lesson learnt the hard way
by: Vaughan Williams

i am so glad that AD have gone into liquidation. they saw me and everyone else as easy money. Over inflated stage payments. Although i in a way was lucky enough that i only got to Frame stage with them, that was enough. My new builder stated that if i did complete the build through AD, that i would have claims of cracking walls and dropped roof within 2 years. i believe AD never had the intention to finish my house.
I feel sorry for the people that have lost a lot of money and are unable to continue their build.
i really wish i did my home work on these pricks before i signed the bottom line.

AD Nightmare
by: Steve

So sorry to hear your troubles with AD are still ongoing :(

They are the worst company and deserve to be out of business!

Speaking of which a friend of a friend is also building with them and before Christmas they took payment of the next stage and bailed. Apparently AD is out of money though I don’t know if this is true or not but it certainly wouldn’t surprise me.

The nightmare continues
by: Spotted

Hi Steve,
It's worse now. They put a bogus hold on the build and its now been over 7 months since the carpenters left.

After a long period where they 1) withheld the information I needed before I could sign, 2) would not answer my phone calls and ignored my emails, the information finally arrived in Feb. I signed the finishes & variation 2 immediately.

Suddenly, the construction manager turned up unannounced late Feb.
He looked at all the unfinished work and said cheerily that they were going to send a plumber, carpenter and roofer to finish the outside of the house & do the pre-plastering. And that he'd get a painter in to complete the outside "before winter set in". That was 2 months ago! He said it would take him 3 weeks to go through the plans in detail. He suggested that I choose my paint colours.

Interior paint selections too despite there being no interior walls yet!

My hopes rose. Big mistake. ...

Hey Spotted
by: Steve

Sorry to hear about that Spotted :( All I can say is I feel your pain. I tried everything, they are bloody useless. Not much you can do other than keep trying to give them a hard time.

Construction manager nightmares
by: Spotted

Very interesting. I am dealing with the same construction manager. He is a nightmare. A bully and makes me feel I am dealing with a thug. The designs are great. The carpenters for my house were excellent but as soon as I paid for lock up the politics and threats to "hold" construction began. Emails not answered properly, and finishes sheet still waiting clarification.
I'm awake at 3 am wondering what is going on.
