The Best Renting Experience

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Aug 2022

I have lived here for more than a year, and it has exceeded all my expectations of a “smooth” renting experience. The property is exceptionally well maintained (it was almost like a brand new flat when I moved in). And apart from the spacious living area and the good quality of all the furniture and fittings, the management team really stand out as exceptional. They have been nothing but a pleasure to deal with and does make life a lot easier.

Excellent, well thought out facilities like secure mail box access, roof top communal areas, access to an electric grill etc makes this a comfortable home.

Any maintenance work you request is carried out impressively fast by the on site team, and when it requires more time, I was always kept informed.

Overall, an excellent place to live. With the opening of the Elizabeth line, rents in the area has gone up more than it used to be, but even then, I really think that it’s a great value for London.

The only negative is being locked to one gas (electric can be changed) supplier… They use a communal heating system, and I don’t think it is the best value for money…. with the energy prices going up and set to increase even further, there is no option to switch to a supplier with lower rates.

On the flip side, the insulation is excellent throughout the apartment.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Excellent transport links with the Elizabeth line less than 5 minutes walk from the building.

The high street is also less than 5 minutes walk away. With access the most stores you need. There is an ASDA less than 10 minutes walk away….

In terms of Food, you have access to really good chinese / Indian restaurants and the usual fast food chains like KFC / MCDonalds, all within walking distance.

Parking is available in the building, but it costs £100 a month which is normal for the area. In terms of traffic noise, I guess you will probably only be hearing the trains as the flats are right next to the track… But given the excellent sound isolation in the apartment, I barely notice them with the windows closed.

I generally feel safe going out at night in the area, but it can get a bit dodgy past mid night

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

I’d try to sign up for a long term contract that limits rent adjustments for the whole term, with the current rate of inflation, I don’t think it would be long before the rents hit 2k a month in no time.

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

Always, and very quickly. They have an excellent maintenance request system via the tenant portal

Great team, great place to live,happy to BeHere!

The design is modern with high quality fixtures and fitting, the flats are rented furnished with high end furniture. The team at BeHere ismade out pf professional and friendly people, any request you may have they are very flexible and try to go the extra mile for you. It is indeed a great value for the money you pay. The community is of a very diverse background and you cand find the most surprising nationalities and occupations. From pilots, flight attendants and movie cast staff to doctors and even athletes. It is a secure gated complex, with cctv on every corner. The are is not the best due to some shady stuff going around in hayes, but the location of the building is great for commuting because Hayes&Harlington train station is within a 5min walk. Overall i would say this is the best place around Heathrow airport for people working there and even for people working central London because you are just 20 minute train ride away.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

There are a lot of shops in a 15 min walk radius from the building, inclufing ASDA ,Tesco , Lidl etc. The transport links sre great you have the Hayes&Harlington station and a variety of buses.

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

I would have liked to know aboit the constructions in the vicinity, hopefully will be done soon.

APO Kew Bridge

As long-term residents of APO Kew Bridge, we have had an incredibly positive experience living here. One of the standout factors that make our stay enjoyable is the friendly and helpful staff. They have consistently gone above and beyond to assist us with any issues or concerns that arise. The staff at APO Kew Bridge has always been approachable and responsive, making us feel valued and supported. Whether we have questions about community amenities, maintenance requests, or general enquiries, they have been quick to provide solutions and ensure our needs are met.

One of the highlights of living at APO Kew Bridge is the impressive range of amenities and communal areas available to residents. The facilities provided here are not only great for personal use but also perfect for socialising and enjoying time with friends, particularly during the summer months.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Brentford offers a multitude of positive aspects that make it a great place to live. One of the notable advantages is the abundance of green spaces. The presence of parks and open areas creates a refreshing environment, perfect for leisurely walks, outdoor activities, and spending quality time with family and friends.

In terms of accessibility, Brentford benefits from excellent transport connections. The proximity of Kew Bridge station and Gunnersbury station makes commuting to other parts of London and beyond convenient and efficient.

Overall, Brentford offers a peaceful and family-friendly environment, ample green spaces, and excellent connectivity.

