Quality from Start to Finish

It is Wickford Development's aim to provide the highest of standards both in materials
and workmanship at every stage of construction and fitting.

No 'Off Plan Sales'

All our customers see the finished product. Why is this? Wickford Development wish for potential customers to see the new home they want to reserve from day one when they view the completed home.

Unlike national house builders which often concentrate sale completions usually in June and December, Wickford deliver houses to a constant programme.

This helps ensure the quality of the build and eases any time pressures or constraints on the tradesmen constructing the house. With over 50 years experience Wickford have found this minimises post occupancy snagging issues.

No hidden extras

The customer views and reserves their completed home before exchange of contracts. There are no hidden extras within the sale price.

Our homes come with fitted carpets, tiled floor surfaces, tiled wall surfaces, quality kitchen appliances, turfed gardens and a patio area, blinds and window dressings to some/all windows.

Please view our home specification to see the extensive list of features to expect from a Wickford Home.

Quality from start to finish

This is the tenet of Wickford Development Company Ltd who have been building homes for over 50 years.

Our attention to detail and quality has been recognised by the NHBC on a regional and national level numerous times. In 2020, 2021, 2022 and 2023 Woodlands Meadow Wickford were awarded the prestigious NHBC Supreme Winners for the Pride in the Job best site in the UK.

Attention to detail

Those who view our homes will no doubt appreciate the attention to detail that Wickford, EJ Taylor our Principal Contractor and the professional tradesmen who have worked on the property have invested in constructing the home for sale.

Sometimes it really is the small things that illustrate the care that has been taken. Initially you may walk past this without noticing, but if you stop to take a careful look you may then appreciate how these small details reflect the overall care and quality you can expect from a Wickford home.

Freehold Properties

All the homes that Wickford Development Co Ltd have ever sold are Freehold, Wickford see the sale of homes whether they are houses or apartments by Leasehold as unethical and as such does not align with Wickford’s core values of building quality homes that with or without financial assistance belongs fully to the purchaser, the land and the building.

We give all our purchasers an undertaking that Wickford would never allow a Leasehold Agreement (even where they are an absolute necessity e.g: Apartment and/or block management) to be financially detrimental or penalise the purchaser. We would encourage and assist those communities to take ownership of their Freehold.

Wickford are extremely proud of their record and we do not need legislation to adopt this stance unlike some other developers.

No reservation fee

Wickford Development Company Ltd do not request a holding fee to reserve one of their homes.

All we ask is that prospective purchasers are in a realistic position to be able to exchange contracts within 4 working weeks from the date of reservation.

Malcolm Danford & Co our Managing Agent will ensure assistance is provided in being able to meet the 4 week exchange period.
