Hampshire is a county in the south of England that borders Berkshire, Oxfordshire and Wiltshire. It has some beautiful towns such as Winchester, Basingstoke and Romsey which are perfect for those who want to live near London but without all the hustle and bustle. Hampshire’s largest city is Southampton with over 200,000 people living there.

The development is very central to Basingstoke with bus station and train station and shops nearby. Basingstoke is a thriving town and on a direct line to London. Excellent place to live
Please review your development:
This property is a fantastic deal for the renter. It was originally a bank and converted to what were advertised as luxury flats. The work however was unsatisfactory and Seven Capital failed to put right snagging issues. There are leaking windows, the lifts regularly fail and in general the finish is poor. This is greatly to the advantage of the renter because rents have been held down far lower than predicted.
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
I wish I had known that the value of the property would fall on purchase and would not have recovered years later, that no one can get a mortgage so it can only be sold by auction and at a loss
How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:
The after sales staff are lovely and are very reassuring that issues will be resolved but they no nothing so to be blunt they unwittingly lie. In the end there is help for small easily resolved matters but for major issues there is no help
