Bellway awarded highest rating by HBF

Bellway has been awarded five-star status by the Home Builders Federation, confirming the developer’s place among the country’s elite house-builders.

The award is the highest accolade a new homes developer can receive. HBF ratings are based on feedback from customers in the weeks after they move into their new home. Only a small handful of housebuilders achieved five-star status this year.

Bellway Chief Executive Ted Ayres attributed the success to a ‘culture of customer care’ within the business.

He said: “The customer sits at the heart of our business. Every department, from land purchase, through to design, construction, sales and aftercare, is fully aware of their role in the journey which our customers embark on when they purchase a Bellway home.

“Five-star service is part of our culture and we are continually striving to improve.”

More than nine out of ten customers said they would recommend Bellway to a friend last year. Bellway achieved 8,721 sales completions in its financial year ending in July 2016, whilst maintaining a focus on quality, with 43 of the Group’s site managers awarded NHBC Pride in the Job Awards.

Second Step to Your Home for Life at Kingley Grange

Home owners looking to take their second step on the property ladder have seen affordability improve in the past twelve months due to higher equity levels, according to the latest Lloyds TSB Homemovers Review. Increased optimism in the market is spurring many potential buyers to seriously consider their next rung on the ladder. For those looking to take that step up from their first property, Bellway Homes are offering a selection of comfortable family houses at Kingley Grange in Rayleigh, Essex perfect for those who are seeking good value and a great location.

Karen Coulson, sales director of Bellway Homes Essex comments: “The spacious houses at Kingley Grange are proving popular with those seeking to move up the property ladder, for example couples with growing families who are moving out of London to get more for their money. We are finding that many second steppers are now moving from that two bedroom city apartment straight up to a four or five bedroom home that they can see themselves living in for the long term without an interim move, to save on the costs of moving.”

Bellway calls for final push to support toy appeal

People in Dudley are being urged to get behind a final push to boost a Christmas toy appeal.

Bellway is accepting donations for the Dudley CVS Operation Santa appeal at its St James Mews development in Salop Street.
The deadline for donations is Monday (December 9) so there is still time to buy an extra toy for a deserving local child.

Bellway Sales Manager Marie Richards said: “We are proud to be supporting the Operation Santa toy appeal.
“As well as donating toys, we are encouraging the community to get involved and buy an extra present. Even a selection box could make Christmas more special to a child who might not receive many presents.”

Sister Act gets Rothwell twins on the property ladder

Having struggled to get their feet on the property ladder as individuals, twin sisters Elizabeth and Loren Kitchen combined their resources to buy an apartment on Bellway’s Fenton Park development in Middleton, Leeds.

Like thousands of other young people, the sisters, 24, wanted to buy their own homes, but simply couldn’t raise enough money for a deposit.

Loren, who works as a reservations agent at Nexus Rental in Pudsey, said: “We quickly realised that neither of us had any chance of buying a house alone, but together we would do just fine – and thankfully we’ve always been really close.Together Elizabeth and Loren were able to purchase a spacious two double bedroom en-suite apartment and their combined deposit meant that their mortgage payments are now lower than most would pay in rent for a similar property.

Belverdere Park Tempting Buyers to Cross the River for a Great Home

Bellway Homes’ Belvedere Park scheme is offering first time buyers a wonderful opportunity to buy a beautiful new home, join a new community and enjoy the great open spaces and local nature reserve.

Belvedere Park tempted first time buyer Damian Fichardo and his family to move south of the river and they were both pleased and surprised to discover an established and friendly community.  Damian, his wife Karolina and young daughters Nicola and Marika recently welcomed London Mayor Boris Johnson into their home and explained to him how First Buy, through the Mayor’s ‘First Steps’ scheme has enabled them to buy their first home.

Speaking about buying at Belvedere Park, Damian commented “Before we moved we had been living in Haringey and Watford in affordable rental properties but really wanted to buy our own home.  I work for Transport for London but neither my wife nor I qualified for key worker or local resident assistance schemes.  We were delighted when we learned that we could apply to buy a home using First Buy and began to look for a suitable property.
