Great Bobs but frustrating company

Verified Resident

The BOBs at Walthamstow are great and dedicated to the tenants at Fizzy Walthamstow. Unfortunately we have had a lot of issues with Fizzy changing the terms of our arrangements since we moved in in January 2018. Due to this our experience has been tarnished somewhat. The costs associated with living in a Fizzy building are significantly higher than other rented accommodations in the Waltham Forest area, something we felt we were misled on when signing up. Carparking: The biggest contention at present is the price for parking, as we are in a new build we are exempt from street parking in Wlatham Forest which costs £35 per year for our car. When signing up we were given a deal as we had a budget to work with, instead of paying £100 per month per car. George Amos suggested and confirmed in writing that she was able to do a deal so we pay £50 per month per car. This was a deal that was to the length of our 36 month contract. In January 2019 after the rent went up in line with RPI, we were told we were now expected to pay £100 per car from now on. After some back and fourth with the BOBs, the last word was car parking charges would increase in line with RPI. This isn’t correct, as the cost for us is doubling. This is a topic we are still questioning and will seek further advise if not resolved between us. I believe there needs to be more transparency when signing up to live at a Fizzy apartment especially when buying add ons such as carparking. A side note to this the car park is not well kept, we got a puncture as the needles put up to deter the birds were scatted on the floor. Along with rubbish and other items constantly littering the area. We also had the misfortune of being locked out of the car park, were had to pay for an on the day train ticket to Devon for a funeral we were going to. Fizzy did repay us for the tickets (via the help of Jason and Meena) but we got no compensation for all of the premium numbers we had to call trying to get the matter resolved. The issue was the emergency exit button failed to work along with the fob. My partner still has trouble using he car park, sometimes the fob doesn’t connect to the sensor. She works in Cambridge so if the car is locked, she would be unable to get to work. Kitchen surfaces: Kitchen surfaces are very easily marked. Tenants were told in December (this would be 11 months after we moved in) not to use certain cleaning products (products with bleach) or we would loose money from our damage deposit. We emailed back stating this can’t be the case, if tenants were not aware of this prior to moving in. We sent photos of the light white marks on the surfaces and were told this isn’t caused by cleaning products but caused by burning the surfaces which is not the case. This matter is still unresolved. Building Noise and intercom There is constant building noise of the Taylor Wimpy flats have made living in our apartment unbearable at times, we have had very little support from Waltham Forest or Fizzy as a company in getting this resolved. We all work full time and this impacts all aspects of our lives. Building works would be happening during the weekends from 8am. Weekdays as early at 7am. The intercom for our block is constantly broken, due to lack of street lighting and groups of men smoking and drinking in the evenings. I feel unsafe going down at night.

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

I like there is a shop and tube station near by. I don’t like the lack of doctors surgeries and dental practices. The shops seem to be over whelmed by the new arrival of tenants in the new builds.

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

I wish I had known about the car park situation, as mentioned previously there is an ongoing dialogue about what we were promised and the service we are receiving. I also wish I knew dealing with Fizzy as a company was more straight forward.

Good experience, especially compared to my last landlord

Verified Resident

The apartments are new and nice. My building has a separate indoor entrance vs. the other buildings, you have to go through a metal gate, which always slams each time some enters/exists (quite annoying). They allow dogs which is a bonus because that was difficult to find in London.

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

It’s not really developed; you really need to take a bus or train one ride to get into town to get real groceries, restaurants, stores, etc. It’s very industrial at the moment…There isn’t a nice place to sit down enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and some cake. Less of a community feel.

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

I wish I would have known about the delays in getting things repaired; it is not fast and the communal areas including elevator and hallways are often dirty in between weekly cleanings and no one does anything about it even when it’s reported.

Good concept and friendly staff on site who try to help if any issues are raised. However communication and follow-up with residents needs improvement, and some health and safety issues need urgent attention.

Verified Resident

The idea of Fizzy living is good and I like the concept of it. It is a nice idea to have a central reception/office, along with communal space with refreshments etc as this is not something I’ve come across before, however I’m not sure many people use it in practice – preferring the privacy of their own flat. Location is good in terms of nearness to the station and walking distance from Walthamstow Central. The area is still largely under development, so there are a lot of building works currently underway which is less desirable. It’s great to be so close to Walthamstow Wetlands. The design of the building is quite good in terms of layout. Living in a 2 bed flat, it is great to have 2 bathrooms and a balcony, as well as storage. It is also good having our own parking, as well as bike storage, both of which are difficult to get in London. The spec of the flat is not that high though, with a lot of cheap materials etc and I think some of the finishings have been done in a rush. We have had a few maintenance people in to check water temperature etc which is good, however the follow up to put things back in place has not really happened and we often have to chase things up ourselves. A recent issue with a power failure in the secure car park caused us a huge amount of hassle, stress and money. We were unable to get our car out at the weekend when we were supposed to be travelling to a funeral, and were unable to reach any of the staff to help or to get an emergency maintenance person on site in time. In addition, and more worryingly, when we used the emergency exit button in the car park, it failed. This is a major concern which we will be following up on and makes us question other health and safety aspects of the building.

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

It would have been useful to be given a more definitive answer to how long building works will be underway on the development. I knew the area relatively well before I moved, but it would have been better for the staff to sell the area more (in terms of nearby amenities and the Wetlands for example).
