Edgware is a suburban area of North London that sits mostly in the borough of Barnet but also with a small section in Harrow. Edgware offers a safe and relatively green option for famililes and young professionals, with a great selection of semi-detached properties to choose from. The last two stops on the Edgware branch of the Northern line serve the area alongside Canons Road and Queensbury stations on the Jubilee line.
DONT BUY A STRATA HOUSE
Plumbing, Windows and brick work very poor. customer service is shocking. Raised concerns about vents that were defective and looked to be faulty.
The vents had a massive gap between the windows and the actual vent allowing a large draft through even when vents closed. This was the case on every window.
Window fitters came to look at the vents whilst I was at work. I came home to be absolutely shocked to find they had sealed all of the vents with silicone, which is clearly not what should have been done Obviously I wasn’t happy with this and raised this further. They then came back out and agreed they needed replacing. This was then raised with Strata who decided they couldn’t be bothered to resolve this and just closed it down. When I chased this up I was told I’m now out of warranty and will not be taking this further. I have giving them ample opportunity to resolve this just to be ignored.
Therefore I’m writing this review and will now be opening a claim to take this to NHBC and a small claims court. If you want your house to be bodged then buy a strata house. If not then I’d advise you to stay well away. They also managed to build my garage 3ft higher than it should have been meaning I have 2ft of foundation sticking above ground and again failed to rectify. I’ve had multiple leaks from toilets and sinks, 4 attempts to fix a leaking toilet from day one. Kinked pipes which I’ve resolved myself. MeadFleet the ground works company will just increase there prices whenever they want. This has increased by over 100% in 2 years and quality of the work is poor. Still rubble all over the place from 4 years ago.
I’ve been dealing with customer services who bare face lies and will not return any calls. If someone would like to contact me regarding this feel free.
