    I worked for them 20 years ago. They bought out Cussins homes then put everyone on their notice, all of us plasterers took their offer and got a nice lumper then started for the contractors they used.

    I disliked them as a company but they were as good as any other at building houses so you should be ok buying from them. Are they including the Freehold Janey?

    Good luck with the purchase.

    It’s an apartment so they can’t do freehold, but there is no ground rent and the freehold is for 999 years. I’m not sure I’ll be around when it expires :emoticon-0102-bigsm
    I had a look at the show home, not quite completed and looks to be a decent spec.
    Ive been looking since March and had all the questions I wanted answered today, so now I’m just mega excited, but good to know they are decent at building houses, so thank you x

    Thank you, it does, I know there was cynicism on SMB about it, that’s not a criticism of SMB, I shared some of it, but I don’t now x

    They’ll have forgotten and the post will be condemned to the history books by the time I move in :emoticon-0102-bigsm

    I did like getting a DH postcode. In fact that’s the first thing I said to me mam when I rang after signing up, I’ve got a DH postcode :1980_boogie_down:

    Nice 1 and good luck but as stated earlier might pay to hide the full address. Spirit was being polite when he said "dodgy characters" <laugh>.

    That's the site we were at when the takeover happened, we got bladdered on the Friday and back on the Monday for a contractor. I plastered about 50 of the Cussins houses and one for Miller homes then got work elsewhere. We couldn't stay on the Miller site, we were given price targets 35% less than when working direct to Cussins.
    If you got one of the houses I plastered I hope all is well and nowt fell off.
