The design of the property is ideal, over 3 floors with 4 bedrooms, streets are well kept as most houses are privately owned. There is no building or property management, houses have been in place for 10 years. The trees in front of the houses are now really overgrown and can imagine being an issue if not maintained, they started off as a small tree when the property’s were originally built.

Please tell us about the good and bad aspects of living in your local area:

In great location for Manchester City Centre and Salford Shopping Centre. Lidl located within 3 minutes walk and a small complex with hairdressers, cafe and shops across the park. Frequent buses to take you to the city centre. Parking is fine everyone has a driveway, however the street is full, lots of commercial vehicles and people using the street to commute to Manchester, makes it difficult to get off your driveway and not a pleasant sight when you look out of your window. No real road traffic noise as cul de sac location. Bin collection is reliable and occurs every Wednesday. No real concerns on anti-social behaviour.

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

Initially the property developer was fixing snagging issues, no contact made in approximately 9 years.

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

I wish there was some form of parking restrictions or rules on commercial parking as this is the only real issue with the streets.

Great for value.

The meter readings needing to be done outside is frustrating but aside from that the design is pretty good. The sunlight windows in the kitchen area do leas to very hot room in the summer. The tree at the front of the property does reduce light into the master bedroom.

Please tell us about the good and bad aspects of living in your local area:

Very close to Lidl and very close to town. If you aren't on the edge of the estate it is very quiet. Never had issues with bins or parking. Could do with a bar, cafe or restaurant being nearby.

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

Always dealt with them swiftly but there have not been many in our time at the building.

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

How close it is to Jerusalem Wetlands! They are a lovely place to visit.

Nice houses, good location!

There is little if no property management for people who have purchased their homes, however this may differ on those rented properties. The design of the house inside is spacious and has plenty of storage which is excellent for a fairly new build. Ground rent is on the high end in comparison to other new builds and there is not much space to develop:extend to existing properties. Parking is not a problem as each property has its own driveway.

Please tell us about the good and bad aspects of living in your local area:

The location is ideal for families and young professionals, it has great transport links to Manchester and Salford. You can walk to Manchester City centre in approximately 20 minutes, this is noticeable with people using our streets to park and walk to the workplace. There are a couple of parks within close proximity and a small shopping complex (the Vibe) offering a cafe, hairdressers, convenience store etc. There is little, if nothing in the way of anti-social behaviours, and no traffic noise in the proximity. The primary school is a stone’s throw away, high schools and colleges are slightly more distanced.

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

Initially when the houses were being built the management team were fantastic and fixed any unresolved problems. Now the houses are nearly 8 years old there is no contact with the building management.

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

Measure spare room size, ensure small bed fits. Check en-suite to ensure extraction fan is located. Check sustainability of fences. Check appliances are working properly including boiler.

Good and only getting better!

With many surrounding developments on Chapel Street and Mocha Parade there's a offering of shops, bars and restaurants. Access to the town centre is easy whether walking or getting the bus, however it's actually a nice walk.

Please tell us about the good and bad aspects of living in your local area:

The area has had various crime reports in the past but having lived here 6 years now I have never seen trouble of felt unsafe. I walk to and from work in town on a daily basis. We love it here. Neighbours are friendly and there's enough space in the street for visitors parking.

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

We were told Mocha Parade would become a new development but after years that's only just happening.

Please share one thing (or more) which you would change about your development:

The garage door has had to be repaired twice after breaking.

I like the house very much it's got a private garden and it's close to town, what's not so great is the the security level of the area. In regards to the property management that's very poor we always have issues, stuff doesn't get fixed, we almost for flooded last time..

Please tell us about the good and bad aspects of living in your local area:

Close to town, not very safe

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

That the management is very poor

What is the best feature of your home:

The size and garden and proximity to town, that's about it
