Two local shops
Two Local GPs
Two Local Schools
Local Park is nice
Good Transport links train tube & bus
Parking terrible.. Residential Parking lacking disabled bays and traffic wardens that hide behind walls
Bin Collections LOUD we have Pods in the floor that tend to get over filled and not emptied leaving crap all over the floors and on the pavements heading into the park and grassed areas
ASB loads of it from not only bad double glazing but bad uninsulated buildings.. can hear traffic passing my house from y lounge which is 30-40ft away from my front door. Also the Constant banging from the neighbours communal door slamming all day EVERYDAY & the buzzer on it being to loud it wakes you if your windows are EVER open not to mention cars parking with exhausts outside your windows
Ruined the estate by getting rid of trees green spaces playgrounds to replace it with one small park
it’s also big on Gun & knife Crime.. before moving here Google Myatts Field North.. Calling it oval Quarters Doesn’t change it’s history
Please review your development:
The design of these buildings are terrible and badly thought out
Front Doors hung on the wrong side meaning as soon as you enter the home there is an obstacle course of hiding behind the door to allow people in where you can’t see them or if anyone is behind them or backing down the 30ft hallway then getting them to either close the door themselves or shuffle down the hallway then shuffle back up to close the door after them . Also large Glass by Front door gives Burglars a better view of you 30ft before you get to the door very BAD for Security…… & CCTV Never Works
Staff don’t help they allow ASB to continue rather than ACCEPT their Building are FLAWED so blame tenants rather than FIX the Issues..
Before you Buy TRY… Do an Air BnB rent a room for a night a hear/see for yourself.. Buyers BEWARE
. Kitchen far to small for visitors and space for only a Fridge Freezer.. NO under Counter Space for Washer Driers Dish Washer..
Cupboard in Hallway for Washing Machine that means you can’t store any washing near the machine dues to it then blocking the hallway making access to your front door or bathroom hard.
The walls rattle when people upstairs walk jump skip across there up stairs maisonette
you can from 2 floors down hear the stairs the floors from upstairs
In my Living Room I can hear my neighbours toilet flushing
bath emptying at all hours of the day it’s AWFUL (they don’t always wash their hands)
Garden fences to small so you HAVE to see neighbours
Echo’s from Buildings is awful
No real storage space. there are 2 in hallways but one has Washing machine in and the other a Freezer as no space in the kitchens that are badly built
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
The lack of sound Proof/ Insulation in the buildings.. and how the landlords don’t care
How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:
they have ignore daily noise records for 3 years and constantly ignored disabled families struggling to live in their badly built buildings blaming tenants and causing more stress and suicide attempts
