“I have just purchased a lovely one-bedroom house in the Norwood area of South East London. The property is wonderful and a testament to Clarendon Homes in terms of the attention to detail and the high level of spec incorporated along with the materials/appliances used. In a high demand area such as London it is refreshing to see a developer make an effort to create something special rather than employing quick and cheap build standards. Many new build properties are simply built with an expectancy to sell based on their proximity to Central London. Furthermore, the cooperation and assistance provided both pre- and post-sale by Clarendon Homes was far above and beyond my expectations. I personally dealt with both Gareth and Alecia during the purchasing process and both were always quick to answer any questions as well as offering advice along the way. Of particular note was Alecia’s attitude on the day of completion. The completion didn’t take place until late in the day causing a quite stressful situation with a removal company having already been booked for the following morning. Not only did Alecia do everything in her power to help me but her genuine concern for the situation was very evident to the point of her asking me to keep her informed of proceedings no matter how late in the day. I cannot recommend Clarendon Homes enough and I am truly thankful for the amazing attitude throughout from their wonderful staff.”
“Really pleased with the Clarendon Homes service; very professional and helpful team who were able to deal with all my queries. We moved to our beautiful new house in January 2020 and not only were surprised with the lovely welcoming pack on our arrival day but how beautiful our house was. We feel secure and safe in our new home and despite the current pandemic we have been lucky enough to accommodate ourselves well into our house and so have our new neighbours."
