Nice Neighborhood – Poor Building Management

Verified Resident

I purchased my flat in the first property built here. Since then, I’ve had to deal with the obtrusive activity of nearby construction and an incompetent management company. The service fees continue to increase without reason, and the common areas don’t reflect how much we pay for these services. On the plus side, the nearby park is beautiful, and we’re steps away from a Sainbury’s Local. We look forward to forward to the construction coming to an end soon, but we doubt the property management company will improve.

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

Likes: Park. Safe. Easy access to public transport.
Dislikes: Property management company. Ongoing construction traffic. High service fees.

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

Service fees would rise substantially every year after moving in.

Great amenities and lovely view

Verified Resident

There is a good gym and also a pool as part of the development. I really like the views of the river from my balcony. My apartment is spacious and bright especially for London standards however I would maybe like some extra storage.

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

They’ve been great and have dealt with any problems I have had.

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

I like how close the river is and the amenities such as the gym and shops. The
transport links could be better as the stations are a little far.

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

Well-built flat, I love it!

Verified Resident

The concierges are great. The property is managed by L&Q. I like my flat. It is a good size flat, well built, very bright and very well insulated. My bills have gone down. I have a nice a view and a balcony, the living room is my favourite room because it is cosy and bright.

 

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

The area is convenient, I live and work only 3 minutes walk away from here. The transport links are not the best. On the weekends there is no boat connection and you have to walk either 12 minutes to the train station or to take the bus. The shopping amenities are basic. Southside shopping centre is just around the corner, which is nice. Marco Polo and the Cat’s Back are great places to eat.

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

I was living just around the corner begore moving in. I pretty much knew it all.

Very nice and quiet development

Verified Resident

I have been living here for 1 year now. It is very nice and very quiet . The restaurants and the pubs are not far from here too. My flat is very spacious, bright and the size matches my preferences. What I loved the most about it is the glazed wall, because it brings in even more light and you feel like living outside.

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

They don’t respond immediately, it takes them a week normally but despite of that they are very efficient.

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

The area is close to the park and the river, I love it! Sainsbury’s is the nearest grocery store. We have the Southside shopping mall close by too.

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

I wish I had known about the noise from the ventilation installation

Modern apartment, friendly staff

Verified Resident

I haven’t been living here very long however so far I absolutely love my apartment. It is modern and spacious and great for my dog! I love that it is by the river and the concierge have always been lovely when I have spoken to them.

What is the best feature of your home?

My kitchen, I love to cook and the space in there is amazing! I have so many counters for prepping food.

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

I like that it is a quiet area, however this is also not great as it isn’t close to a lot of places to socialise.

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

That the tube station isn’t very close, however it is right next to the river boat dock.

Great views from the balcony

Verified Resident

I really like the view from the balcony as it overlooks the river. The apartment is very modern, especially the living room. The whole place is open plan which is very nice. The concierge are polite and I have never had any issues with them. Also the car park is safe.

If there was one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be?

I would like another room that we could use as a guest room or for storage.

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

Close proximity to Sainsbury’s and other places to get food however it is quite far from the nearest station which is Putney Bridge.

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

How far the station is from the development.

Nice but could be more lively

Verified Resident

The development is very good, especially when compared to others nearby. The services are okay; the swimming pool has been out of action for some weeks now but in general the common places well kept and clean. The carpark is good and whenever there are problems with the lifts they have always been fixed quickly

If there was one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be?

I would like more life to be injected into the development. E.g. t would be good to add more commercial properties to the development e.g. another restaurant. Also there should be more affordable units that are made easier to buy to attract younger crowd to the area

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

Likes:

The gardens and landscaping are beautiful and there is a park nearby as well as the river.

Dislikes:

The area is lacking in public transport links. I also think there are too many buildings in the development which can be a bit of of an eyesore

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

Before moving in we were told there would be no more buildings being constructed but this wasn’t the case. Construction is still ongoing in the area which can quite noisy

Calm area

Verified Resident

The building management don’t respond quickly and they take too long to fix things, and when they do they come to fix it’s only temporary fixes. Nothing permanent. There’s also been a numerous amount of leaks in the building!

If there was one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be?

The gym! It hasn’t been updated with new equipment for 7 years.

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

Lie that it’s calm park nearby but I dislike the construction nearby.

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

That the Service charge would keep going up

Decent place to live

The development is really nice – not as swanky as some of the others around but it’s older & hence cheaper. It does lack the sense of community of some of the other developments around. The layout is bit sparse but the views from the front flats are great.

 

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

Dislike: The nearest tube is a good 15 minutes walk away which is not ideal
Like: Marco Polo restaurant is great

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

That after 3 years I wouldn’t have really met any of my neighbours

Lovely but a bit boring

It’s a lovely place to live, well connected within 10 minutes walk of transport but far enough away to be quiet. Nothing much to do though, but new cafés keep popping up. Good pubs and restaurants. Great facilities and well looked after.

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

It feels a little insular and the people in the management office can be rather unhelpful. One you get to know them it’s ok though. Bus never works.
