The flats in Norwich house are modern. The communal areas are well maintained, with cleaners coming to clean hallways etc around once a month.

There have been numerous issues with the front door to the building which has caused security concerns on occasion, however, these issues have usually been rectified within a day or two.

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

There is a good variety of independent shops, fitness studios/gyms and eateries along streatham high road. There are a number of small grocery shops nearby (Tesco express, co-op, Sainsbury’s) which is convenient but it would be good to have a larger supermarket within walking distance as the smaller stores can be quite limited in their variety.

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

Good- the building feels very secure.
Bad- I was told that there were gas charges for the building a couple of years after moving in after initially being told that bills would be for water and electricity only.

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

I had previously raised issues with regards to gas bill payments about which building management were reluctant to share information on.

I like the security with the door and I like that we have a concierge. I dislike the security regarding the lifts – I wish that we could have a security system to enter the lifts. If someone access’ the building they can use the lift.

Another thing I dislike is the rubbish from the supermarket next doors. The smell does not bother me, but I have seen foxes eating the food waste.

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

i like the options of restaurants there and it helps that there is a gym next door. Green around.

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

There was issues with the gas the first year when I moved here that we had an issue with.

Review Date Jul 2019

Build quality is good. The flat is way to small. There is a cladding that has been an issue for quite a long time which is on the building manager to solve – and financed with government money. But it has taken a long time,

I like the bars and restaurants here. I miss having a tube station.

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

I had a good overall information and knowledge about this development.
