Staff is at service at all times, which makes you feel exclusive.

Verified Resident

Review Date May 2020

We are a family of four who were accustomed to living in a detached house with a spacious garden in our home country, Turkey. Considering the disadvantages of living in such a house with a high maintenance cost, struggling with vermin and pests and vulnerability, we decided to live in a flat here in Sutton when we moved to England. Before moving, we meticulously researched places where school offsted scores should be high and where crime rates should be low. Sutton came out from many resources.
Of the various alternatives around the area, No 16 Sutton Plaza seemingly has the greatest number of amenities in every respect as public, natural, safety and so on. This alone is enough to decide to move in. Over and above, you will see more inside. Staff is at service at all times, which makes you feel exclusive. Perfect sound insulation, adequate ventilation system and fabulous panoramic London skyline which, of course, is eligible for my apartment, Flat ## and the flats above us, are all the valuable assets of this development.
Nowadays we all feel tense, nervous and strained isolating ourselves during this lockdown. Under such adverse conditions having all negative feelings, you open the door and find three packets of quality teas on the threshold with a letter on saying good appetite. These people in the administration know how to make residents smile. We thank you very much for your generosity and efforts to make the residents join activities online to stay relaxed and well.
As for the cons, rental for a flat with two rooms is as high as a house with four rooms around the immediate area. It was much cheaper when we moved in June. House rentals in the area appear to have decreased.

Cordially yours
Mehmet Ozaksu

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

I should have learned whether the flat is eligible for homeoffice. Window cleaning twice a year is not enough for flats with huge windows.

What is the best feature of your home:

Day and night panoramic London skyline view seen from my flat makes me relaxed. Window frames are big enough to provide such a view.

Poor Customer Service

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Dec 2021

I have been living at the Well House for 6 months now. I will not be renewing after the end of my tenancy agreement.

Pros:
Good location, well maintained communal areas, spacious and comfortable flat.

Cons:
Very poor management and customer service and a constant struggle to get anything done.

– During our first month at the flat, we tried setting up Sky TV – Gave up after two Sky engineer visits and a couple of ignored emails to the residents team (The engineer said the fibre optic cable is faulty and needs to be looked at by the maintenance team – the residents team ignored our emails)

– We had heating issues – It took several emails and 3 weeks to get that resolved.

– We booked a cleaning service using the Well House Concierge app, they never showed up. Requests for a refund were ignored and we had to raise a dispute with our credit card provider to get the money back.

– We have been told that parking space has been reserved for us. Attempts to speak to the person responsible so that we can have access to the car park are ignored. The bay “reserved” for us is continuously in use by another vehicle.

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

Good location, easy access to transport links, close to shops and super markets.

Poor parking availability.

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

Getting maintenance issues resolved or access to the car park will be a major headache

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

It has been a constant struggle to get a response to emails and to get issues raised looked at.

I love the spacious design of the flats

Review Date Sep 2021

I love the spacious design of the flats, you get more living space and storage than you would elsewhere in other developments with smaller rooms. One of my favourite features is the gym which is included in the rent. I am impressed by the upkeep of the building and facilities, although the bin store needs sorting out.

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

– close to bars and restaurants on the high street and good access to other areas like Clapham, Balham and victoria with rail links on the doorstep
– downsides, noisy neighbours in the development with too many children in too small a space, there should be a limit on numbers of occupants per flat

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

The neighbours! Their kids drive me mad banging on the ceiling and screaming all day long

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

I haven’t raised any issues but where I have dealt with management it has been positive

Location and flat good, management not so good.

Review Date Sep 2021

On the face of it the building is well designed and offers so many great features. Overall we are happy with the flat itself.

Delve a little deeper and there are some issues with this development.

In the 9 months we’ve lived here the intercom has broken at least 6 times, causing issues with security, access and deliveries.

The fittings are cheap and have not been fitted correctly – we have been told this is why so much in our flat is breaking.

The concierge organise events but the key communications are not good at all. Our move in was so bad that we contacted head office and this wasn’t addressed either.

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

Great central location not far from London and green spaces. Parking for guests can be a problem as not much 24hr free parking.

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

Cladding

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

They are slow at responding and it takes pushing from a resident side to get anything done.

