Hi All,

Thanks for all the posts to date, informative forum!

Obviously the majority of you have received contracts on your houses, congrats. Just looking through ours and the information appears to be exceptionally bare for what we were expecting.

Could I ask what level of information was included in your own? Particularly regarding drawings /specification?

Thanks in advance!

Hey,

Yes, I felt the detail is ours was quite sparse / generic also. This was my first purchase so have nothing really to compare is to personally... brought this up with my solicitor who told me this was pretty much "par for the course"....

Hi Everyone,

Myself and my partner are looking at buying in Beresford Court. Can someone tell me if this estate requires annual maintenance fees?

Hi folks, just a quick update for those who have bought on Beresford Court.

I was speaking to Aidan yesterday and he said that snagging will likely start in 4-5 weeks.

PS FWIW my solicitor also said the detail-light contract was standard fare.

Hi Jay,

Just to add, I am also moving into Beresford Court but to the houses on the left side of the court as you enter. Aidan confirmed to me last week that it would be end of April for completion so I assume snagged around the same time. Not an issue for us but just flagging as there are a number of houses on the Court at various stages of completion and as such will have varying timelines.

Looking forward to meeting everyone eventually! 🙂

Regards,
Eoin

Hey,

Does anybody know what the choices for paint colour are? Has anybody moving to the Court heard anything in relation to paint colour or tiles yet?

From speaking to people in the Crescent there is no choice of paint or tiles in this phase.

Hi Folks,

Does anyone have an update on the proposed Apartment Block within the Beresford Development?
Will it be private or social ? Will it actually be built?

The apartment block is in planning permission but like everything in planning permission it is unclear as to how much will be social. In Ireland, the developer can keep his arrangements for social housing private and with the council.

What a lot of the developers are doing is selling all their private houses first and then once sold they leg it and then you'll find out the social arrangements because if they told you for example, that someone living in a 4 bed opposite you was social are you still as likely to but your 3 bed and pay 2K a month for your 3 bed for 25 years?

Aidan had mentioned all part V was in the apartments. But as mentioned above it doesn't have to be declared in the planning so nothing concrete.

Thanks for all the info on this page, it's so helpful!!

I'm hoping to buy here but saw there is a chance the apartments will all be social housing in the last post. Is this correct? I thought social housing was to be spread out across the estate?
Thanks
