Traditionally, neighbours Chiswick and Ealing dominated the spotlight when it came to West London. But thanks to a burgeoning property scene, plentiful parks and stellar transport links, Acton is finally stepping out of the shadows. Where are the best places to live in Acton?

Please review your development:
The flats themselves are great. Clean, relatively new, spacious, and everything inside works. L&Q management makes it a not great experience. the rent agreement process is a faff, they are near impossible to get a hold of, our property manager ignores our emails. For the 1750 we pay a month for a 2-bed I think we’ll find something just as nice in either a better manager building or a more central location. It’s a pity because I do like the flat, but it doesn’t feel like value for money.
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
Management will milk every penny from you that they can, especially when you leave.
How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:
They have barely responded. It takes 3 emails to get a response and usually that reply is “I am not your property manager anymore, contact this person instead”. We’ve had 3 managers in a year and none of them announced when they left/started.
