We were told our house would be ready in May and were then told it could be April. Has anyone else been told anything different?

Also if it is anything like CD, I'd take the BER scores with a grain of salt

Any issue with the BER rating in Cuil Duin? Same Developer is building Parklands as well and the housing concept seems very similar.

Is this something we need to get independently assessed or will the developers just slap an A2 on all of them?

We are considering a 3 bed 2 story type 3 house but there are none actually on view. Has anyone seen one of these? If we put our booking deposit down can we get it back if we see it and aren't happy with it? It is defo only 1 parking spare per house? Won't work for us if it is. Tia

It was mentioned to me today that the houses will be handed over in July 2020.

Suprisingly H&M mentioned all house types irrespective of no of beds have only 1 allocated parking space, rest of the parking spaces will be marked for visitors.

If you stay too long in the visitor spots there can be trouble. Also there is a risk of clamping.

Yes the 5k deposit is fully refundable up to the date that contracts are signed.

If you've engaged solicitors in this timeframe and then cancel they'd still expect to be paid.

Hi,

We booked house type 3 and were told they should hopefully be available to view next month.
We were told they will get all house type 3 buyers in to see a type 3 house as soon as they can.
This was sent to us via email on Monday.
There is a show house similar to the house type 3 but without the family room at the back.
By show house I mean, it’s totally empty no furniture etc.
We’ve viewed this and are hoping the type 3 is pretty similar.

Just take these dates with a pinch of salt - in Cuil Duin (same estate agent & builders) - the waiting times were well over a year AFTER the month they were initially told. Just for planning on moving etc - wait until you get a snag date & even then, I know for some it still took a few months after this to get the keys.
Think the issue was mainly with legal stuff & water or electricity connections.

Only if there is a management company who hires them in housing estates it doesn't happen

I’ve never heard of clamping in a private housing estate before. Once there are no double yellow lines it’s fine to park there. Unless the law has changed?

Most housing estates are being setup with Management companies as per planning, the council won't be taking these over and too get payment MC's can use clamping.

Hi there, does this house you mentioned have the kitchen to the back?
