Not Just Keepmoat, Government Petition

I thought I would link to a few other non-Keepmoat related complaints. Sadly it’s not just Keepmoat that make a hash of things. Just a few unhappy new build purchasers below.

Petition Government

There is currently a petition to set up a New Homes Ombudsman, there is certainly a need for something to keep housebuilders in check. As it is they can seemly do whatever they like – there is no comeback.

From the email I received from New Home Owners and Snagging Forum (

“The only way the housebuilding industry will change for the better is if enough people sign this petition.

A group of MPs had an Inquiry last year into the quality of new homes. The Inquiry Report made ten recommendations, including the setting up of a New Homes Ombudsman.

The only way to ensure all new homebuyers get better protection, is if enough people sign this petition, forcing a government debate. It is that simple.

Please sign the petition (it will only take a minute) and e mail it to everyone in your address book and share with your Facebook friends and Twitter followers.

Change will only occur if enough people stand up. Todays new home is tomorrows old home.
This issue will affect everyone sooner or later.”

    please note – all the houses at cutlers view [& the other keepmoat sites] have been sold as leasehold. sheffield city council sell the freehold to sheffield housing company. within a year sheffield housing company [keepmoats partner in this venture] sell them off to offshore companies like Adriatic Land 4. the leases are 250 years with expected increases tied to the retail price index. so by the time you’ve paid your mortgage you’re paying more in leasehold fees…
    some of this is development has been funded by regeneration money
    check facebook: national leasehold campaign – it’s a national land grab
