We signed, we didn't get sizes of rooms included. Our solicitor was ok with this, how are you getting on?

We signed, though haven't gotten detailed measurements/room sizes, and they haven't yet signed the contract and returned to our solicitor over a month later. Told initially we'd be in in mid Decemeber, now its the end of Jan/early Feb. EA won't let us get carpet fitters etc in to take measurements, "health and safety reasons" apparently. Has anyone been in touch directly with the builder? Getting fed up with the lack of responses and details from EA, thinking of calling up to the site during the day in the next week to try and talk to builder directly.

We haven't got the contracts signed and returned from them either. We were told March/April initially then the EA mentioned last week May, I'd wonder about that though if you aren't going to be in until Jan/Feb.

What house type have you bought? We've gone for a Belvedere extended. Would be interested in getting the measurements from you when you have them.

Have you been able to make any changes with the builders?

You can find all the measurements in the planning application - open the document called Application and look for your house type.
There might be slight difference (couple of cm here and there) in reality, but then it's recommended when measuring a floor area to allow a 5% waste for grading and cutting so you should be fine.

Thanks, yeah I'd seen the plans, think they are fine are as a general guide but as you've said they're not 100% accurate, would rather get someone in to take proper measurements, especially for carpets (noticed the plans for the non extended Belvedere show-house don't match the actual house very closely, for instance the plans show a back kitchen/utility room that doesn't exist in the actual house)

We bought a mid terrace Belvedere, they wouldn't agree to make any changes I'm afraid. We were looking for them to change the door on the under stairs storage, the small square door makes no sense, wanted to shift it closer to the bathroom and have a bigger door for hanging jackets etc. They said they won't make any modifications as they were already providing far more choice than most new homes (kitchen, tiles, paints etc). I'm not too bothered to be honest as planning on putting in slide out under stairs storage units ourselves.

So have they even finished phase 1 yet? From what I understand there will be over 150 houses and there has only been 20 in phase 1.
Would love to get one of these houses but wont be ready to go for it for another year or two, maybe a phase 2 or 3 will be ready by then, anyone have any idea on time frame for other phases?

Phase 2 was supposed to be available to view end 15 but now looks like end Q1 2016. It seems phase 1 is possibly behind schedule at the moment.

We still didnt sign and waiting for few answers but ours is not to be ready till June but we expect with all the delays it might be longer again.
We were finally allowed to see similar floor plan house as the one we picked had no show house and lots people didnt want to sign for that floor plan without seeing it. We took few measurements when looking at it and now comparing the to the ones from the application they are very very similar.

any news for the people who were to move in mid December? did u get more info? did u get final dates yet?

Hi,

Did you get any indication as to when your house will be ready to move in?

Thanks

Initially we were told Feb/March then the last time I spoke to Sherry Fitz about six weeks ago they said May. I think they have just cleared the ground where our house is going to be, I don't expect it to be ready before July t least. How about you? Have you heard anything?

Ours is to be ready in June. Today the EA said she is meeting the builders tomorrow and will get the dates for the houses and call us back.
I wonder when will the first houses be ready to move in??!

Hi,

I've been trying to contact Sherry Fitzgerald regarding the 2nd phase but they seem to always be busy. Has anyone heard anymore of when phase 2 will be released for sale? Hoping to purchase in this phase but want to ensure we are ready. I was initially told end of 2015, then spring 2016 but by the sounds of it it might be pushed back even further.

They are saying now that they are hoping for late spring for the second phase.

I see people in the first Cul-de-sac have started to move in over the weekend. Looks promising that they aren't too far behind with their initial estimates.

Maybe I'll be in by the summer.
