Good not excellent

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Sep 2022

We are very happy with the flat and the building in general. However, the state of the common areas is frankly very concerning for a new building.
The common areas such us stairs, entrance, etc are showing a high level of despair after only 3 months of living here. The property management is not cleaning the place to a high standard as require for the service charge paid.

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

Good aspect – walking distance to the New Malden high street and a good 15 mins walk to the train station.

Bad aspect- the shops close to the building are not very appealing with the exception of Aldi supermarket. Hopefully the council will revamp the area at some point in the next years.

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

The whole building complex is not finish yet so the noise is very disturbing from 8 am to 5 pm.
Also I was expecting rules from the management company to maintain the building in good conditions as this affects the reselling price.

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

Building management not great. As explained in the previous points, the building after only 3 months of living here is not in a good place. Some walls have been badly treated, stairs and entrance not properly clean, lift dirty and was broken for a whole weekend and this only happening in the first 3 months.

Love It!

Review Date Sep 2022

My wife and I bought an apartment in Kingston East at the beginning of 2022 and we are so happy we did. It is a lovely place to live. We love the clean cut and fresh design of the building. The building and property management is also very good. It is. I’ve to have a lift and it feels like a secure building.

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

Living here feels safe. Not much noise as the windows are double glazed and parking availability around here is pretty good

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

That there wouldn’t be that much storage space. That you cannot select any optional extras. That not many kitchen cupboards were added.

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

Any issues or after sale queries have been resolved timely and professionally.

Perfect location

Review Date Sep 2022

Perfect as what we wanted. We got enough storage space which is unique and feel quite lucky when compared to our friends flats. We wanted a balcony to road facing and that’s what we got. I must say balcony is big enough to have a small parties for 5,6 people .
The communal garden is just amazing how they look after the plants, and builders been organising some social activities and barbeque for all the residents. We invited our Friends as well , it was great to meet all the flat mates.
Am so glad we choose this builders

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

I am actually working at Wimbledon and my husband is working at Kingston hospital, so we were actually looking for a flat in middle or should be in a walking distance for one of us. Kingston East fairview is just exactly what we looked for. 15 min walk for my husband and its just 30 min for me by bus. Bus stop is just down the flat so I am so happy. Aldi is just near door step , which made our life so easy. All the necessary shops are actually near by. There are shops till 11 ,what’s else we need. There is park 3 min walking distance, great for kids and we have a central garden , just loving it. Our friends been coming and they just loved it. Schools are nearby , at the moment we have no kids but this is great for future.
I am actually so glad .

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

I can’t think anything like that, they actually explained and gone through pretty much everything.

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

I must mention this, we had a 2 small minor issues, I did a booking which is convenient for both of me as am working Monday to Friday. I got perfect timings as per my request and on time it was sorted.

The design and facilities of each flat are great

Review Date Sep 2022

The design and facilities of each flat are great.
The ongoing construction of the development is not avoidable as this project is not complete but having working men and their loud machines is very inconvenient and disruptive.

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

New Malden is a great location. The public transport links are great with the bus right outside the development, but the traffic noise can be quite loud

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

Whether there is temporary parking for family or friends.

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

Yes – all issues were sorted immediately and thoroughly. Jason was friendly and speedy to get things organized.

Really good design.Enough storage spaces.Communal garden available.Good big balcony. Location is perfectly great for getting all the public transports. It’s just 15 minutes walk to my work, which is really very convenient. Just 7 min walk to railway, and there is park opposite to flat which is great for kids. Mostly Aldi is just near door step, which my wife is just loving and just makes our life so easy. Richmond Park is just 20 min away, we just loving it . Builders are real great, I really appreciate social activities they been organised , was great to meet our flatmates. So happy that we won a bicycle , from the kingston east bike challenge.
We are really happy .

Building management aspect almost never hear from them

Verified Resident

Review Date Sep 2022

Building management aspect almost never hear from them or don’t have follow up on requests.
Issue with not being able to allow visitors through the second door door at the entrance without going down to open the door for them, although this has recently been fixed with 2nd intercom.

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

There is train access although is quite a distance away. Good access having Kingston & New Malden. Main road is very loud during the day.

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

Number of facilities & the nearby access shops/bars.

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

Has been some follow up on certain issues raised, but not been followed to completion and still awaiting their response.

I am happy with everything

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Sep 2022

I am happy with everything. The only bad thing I could say is that the elevator broke already even though it is a new built. However, it has been repaired after a day or two. Customer service is okay as most of the time they respond quickly and there are times that they would ask you to wait for months but overall okay for me. Delays are reasonable and valid. Therems also a common garden area if you want a breath of fresh air but no gym facilities. Overall I am satisfied with customer service. Just no visitor parking space if you didn’t buy parking space.

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

The area is really nice, plus the flat design is nice as well. Bus stop is very near, Aldi and Matalan is just a stone away as well. The only bad thing would be the limited parking for visitors I guess.

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

Nothing really as everything has been discussed to me prior to moving in.

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

Yes. They have responded to me however with my balcony issue they told me it will take time. But overall okay for me. I would recommend them and the delays are understandable and reasonable.

Kingston East – a great home!

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Sep 2022

Building management is quite efficient given rising costs of energy these days. The inner courtyard is near completion and looking much better than expectations. And the sales team (Sinthia and Qasim) is just the most friendly and relatable group of people!

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

Loving the Kingston East development being right next to an Aldi, within walking distance of all the good things Kingston and New Malden high streets offer! Bus stop right in front of the flat, which is super convenient any time of the day!

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

Would have been great to know who will be leasing the commercial spaces in the building

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

Always addressed my concerns on a timely basis, including following up after resolution!

Great development in a great area

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Sep 2022

Development is generally five stars in all areas – the only negatives I would currently give are that value wise it could be better (but where around London couldn’t be), and some weird design flaws in the kitchen and bathroom that have had to be rectified at personal cost post moving in. Otherwise building is maintained well, property managers give good communication and everybody so far seems friendly

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

Aldi close by and variety of smaller corner shops. Post office across the road and short journey to Kingston and new Malden town centres provide everything you’d need

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

I wish we had known that there are little to no pubs in the area – the closest pubs are around a 20 min walk away at least

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

Yes they responded to issues we had with the fridge door
