Chances are, if you’ve never been to Harrow before you’ll have only heard of its famous occupant Harrow School. And you’d be forgiven. With ex-pupils including Winston Churchill, Richard Curtis and Benedict Cumberbatch, it’s easy to see why the establishment’s been given more column inches than the rest of the area over the years. But Harrow has lots more to offer. It’s a location with many faces, just 13 miles from Central London. Close to sprawling countryside, and neighboured by Stanmore, Hendon, Wembley and Ruislip. Read on to discover the developments that have been rated the best places to live in Harrow. In addition, read reviews from residents who own or rent in Harrow.
The area was sold as a nice area but it’s full of crime. The shops around here are average.
Please review your development:
Redrow promised residents that social housing would not have access to private facilities to which they do. We bought our property in good faith and this factored us into buying here but they lied. We have nothing but trouble, inc drug dealing etc.
Redrow have built this development poorly and yet to rectify a majority of the issues.
We have had mould/damp issues, staining on pavements, AOV noise in the corridor, doors not working properly and acoustic sound issues etc. In addition, 6 bikes stolen from the bike store due to Redrow allowing a big enough gap for the thieves to claim over etc.
Redrow also set the energy standing charge of £1.14 a day via switch 2.
Also the management company Fell Reynolds owned by QDIME. The management company Charge extortionate Fees and do very little.
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
The service charges increased on the first bill.
High standing charge.
Poor customer service
