There are a range of people living in Pulse Development, families, singles and couples and in the two years that my boyfriend and I have rented, there has been a number of new commercial units that have opened. This includes two supermarket local stores, 3 restaurant/ cafes a gym, a chain coffee shop and a bakery. With more units to come. The apartment that we rent is furnished to a very good standard.” – Kate L, resident at Pulse

Beautiful, neutral decor development with great access to tube and overground

Review Date Sep 2020

The development is very beautiful, with large balconies and lift access. My only issue would be that the paint used on the walls is prone to cracking, and the bathroom is not tiled on the walls, so you cannot attach the shower head to the wall. There is a weekly cleaner who looks after the communal areas very well and she’s also a very lovely person!

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

The area is very accessible with good bus routes, which gives easy access to tube and overground services. There are many large supermarket chains near Wood Green station, as well as more niche markets for local cuisine.

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

The petrol station across the road is quite noisy at all hours, however the windows are very good at blocking out noise when closed.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

The paint on the walls, I wish they would’ve used something of better quality as it is already wearing away in certain spots.

Manager Response

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback, we’re glad to see you’re enjoying the location of your new home and your private outdoor space. We appreciate your comments on the issues you have experienced and will take this into consideration going forward.

Good place for kids

This is a nice place for kids. There is a playground and lots of grassy areas. I dislike that in my building there are a lot of stairs, It would be helpful if there was a lift.
Also, the walls are very thin. I though because it was a new build that it would be quiet, but I can hear other tenants up and down stairs.
My landlord is very quick at solving issues. However, there is a rat problem in the development that no one can seem to fix. They always find a way in.
There is a major issue with cars driving down the private road like it’s a highway, you have to be vigilant about the cars at all times as my kids playing like playing in the playground in which they have to cross the road to get to.
There is a school very close by, a 2 minute wall that is very good if you have children.

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

I dislike that the shops are all very far away.

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

That I would hear noise from neighbours up stairs.

The flats themselves are nicely designed, modern, quite spacious and each has a nice sized balcony.

The flats themselves are nicely designed, modern, quite spacious and each has a nice sized balcony. The plants around the perimeter road are nicely kept and it does look classy. There is a nice courtyard, however this is not particularly well maintained by the management company (see my third point). Neighbours are friendly and in the main do not generate any excessive noise. This usually comes in the form of locals riding mopeds on to the development and courier drivers – however this is nothing too major.

I was very impressed with Fairview in the lead up to the purchase and communication post sale. I was also very impressed with them in terms of getting snagging sorted. I had several issues including over sensitive fire alarms (which were eventually moved) , a faulty bath panel and a few scrapes on the wall. Fairview ensured these were sorted quickly.

My only real overriding negative has to be the management company (KFH) who are nothing short of an embarrassment considering the monthly sum we pay them (in total about £220 a month). It takes them ages to reply to you queries and actually getting something resolved is always a painful process. I’ve had various issues ranging from incorrect and confusing billing to not being able to get into my block as the lock on the door was damaged. I had to frequently enter and exit through the bin store over the course of about 6 months. The parking situation is a joke as well. There now only appears to be 2 visitor parking bays for the whole of the complex (a development with over 200 flats I believe). They also want £15K per parking space. There are a lot of free parking spaces on the development and thus more visitor bays shouldn’t really be an issue – but for them it is. Quite simply they’re not good enough.

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

Well located just down from Crystal Palace and not far from Penge. Good transport links into London Bridge, Bromley, Croydon and Gatwick Airport. Lots going on in Palace itself – pubs, restaurants, cafes etc. The park is also very nice that houses the National Sports Centre with a lot to do.

The development itself is very nice and that does encourage locals that do not live on it to visit – which I do find a little irritating at times.

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

The management company (KFH) as described above

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

The management company (KFH) as described above. I live on my own and work hard to pay for a nice place in which to live. Parting with over £220 a month would be a lot easier if I felt that I actually got something for it.

The walls are hollow, can’t hang up Anthing on the wall as it may not hold and come crushing down.

I like that it’s clean there’s a cleaner responsible for the communal areas which keeps it clean. I like the consierge downstairs gives that extra added security and atleast I don’t worry about missing my parcels as the consierge can sign them for me! But that comes with a cost though it’s annual maintenance fees are too dear as a result of that! Every fixture on the property is on the cheap- basic end say for example the taps, toilet, kitchen cabinets, windows, bathroom, carpet, everything-even the walls feel hollow when you tap them, can’t hang up Anthing heavy on the wall as it may not hold and come crushing down. No sound proof I can hear my neighbors putting a plug in the socket and switching it on and off. May be they are heavy handed but I mean come on! On a Sunday afternoon having a nap- I’m rudely woken up my banging from the neighbors I think they are installing a new floor or something guessing from the pattern and sound of the rustling.

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

It’s two minutes walk from a bus stop that has not 1 but 3 night buses so you can travel anytime if you don’t have a car. Within easy reach of about 4 rail stations. It takes 15 minutes on a train from Victoria to East croydon station it’s unbelievable! It’s within easy reach of local shops and there’s a Tesco local that’s open till late even on a Sunday. You can pop out fetch a pint of meal and be back in your apartment in under 10 minutes! Lots of shops and restaurants within reach and good connecting transport links with Wimbledon, Brixton, Gatwick, tooting m, Victoria to name but a few

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

How expensive it would be in the long run

Great experience for a first rented home in London

Pulse Development was one of the first new developments to be completed in the area around Colindale Station. There are now many other competing developments that are either completed, nearing completion or mid development. There are a range of people living in Pulse Development, families, singles and couples and in the two years that my boyfriend and I have rented, there has been a number of new commercial units that have opened. This includes two supermarket local stores, 3 restaurant/ cafes a gym, a chain coffee shop and a bakery. There are also more units yet to be opened. The apartment that we rent is furnished to a very good standard, something that is hard to find in non development units and the furnishings in the units are of a high standard. We have had one rent increase in the last two years but this was to be expected considering the number of commercial units that opened in our first year here. We have really enjoyed our time here and have just resigned for our third year.

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

There are a number of building sites close by which can make the area look messy but it doesn’t really matter as you know the development will bring new commercial units. Really good transport links and close by to other superstores. Brent Cross is around the corner which is the closest retail stores slightly far but common in North West London.

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

In the developments to get high speed broadband you can only have one provider or pay more to get other providers to link to the one providers cables.
