Hi All,

Thanks for all the helpful info to date.. Waiting on show house date so that we can go and have a look.. Really hoping to buy as they look really nice, drove out there a couple of weeks ago to get a feel for Kilcock and we were both very impressed, seems like a lovely place to bring up kids

We got our Valuation done last week and the valuation report told us it would be September when our house would be ready! Although they didnt have access to the site thats what a builder on site told them.

I was prepared that these new builds, the dates can be pushed out but i didn't think it would be as late as September!! Any one else been told September for the 3 bed house on The Rise? The report also told us that so far 9 houses have gone sale agreed I thought for sure our houses would be ready first....

Our valuation report stated June or July, this has been pretty consistent over the last months. We are in one of the 4 beds on the rise. Fingers crossed we get in sooner.

Hi all. We're hoping to take a look at these when they launch on May 10th. Do you think there will be a camping out overnight situation?

Most people posting here at the moment bought off the plans so there was none of that madness.

I can't see that being the case but who knows in these strange times. I didn't see anything like that happen for millerstown which is like 5 mins away.

If it was Dublin I'd expect people to queue overnight but it's not. Also Millerstown was very civilised and it's going to be a huge estate anyway, plenty houses to choose from imo

Btw has anyone found out or asked about Part V?

Part V Social Housing, I assume it's going to be 10% of development. Curious to know if it's going to be concentrated in one place or spread across the development.

Yeah 50 or so houses. Usually the last phase going by previous developments I bought in. The builder said he hadn't decided yet when my solicitor raised the question. Usually they keep them away from the show houses etc.

Thanks for that. Good to know. So please excuse this stupid question. But if we were planning on buying off the plans whats the step by step? Do you contact the Estate agent and put booking deposit on there and then? just wondering why did people buy off plans and not wait for show houses?

Just contact the estate agents directly. They will organise everything with you.

I suppose I wanted to be closer to Maynooth as it's my hometown so wanted to get the house sorted asap plus only small numbers of houses were being released.

Had a deposit on millerstown 4 bed semi d but the flooding put me off.

We bought off the plans for various reasons; We wanted to get into a house before year end to avail of the HTB and Kilcock has always been a nice area to me, its very close to my hometown. We were told by several others to avoid millerstown due to flooding issues. Ledwill came on the market then, So we visited several other Glenveagh developments and we were more than happy with their finishes, over all size of the houses etc. We also heard that once a development launches the prices for other phases could possibly go up due to demand, but I'm not 100% sure about that could be just people speculating? We also wanted to get into the house asap and it seemed like a smart option to buy off the plans to ensure our house would be ready in the first batch released.

We were a bit like Mur223 we wanted to get in on help to buy this year, Ledwill was in our price point close to family, on the train line and we liked the Glenveagh houses / finishes. We went for off the plans cause we were told it was a special price and would be going up at launch and we wanted to be in ASAP.
