I bought my flat using Help to Buy and moved in in February 2018. Help to Buy was an easy process. I feel that I got value for money as I offered just below the asking price which was accepted and the solicitor cost was also covered – I wish I had used their free mortgage advisor as I had used one recommended by a friend.

I didn’t hear much directly from Redrow as all the communication came via my solicitor and mortgage broker. There was definitely some miscommunication as when I moved in I then found out the flat had been available sooner. The gym was delayed and I was nagging them as to when it would be completed – it is now but I haven’t actually used it! The complex is new and spacious along with brilliant transport links to get you into central London quickly.

When I moved in I ordered furniture in advance and the concierge stored this for me and helped move it into my flat which was really helpful. There have been quite a few changes to the concierge and customer service teams over the last year but it hasn’t caused any issues. There were a few minor issues with the flat – the loo seat broke and there was a leak by the side of the bath but these were quickly replaced and additional sealant added. On the balcony there was a bent bar but Redrow said that was an issue with the manufacturer – I am not too bothered and have put a plant pot in front of it. The management are really helpful and things are quickly sorted.

I own a one bed flat – there are LED lights in the kitchen and it is all very modern, the lightbulbs haven’t gone yet over a year after moving in. I kept most of the neutral décor though I painted one wall as a feature wall.

There is a communal garden which is well kept, I never use it but I can often see families using it with their children. The only negative if you have a car or deliveries is that the main gates can only be opened by concierge who are here 7am-7pm, so if you have someone coming outside of that time they can’t drive in. I don’t drive but when I have friends visiting they park on the road nearby.

However it is annoying that when bringing people over you have to go down and buzz them in every time they arrive.

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

The transport links in the area are very good. There are some shopping centres and restaurants nearby but overall the area is residential and family friendly and I have had no issues with my neighbours.

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

I didn’t know that you had to go downstairs to buzz people in and out when they arrive and the fact visitors/deliveries can’t drive in when the concierge are not here.

I like my flat. It is pretty new and I feel I got more than enough space. I am very happy with the facilities and the design.
We got really nice big windows and a balcony with a great view The balcony is not the biggest one but there is wnough space.
Its is also very peaceful in general inside the building. Neighbours are very quiet and I cannot hear any of them from inside my flat which is good.
I am also happy that I have never had any maintenance issues. I would say building management is alright.
If I could change something I would maybe make it a bit cheaper, but the price is not bad.

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

Transport is pretty good. You got Park Royal station nearby, and also buses around the development.
In general it is very quiet. I would definitely like having some more shops around. I usually go shopping to ASDA, but it is about 10 minutes away by bus.

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

The development was what I expected. A nice flat in a peaceful area.

I like my flat. It is spacious and quite modern. The design and the facilities are all very good. I do not have a balcony but we have very big windows, with a great view. During sunrise it looks amazing.
We had some maintenance issues, though. It happened that the flat downstairs could hear every time we flushed the toilet. Of course this was quite annoying for them and it took about a month to get fixed.
Another issue is with deliveries. The building’s garden feels very safe as we need to tap to get in. However, as access is quite restricted, many deliveries just choose to leave parcels on the side. This of course is quite bad as anyone could take them.
Overall the development is good, although some things as what I previously mentioned could be improved. It is good that residents get asked their opinion on this matters as I reckon this market studies can help developers know what to do better. I am happy to have written this. The girls from Home Views were very friendly and helpful.

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

The area is alright. It is very green and peaceful. Personally zip find it very safe, but sometimes during the weekends there are teenagers that come into the area drinking and smoking. As there are families and kids living here, some people feel uncomfortable with that going on.
There are not enough shops in the area as well. If you want any big supermarket you have to go all the way to North Ealing.
Transport is okay. The bus stop is right outside the development which is good, and the station is not too far.

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

I wish I had known there were not enough shops in the area, as I need to go to the supermarket in North Ealing.

Expensive for what you get as a housing association tenant

The apartment is average – it is moderately spacious. It is a new build but the quality of the housing association apartments is pretty poor. For example, there is a problem with mould in the front entrance of the building but instead of fixing it properly, the building management company just painted over the mould. There is also a really bad smell that comes from the kitchen sink so every few weeks I have to buy chemicals to put down the drain to get rid of the smell. Likewise the water smells funny so I have to buy drinking water from the supermarket. Other issues include no parking for housing association tenants so I had to get rid of my car and the concierge is never really there – whenever we have an issue there is no-one onsite to talk to. Housing association tenants are also not allowed to use the gym.

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

I like that there are good transport links – the tube and bus station are really nearby. There are also lots of convenient shops nearby. However, I really don’t like that there is a big drug problem in the underground car park opposite the Lyon Square residence – this is a real issue as I have kids and so I have to take them on a different route to the high street to avoid the car park.

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

That the quality of the building would be so poor and that the building management company would be so bad at resolving issues
