Barratt`s Worthless Homes

Recommended Posts

Lived in Stratford for many years as a child and young person. Lots of these contaminated sites have now been built on, how many more will find their homes are worthless.

Worthless 200k homes

My first property purchase as an FTB, in 1975, was a Barratt house.

It was a 3 bed detached house (FTBs please note - prices were sensible back then) and I can only describe it as the most shocking example of shoddy workmanship imaginable; internal walls like a dog's hind leg, cheap poorly fitting windows, doors that would not close, paper thin flooring and an overall finish that was simply appalling.

I was greatly relieved to unload it two years later.
