Croydon is a vibrant area with shops, restaurants, green spaces and bars right on your doorstep, and it’s a perfect location for commuting to Victoria or London Bridge. Leon House is in the restaurant quarter of Croydon where you will find every type of cuisine you can think of, as well as upmarket cocktail bars and restaurants. Things can get a bit rowdy at the weekends but unless you’re on the lower floors it’s not particularly noisy. The only problem with the area is there are opportunists tailgating people into the building and car park, so despite the assumed security of the building, this is enabling them easy access.

Please review your development:
Leon House is beautiful and it feels like living in a hotel. The reception area is plush and well kept and enables hot desking as well as just chilling out. The roof garden is spacious and relaxing. There is also a meeting room you can book so the building is very much a work, rest and play development. The concierges are always really helpful and give the building a personal touch, and it’s really convenient to have parcels delivered downstairs so you don’t have to worry about being in. The one disappointment in the development is the carpets in the communal corridots. They are a pale grey which was a poor choice, and they are extremely damaged due to continuous building works going on, with lots of ladder marks. Unfortunately some residents / guests have also vomited in communal areas, including at the roof garden entance, and these stains will never come off. What was not acceptable was an extremely steep charge for carpet cleaning which was carried out with sub-standard machinery and made absolutely no difference. The carpets need to be replaced with darker hard’-wearing material and builders should be told to put sheets down before working in communal areas. The building management and property management has been the most disappointing aspect and it can take weeks to receive a response, or no response at all.
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
Unfortunately I moved from my previous location because of anti-social neighbours. Even in a new build in expensive houses with a more affluent demographic, some neighbours show no regard for others and expect people to clean up after them. I also wish I had known that the Westfield development would be shelved, as it is worrying to see the high street going downhill.
How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:
I have had very little response and it feels like they treat the residents as entitled and an inconvenience. I do not even really know who I am supposed to contact as there are so many parties involved.
