Before buying real estate

Anyone thinking of buying in any of the Chinese developments, watch these.

The Chinese developments in Cambodia may be similar.

If you buy something built by a Cambodian developer, it may be even worse.

I bought a house off a developer in UK. It also fell apart, cracks, plumbing, electrics all failing. 60% of the whole estate was the same.

That was from a big developer. Persimmon homes.

Bought another new house from Bovis. Same problems.

All house builders are the same the world over!

Interesting videos from 2 yrs ago.

I wonder how much of these building quality issues are unique to China or Asian countries in general?

Is Cambodia likely to be better or worse in this regard?

No one knows. It’s just guess work.

Haha persimmons are a terrible company done work for them numerous times, I wouldn't even buy some of the houses i even built on their sites, cheap horrible materials, site agents who are clueless, only bothered about meeting deadlines with no quality control ImageImage
