Friendly neighbourhood

High quality finish overall. Not repairs required so far. More than enough storage and space. However very limited parking, only one space per flat, amd barel any visitor spaces too…
nice and clean area though.

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

Despite atm robbery nearby, feel really safe.. cctv is good amd areas well lit. Quiet area, nothing too disruptive.
Easy commute to office round the corner.

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

Parking inspectors too harsh… given a fine when heat caused my ticket to roll up…

Nice area

The area is good value for money, I’ve got friends in the area which is nice. The commute into central is quite long but not unbearable. The area is peaceful if that is what you are looking for (not much night life in and around the area) would have to take a long journey

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

There is no pub!

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

I did my research, but perhaps the extent of the lack of nightlife

Nice and quiet

I can say that I like the area in general, it is fairly quiet. It has a good value. The flat is properly designed and quite spacious. There are good transport links to the city, but I would like to have more facilities as a gym. We had some crimes happening but after that it’s getting better.

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

I think this is a fairly Quiet area but we don’t have any gym closeby

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

Nothing really that I wish I had known before to move in

Decent value for money but not special

The area is overall decent quality and value with a relatively safe and comfortable neighbourhood. Everyone gets on here without any issues. The main problem is the property is quite far from central London and being remote there is not much access to variety of shops and restaurants. We were promised the new fast Cross rail and Elizabethan line would be built by now but for past two years nothing has happened.

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

It is a safe and friendly community to raise a family and also for those without families. It is quite safe but could improve a bit.. The main problem is this area is far from central London with not much access to local shops and far from high street chains of restaurants.

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

We came prepared and knew all the essentials.

Nice residence.

Verified Resident

There is a growing community, the areas only getting better and better for residence, it’s nice and quiet with nice flowers and playgrounds for children. There is also a big Sainsburys which is usefull, I wish that there was maybe more restaurants however.

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

Sometimes the community is a bit too much, there is not as much privacy as you would like, only a few shops

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

It’s a new build, so there wasn’t as ,Uchida information as you would have hoped .

Decent areas

Verified Resident

I was a looking for a one bedroom flat in a very specific area and had a few friends that were living here so decided to buy in one of the new phases. The sales team at Bellway Homes were very good, answered all my questions and the purchasing experience was very easy – however once the booking fee and contract were exchanged it deteriorated.

The flat I chose was listed as a disabled flat, I didn’t need a disabled space but liked that the bathroom was a more generous space but it didn’t come with a shower and the developer said they wouldn’t put one in – we went back and forth and eventually they did. Another example was requesting wooden floors instead of carpet and in the end I was allowed but had to pay a lot more. The kitchen was standard and I wanted white and a few small tiny things changed but they wouldn’t allow this.

The timeline was as promised and the after sales lady from Bellway Homes was lovely and handled everything well and quickly as well as explaining how everything worked. We had two small issues when we moved in – the first was that the extractor in the bathroom was really noisy and the second was a leak from the sink, both were quickly fixed.

After the initial move in the management was handed over to a company called Ringleys. They have promised lots of things that they haven’t done, the main one being CCTV cameras which the residents wanted as mail was going missing and this hasn’t been delivered. From speaking to other people there seems to be no good management companies in the UK. When the service charges were due to be paid and people then looked into what was promised and what was delivered there were lots of complaints. I actually don’t think they are too bad as they cut the grass, clean the windows and the inside of the buildings. They do a decent job for what we pay. If something needs fixing owners expect it to be done immediately but it does get done even if it takes a while. The main issues are the lack of cctv, issues with parcels and where they can be stored and garbage getting left out. We don’t have a concierge service.

My flat was delivered as promised and as advertised, no issues and everything covered by warranty. The wow factor for me and the biggest reason we bought was the open plan kitchen which makes the living area seem so much bigger. The reason we bought new build was because the bedrooms and storage is so much better and bigger than older houses.

We have no issues with noise and the walls are well insulated – we have an owners group and we communicate well and let each other know if we are planning to have a party or anything going on but even with the doors closed you can’t hear anything. There is a decent community here and dominated by South East Asians and Eastern Europeans, we all get along and help each other out when we need something. There seems to be a lot of people like us – younger generation of first time home buyers who have put all their savings down to buy.

If we move it will be to get more space as we are in a one bed flat and I would look to buy within the development but I would prefer to buy through another developer. I believe there is no perfect developer and would now be mentally prepared for the process of buying. I have been looking in Uxbridge and would now read reviews of what other residents are saying before I buy again.

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

There is very little around but it is a good commuter town as we can get to London in 20 minutes and most people I know working in London. There are a few restaurants and pubs and it ticks all the boxes but there are not a wide group of things here. One big incident was when the Sainsbury cash machine was bombed to get the money but bar that incident it is a safe area. There are kids and teenagers loitering around which some residents complain about but I think it is just kids being kids and not a big issue.

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

I wish to have known That the crossrail is delayed.
