Hammersmith & Fulham is neighboured by posh playground Kensington & Chelsea. And while it shares its sibling’s gorgeous terraced townhouses and designer shopping, this pocket of West London is edgier and way more affordable. Read on to discover developments that are the best places to live in Hammersmith & Fulham. In addition, read reviews from residents who own or rent in Hammersmith & Fulham.
We chose this location due to its pet-friendly environment and the promised opening of premises downstairs. However, over time, the pet-friendly atmosphere diminished, and the promised shops never materialized, leaving the area without any good stores.
Compounding the issue, a significant number of residents seem to harbor animosity towards dogs, leading to conflicts. The situation worsens as these individuals, often with unsupervised children, contribute to vandalism in the area.
Safety concerns escalate with drug dealing and use in the vicinity. The presence of a halfway house in the street below led to personal conflicts. Regrettably, the area has witnessed violent incidents further highlighting its unsafe nature.
Please review your development:
Structural problems within the buildings, characterized by seemingly cheap construction, exacerbate our dissatisfaction. Frequent flooding in the flats and pervasive black mold on the walls pose health risks. The building manager, consistently fails to provide assistance, as evidenced during a recent water leak where our water was cut off for three days. In desperation, I had to resort to asking neighbors for water, and the compensation offered was minimal.
Adding to the distress, the managerial approach has been consistently unacceptable. Collectively, the diminishing pet-friendly environment, safety concerns, structural issues, unhelpful management, and abusive behavior create what I feel to be an untenable living situation.
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
I would have liked to know that the management is useless, that the building would not be as pet friendly as we were initially told, that no shops would open near the area, that there is a lot of crime in the area and that public transport is not that close.
What is the best feature of your home:
The best thing about buildings is that you can have good neighbours if you are lucky.