Living in Apo Kew Bridge offers the perfect blend of location and lifestyle. The greatest advantage is undoubtedly its prime location in Kew, which provides an ideal setting for outdoor enthusiasts and those seeking an active and healthy lifestyle. With its beautiful parks, gardens, and proximity to the Thames, there are endless opportunities for outdoor activities such as running, cycling, and leisurely walks. On the other hand, if you prefer a more laid-back atmosphere, Kew’s pubs and local establishments offer the perfect spots to unwind and socialise with friends. Whether you’re in the mood for adventure or relaxation, Apo Kew Bridge’s location caters to diverse preferences, making it a great place to call home.

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

The building management has been very diligent in maintaining the premises. Recently, they have shown great attention to detail in addressing instances of inconsiderate behaviour in the common areas.

The building maintenance team at APO Kew Bridge has demonstrated a proactive approach in ensuring the cleanliness and proper functioning of the shared spaces. Their commitment to upholding the upkeep of these areas greatly contributes to the overall living experience.

Great staff, Nice Building, Good Transport Links

I have lived at this development for 2.5 years and don’t really have a bad word to say about it. The process of arranging a viewing and moving in was hassle-free, and since then the staff have been very accommodating and helpful – especially the property manager Kash Sharma. Whenever I have a query or concern the staff reply give me their full attention and always make sure to address it quickly.
Since moving in there’s been a couple minor problems with our flat (e.g. incomplete sealant in a bathroom or a loose window lock), or with the development (car park shutter breaking), but in every case the building management have made sure to resolve it quickly and not let it become an inconvenience for the residents.
Last, but not least, a roof terrace with electric bbqs, ping pong tables, and hammocks was constructed this past summer. This is a great area that will adds value to the development.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

The property is a few minutes walk away from Hayes and Harlington station, which will get you to Paddington in around 20 minutes, Ealing Broadway in 10 to get the tube, or can take you to Heathrow in around 15.
There’s also a number of bus routes that stop by the station e.g. a bus to Heathrow that’s cheaper than the train.
The high street has your standard types of shops, and there’s a good variety of food stores within walking and driving distance.
I’ve not dined out in Hayes, and only ordered a couple takeaways, but again there’s a good variety of cuisines on offer.
My only dislike of the area is that it can be slightly messy and ‘rough’ in areas, mainly because of the area’s lower-class and migrant demographic.

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

Having lived in Hayes for a year prior to moving into this property, I was aware of how erratic the traffic can be. New building developments close to the train station have made this slightly worse.

Luxury apartments until you move in

Building management is poor and treat this building only as a workplace and have no concern that this is our home. Complaints seemed to be palmed off with the response “nothing they can do”. Some of the issues we have faced since living here are as followed. Door on the apartment building has been broken for 4 months and the slamming of it has woken me up every single night of those 4 months. There was no urgency from the staff to get this fixed. The door has since been “partially” repaired but because maintenance cannot do a complete job it has been turned into a exit only door. We were informed that the windows had been cleaned but it looks as though they were done with muddy water. After sending pictures of the windows to management I was informed they would look into getting the cleaners back but I have heard nothing. Due to faulty door handles I have been locked into my bathroom and bedroom. It is only by pure luck that I had taken my phone in with me to ring for help. Management cannot seem to grasp the dangerous nature of this when I know it has happened to several flats. Our front door lock has also broken and management seemed to think the right response was for us to ask reception every time we wanted to be let in and out? We took to fixing this ourselves which we should not have to do. I pay for a parking space and have access to a personal car and a works vehicle. After asking management for both plates to be allocated to my bay I was told this is not something they can do and I now risk being fined every time I use my company car. This is very stressful and inconvenient. The heat from our oven is making the cover on our dishwasher bubble. Maintenance told me that is what my fault for opening the dishwasher mid cycle something I have never done? They have not returned to address this. There is consistently dog poo on the roof garden and when a bin has been suggested to management they replied they couldn’t do it. Very unsure why. We were also promised a sky lounge which after 8 months of living here looks no closer to being completed.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Location in Liverpool is good. Some recents incidents of anti social behaviour and people breaking into the apartments and damaging the property. Bikes have also been stolen/damaged. Traffic is noisy and building works opposite start at 7am everyday

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

Quality of building management

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

Some issues have been responded to but it does not seem that any have been resolved
