Review Date Apr 2020

good build quality, did not have many problems in 5 years. The facilities are good (bin room , bike store, lift and communal areas), customer service is poor, taking ages to respond to issues. The Cleaning company is completely ineffective, external windows are rarely cleaned and with no soap.

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

vibrant community, many services and transportation options. very noisy in the weekends and traffic most of the time (even late at night)

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

– the noise of the buses parked outside, at all times of day and night: the drivers keep the engine on when they should not (there’s also a sign – ignored – for the drivers to turn the engine off)

What is the best feature of your home:

very well insulated, energy efficient, excellent windows

Area is amazing, management and other build is terrible

The individual flats are made at a high quality. The design of the building is disappointing as they didn’t think to add any communal areas within our building which there is plenty of space to do so. The management is very disappointing they over charge for things you just don’t see happening. The cleaning of our windows is the terrible there is no caretake you can call on to help. Last they have made huge error with the cladding and trying to charge everyone in the building for when they have sold us a dangerous property not live in.

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

The location for access to public transport is fantastic. The local shops and bars/restaurants is also fantastic.

Negative is that there are crack heads everywhere begging for money and fighting each other. There arrested many times but nothing is ever done to permanently remove them.

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

How unclear the service charge is and how they don’t have any real answers to why we are being charged what we are.

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

Slow or just not bother to follow up. Turn around only happens if your shouting and screaming at them after the 4th time you asked to resolve your issue.

Good quality apartments and fittings. Award winning. Good built and size for fiance and myself. No concierge and security is a bit lax. Good light coming in, housing association could be more communicative.

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

Good vibe, good local amenities and transport connections. Too many cars and high pollution

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

Service charge has gone up by 40% since 2015, should be more honest
