Don’t even plan to move here! We were one of the first tenants five years ago, when this complex was a nice pleasant place to leave. But in the last one year(especially few months) it’s a horror. In the middle of December none of us (tenants in this buildings) had hot water/heating for over 2 weeks. Rubbish not collected most of the times. This cute little Green park /play ground for kids now used by junkies and street kids smoking weed in the middle of the day. At the moment tenants have no water in our flats for over 5 days now (no bath/ no cleaning/ no washing laundry) . None of the times sufficient resolution was made by the estate management (Rendnall&Rittner).
Please review your development:
Your estate management team is highly unprofessional and the development is rubbish. Council flats have better quality. We lived here for over 5 years because we loved the location and flat was cozy. But now we feel very disappointed in a middle of winter and pandemic we have no access for water, can’t even flush the toilette. And the estate team have no emergency plan or resolution for this situation?
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
If I know that we will not have access for basic things for weeks : water, heating I would never move here
If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:
FIX THE WATER SYTEM, you can’t sell flats with no running water
Resolve rubbish collection
Make your security team work for their money, stop letting junkies use the public area
