Brixton station

Lambeth’s north

In its northern pocket, you can take a stroll along the waterside. Here you will discover big-hitters like the National Theatre, the Tate Modern, and the Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre. All of which are neighboured by a good mix of pubs and bars with a front-row view of the river. Lambeth Palace is another local star, a spectacular Medieval structure and the home of the Archbishop of Canterbury.  The Imperial War Museum also provides a lovely, moving day out; a fitting tribute to those affected by the past world’s conflicts.

Vauxhall new flats

Cultural melting pot

There’s a hypnotising, cosmopolitan feel to these parts. Places like Stockwell and Kennington have a Latin flavour, their high streets packed with cutesy tapas joints and Portuguese establishments serving fresh seafood. Over in vivacious Brixton, the area’s Afro-Caribbean roots shine, with reggae bars playing exotic beats until late, and an amazing foodie scene that incorporates street stalls sizzling with specialities like jerk chicken and ackee and saltfish. Hootananny is a much-loved hostel-come-nightclub that works to showcase the area’s diversity, with events dedicated to everything from hip-hop to salsa. And we can’t talk about the area without mentioning 02 Academy Brixton, an award-winning venue for music, theatre and comedy.

Imperial museum

Property & transport

Lambeth’s residential options are vast, ranging from swish riverfront apartments to elegant period townhouses. Whatever you’re after, expect easy access to London’s centre. Three tube stations – Lambeth North, Waterloo and Southwark – get residents from A to B via the Northern line.

HomeViews reviewer says…
“The location is central and very well connected within easy reach of much of Central London both on foot and via the tube. Traffic can be quite congested and slow, there is also a fair amount of noise from the streets.”

All Fine

Please review your development:

add MORE CAMERAS PLS, My kitty died but there is no evidence that your workers caused that accident, they got into my flat and open all the windows and the balcony for repair the facilities (tubes?), we wasn’t at home and haven’t been able to check the emails, i think they scared my kitty she fall downstairs and died. When I was held accountable, They was very unreasonable and said that because there was no camera, I could not prove that ur stuff opened the windows. The workers was throw all the kitty’s things on the balcony, plus they saw how my cat died and they found her corpse downstairs, Your workers called me how bad accident happened, when her corpse was on the way to the vet.
Iam really angry, and miss my girl very much.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

BADDDD I hope to know in advance that the staff are irresponsible and unreasonable when bad things happen.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

My cat died, the stuff was not be responsible for the accident, with bad attitude to address my problems.

Modern Development in Central London

Review Date Sep 2021

Bad: very close to the railway and in the middle of the construction. It’s very noisy and dusty in the area at the moment
Good: central Location, big grocery store just downstairs, a private garden and gym

Please review your development:

It is a modern development which features nice design. Most of the flats have private balconies, private garden is a huge advantage. Commute to Central London takes just minutes.
Flats offer lots of space and light. Comfort cooling system and floor heating keep rooms’ temperature always comfortable.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

I wish I knew that the Landlord has ability to edit Inventory reports at any time and hold us accountable against different versions of the reports during check-out. I wish I knew that the Landlord will claim for any discrepancy with the Inventory report (which are full of obvious and outstandingly not-acceptable inaccuracies) at the check-out. I wish I knew when I accepted a favor from Maintenance team to move my sofa from one flat to another, that the Maintenance team will be so careless with my sofa. As the result of the help/good will favor which I received, I got my sofa with damaged leather and partially lost assembling details. I’ll never accept any help from the local Maintenance team in the future.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Outstanding inaccuracies in Inventory reports were not fully addressed and it required several weeks to chase the team over emails to get any response. The properties were not entirely cleaned when we moved in. I live in the flat for 4 months already and despite transferring the money to Landlord’s account, I have not received any signed Deposit Protection certificate yet. When I checked-out from the previous flat no check-out report was provided, I was not given any opportunity to attend the inspection, and the Landlord claimed for £500 without providing any quotes or adequate proof for the claims. I did not appreciate some of the language used in the emails either.

Very good location-wise.

Very good location-wise. Easy access to central London. Particularly with new tube service. Very convenient to have a supermarket so close by. However, there is continual building and construction work going on in Nine Elms which can be quite disruptive.

Please review your development:

Security of the development I think has been an historical weakness. Non-residents using gym facilities. Non-residents able to access buildings randomly. Smoking and littering are a continual issue in Haydn Tower. Garden on podium level needs landscaping but generally fine.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Alot of the development seems to be occupied by students. Nothing against this specifically as I know space is a premium in London but students tend to be alot noisier.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Yes, issues are usually responded within 24hrs of them being raised.

Happy living at Nine Elms!

Nine Elms is already a great place to live, and will only improve with the new Tube station!

Please review your development:

The design of the properties at Nine Elms Point is fantastic. We moved here due to previous noise issues with neighbors and have never faced a similar issue since. The facilities management team at Haydn Tower are particularly responsive, attending to simple tasks virtually instantaneously and helping us to resolve any small issues we have encountered quickly and with wisdom and kindness. We really love living here!

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

I think it is hard to really grasp from a viewing whether the building is friendly/neighborly and if problems will be addressed quickly and professionally. I am really happy that this all worked out so well!

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Yes, they have always responded extremely quickly and have fully attended to all problems/issues we have raised during our tenure here.
