALTHOUGH OFF COURSE WE ARE NOT EVEN MOVED OUT OF OUR OLD HOME. THE HELP WITH SELLING OUR HOUSE HAS BEEN GOOD WE HAD 15 VIEWINGS IN 10 DAYS WHICH WAS VERY TIRESOME BUT IT AMOUNTED TO AN OFFER JUST £2000 UNDER THE ASKING PRICE. WE NOW WONDER IF OUR HOUSE WAS UNDER PRICED OR IF THE RIGHT PERSON CAME ALONG AT THE RIGHT TIME! I WILL KEEP YOU POSTED AS TO THE NEXT STAGE. INCIDENTALLY WE ARE ON ASSISTED MOVE WITH GEORGE WIMPEY.

We purchased our home in Sep 06. Our solicitor told us that Wimpey had received the funds so we could go and collect our keys from the Sales Office. The sales assistant said she hadn't received a call so we wouldn't give us the keys. We asked her to call her head office and she refused because she said she wasn't allowed to call them. So we told her we would phone, but again she refused. After 20 mins of us persisting, she called her head office and was told that Wimpey had received the funds 3hrs previous and they had called and left her a voicemail message to advise her. That was just the start of our problems.

“George Wimpey New Home”

published 01/12/2008

Good aftersales service.

Gas supply could have gone smoother

After 6 months in my new George Wimpey home I can't recommend them highly enough. We moved in at the end of May 2008 and got a really good deal with lots thrown in, lights, curtains etc... There have been teething problems with the new house, which I have to say you will probably get with all new...
