New Cross is a nice enough area.
It’s lively due to all the Goldsmiths students.
The Deptford Green School children however run riot around the neighborhood and dump masses of litter everywhere.
Please review your development:
Culloden, Hampton, Blenheim tower and the other block are all managed by Realstar Living (7a Howick Place, London SW1P 1DZ), who just renamed themselves ‘Uncle’ and removed all the bad reviews from Googlemaps.
You have to buy the heating and hot water from them and they charged over £150 / month, even in summer. Even mains water cost us typically 3 time more than we’ve paid before or since. I don’t think Realstar pay tax in the UK so they make you pay the rent to their account in the tax haven Jersey. They try to con you over the deposit. They don’t do a handover with you when you leave and invent all these problems afterwards. We arranged to have it professionally cleaned before we left but they claimed it wasn’t clean enough. That’s because they paint all the properties after 1 year between tenants and they want to charge you for the cleaner that comes after the decorator. In the property industry Realstar have such a bad reputation that other companies avoid working with them.
I now live near Waterloo in zone 1 for a fraction of the cost. Much nicer place. No stressing about the bills or the landlord trying to rip me off.
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
