We care about you
At Oakmere Homes we take our Customer Care and Customer Satisfaction very seriously. We wholly embrace the Consumer Code for Homebuilders and are fully committed to continuing our great levels of service.
Outlined below are the details of the Code. Please follow the links to print a copy of the document or contact us to be sent a copy by one of our team.
As a result of the Barker Review of 2004 and the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) Market Study into the house building industry dated October 2008, a group of stakeholders within the industry joined forces to develop a voluntary Code of Conduct for home builders to address the issues raised relating to customer service and satisfaction.
Home Builders may adopt the standards of good practice, procedures and information, as detailed in the guidance against each core requirement. Where a Home Builder decides to adopt a different approach to satisfy the core requirement, they must provide the similar level of information and achieve a comparable outcome to the same level as detailed in the guidance notes.
The Home Warranty providers have agreed to require all their registered builders to adopt and comply with the Code as a condition of their registration.
Where a Home Builder is found to be in serious breach of the Code, Home Warranty Bodies can apply a range of sanctions, including removal from the relevant Home Warranty Body's register and exclusion from all registers run by other Home Warranty Bodies who participate in the Code scheme.
As a local company we have a strong belief in supporting local communities.

Advanced insulation and energy efficiency is built into the very fabric of every Oakmere development. The homes at Riverside View also benefited from a new 90% efficient combination boiler, dual flush toilets and 'A' rated kitchen appliances, making the homes sustainable for both the environment and lifestyle.
Each home boasts contemporary interiors, front and rear gardens and private parking. Oakmere Homes offer the very best of modern dwelling with more than a touch of tradition in the stone effect frontages. With one, two and three bedrooms and kitchen diners, at Riverside View there was an Oakmere Home for everyone.
A superb development of stylish new build homes where eye-catching features and innovative designs combine with a fabulous location, just minutes from Preston and Garstang.
The award-winning quality which is the hallmark of an Oakmere Home was evident in every one of these executive properties with Designer kitchens and high specification appliances with careful detailing creating instant appeal for young professionals and growing families.
The Meadows is within easy walking distance of village amenities, including the village playgroup and a highly praised academy school. Located conveniently for cities and the best of Lancashire’s scenic beauty, The Meadows offered the perfect location to raise a family.

At Elements our buyers got the best of both worlds and naturally, an incredible specification, which included a SieMatic kitchen with Neff cooking appliances, coming as standard.
The exceptional location has proven perfect for enjoying everything Mother Nature has created in this beautiful part of the world. Yet it's also close to great schools and fabulous amenities, and within a short drive of the major towns and cities of the North West.
Borrage Hall is situated in the ancient cathedral city of Ripon, in a prime location near the River Skell.
Oakmere Homes kept the style and character of the original building in its reconstruction of nine luxury apartments and two delightful bungalows.
Set in beautiful grounds that have matured over centuries and with privacy ensured by security gates this development has provided the opportunity to live in one of the best locations that Ripon has to offer.
Each of the stylish apartments was appointed to a high standard and included two bedrooms, one with en-suite shower room.
Go through the gateway and along the imposing drive of Eccleston Park Golf Club, on the fringes of Rainhill, and there, in the heart of the course, you will find 18 luxury homes that were developed by Oakmere Homes.
Eccleston Park Golf Club was created from the home farm formerly attached to Rainhill Hospital and we sympathetically converted the beautiful brick farm buildings into highly original homes.
Like many endowed hospital buildings, only the best materials were used in the original construction. With this in mind Oakmere Homes decided to ensure that the products chosen to bring the buildings into the 21st Century were amongst the best available.

Janette Borodin, The Oaks, Longtown
"The team at Oakmere were so accommodating and so helpful in progressing the purchase of the bungalow. They treated me like an individual with a very personal approach, rather than just another customer - nothing was too much trouble. I had already sold my own home and they really went the extra mile to get me moved into the bungalow"
"I love the modern bathroom and fitted kitchen, and the bungalow offers a very good standard of finish both inside and outside - it has real kerb appeal, right down to the block-paved drive. As soon as I moved in - it just felt like home"
Dave and Kate Dickinson, Riverside View, Kendal
"Thank you so much for the super contact Oakmere have provided and the wonderful plumbers who have been to solve the problem. We really do appreciate the wonderful after care"
Derek Brookfield, The Orchards, Bolton Le Sands
"Thank you so much for helping with my house purchase and move"
"It has been a lovely experience and made better by your patience and consideration"
Graham and Sophie Lumsden, The Orchards, Bolton Le Sands
"We would like to thank you for all your help, time, advise, and patience over the past few months. It feels like our lovely new home wouldn't have been possible without you"
Thomas and Jess Proctor, The Orchards, Bolton Le Sands
"We definitely wanted 3 bedrooms and a new home was our preferred choice. The modern specification in terms of energy efficiency and the 10 year NHBC guarantee should make it low maintenance"
"We were also very impressed with the detailing of the home - nice little touches in the design - and particularly the high quality of the fitted SieMatic kitchen"
"Moving in was absolutely trouble free and any minor issues we have come across since then have quickly been sorted by Oakmere and their site representative Janet, who really stays on top of things"
Helen Elliott, The Oaks, Longtown
"The Oaks development itself is lovely and so are the people there. I surprised myself by buying a bungalow; I always thought they were for old people who had trouble getting about, but it is wonderfully practical with all the advantages of an apartment, except that you have a private garden and drive, and of course you don’t have anyone living above or below you."
"I have been very impressed with the quality of the build and the thoughtful touches, like a hard-wired doorbell, exterior lights, external water tap, soft closing cupboard doors and the general high quality of the kitchen. But most of all I have been impressed with how easy Oakmere were to deal with on the part exchange and the move – they just made it all happen.”
Andrew and Wendy Wilkinson, The Oaks, Longtown
"The build quality is excellent with high levels of insulation to keep down heating bills, and The Oaks is in a good location for us – easy to get onto the motorway or into Carlisle for work. It is very quiet and we get on with the neighbours – so it has all worked out very well.”
David and Ingrid Young, The Oaks, Longtown
"The bungalow at The Oaks suits our needs perfectly. Because it is brand new there are no worries about maintenance or repairs; whenever you buy an older house you generally find something needs doing or replacing, whether it is electrical wiring or a new boiler, but the fact that it is brand new with a 10 year NHBC guarantee removes all that worry."
"We wanted a bungalow where we could enjoy our retirement and now we have one – perfect.”
Peter Goode, The Oaks, Longtown
"The Oaks is just a few yards away from where I used to live and I knew they were building houses but I didn't realise they also built bungalows. Oakmere bought my existing home which left me free to move into the new bungalow."
"It is brilliant having everything on one level; when I was travelling up and down the country I always used to sleep in the lorry cab so I didn't have much experience of posh hotels but that first night in the bungalow I thought ‘this is what it must be like'.”