Convenient location, modern design and helpful management team

Review Date Sep 2021

The Well House is modernly designed, with large double-glazed windows, a sliding door at balcony and under-floor heating system. Our flat is furnished. We love the quality and colours of the furniture and curtains—cool and classy. The flats are equipped with Bosch hob, oven, washing machine and dishwasher. Good-looking and easy to use.

As for the facilities, there are 3 elevators in the building, an intercom in each flat, a parcel room, a gym room, a communal garden, 2 resident lounges with coffee machines and a secured car park. All maintained and managed well.

The Well House Team, especially, Jimmie, Jezza and Shanel are very polite, friendly, helpful and efficient. They attended to our problems and helped us solve them timely and in a professional manner. They even organise resident events for us regularly, like the recent Kids cooking competitions and BINGO night are amazing activities for us. We had great fun and enjoy being a part of the community here.

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

We’ve moved in 2 months ago, and the experience here at The Well House is wonderful. The Well House is conveniently situated at the heart of Sutton town centre, close to High Street, Sutton Station and a number of London Bus stops. You can find B&Q, several supermarkets, stationery shops, fashion shops, Post Office, banks …etc all within 5 to 10-minute walking distance. For commuters, trains and buses are easily accessible from here, and it is also a more environmentally-friendly way to travel around.

There are Italian restaurants, a Japanese restaurant, several cafes, bakeries and some nice pubs nearby. With 2 shopping centers and a cinema nearby, you can spend a whole weekend afternoon here.

As a family with kids, we value safety. The Well House is close to Sutton Police Station, so we can feel safe and do not need to worry about anti-social behaviours or crime at all.

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

I worried about not being able to buy stationery, books and household items before moving in. I wish I had known that The Well House is so close to High Street where I can get to buy everything I need.

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

i have lived in several of these new development buildings and by far the wellhouse sutton is the best of all of them! they have a lovely co-working space, gym and huge parking space. the building management is super helpful – especially with the new addition of jimmie! i would highly recommend this building for working professionals and families to move into with their fur babies (as it’s pet friendly)

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

love the area and the building! the parking was really spacious and the building is pet friendly. also high street is nearby with a beautiful park and train station is literally 2 minutes away. really recommend this for people to look into to live!

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

i wish i had known the changes that were happening within the building before we moved in because it would have eased our confusion with the changes in building management but as it is now it is fantastic

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

the building management is overall fantastic! they are quick to respond and help out as much as they can with your concerns

Great facilities including a gym with great equipment which is kept well maintained and clean.

Great facilities including a gym with great equipment which is kept well maintained and clean. Good quality appliances and furnishings in the furnished flats. Larger than minimum spec floorplan is a very welcome design feature. The building is new, clean and unspoiled. Excellent storage spaces in the flats and spacious floorplan. Communal areas are generally kept clean and well maintained. Downsides: rent is way way above average for the local area, noisy disrespectful neighbours and families with 3+ children in a 2 bed flat above us which is frequently used as a local kindergarten for many more. There is seemingly no limitation on number of residents per flat. Other residents frequently leave rubbish (although this is usually quickly cleaned up by management) and belongings in corridors which is a fire risk. Horrendous bin store disaster as rubbish is so infrequently collected that it accumulates so much that bins are usually overflowing on a typical day. Bin store stinks out the whole basement car park and is a health risk. Intercom on flats works inconsistently and is often broken.

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

Good
– Well connected train station
– Reasonable range of shops and supermarkets
– View of nesting peregrine falcons on the building opposite visible from out flat

Bad
– Longstanding issue with infrequency of bin collections at the development, buildup of rubbish in bin stores, bins kept outside, often overflowing
– Limited open spaces in the immediate area, unless you walk 25 minutes to Cheam or Carshalton
– Parking in the development is so expensive (over £100/pm) that it has disincentivised us from owning a car at all
– No hose in the basement to clean bikes

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

I wish we had known about the noisy residents above us. It’s such a shame as they spoil our quality of life in an otherwise very good flat and development.

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

Building management mistakenly switched our energy supplier and this took months to resolve as they were quite slow to respond. Other issues have been dealt with promptly.

Utterly shocking!

Verified Resident

Review Date Sep 2021

The design is such that you can walk in, steal anybody’s parcels and walk out! The security doors only work 50% of the time, anyone will let you in and the second door hasn’t worked in over a year. The so called secure parcel room is open and never locked. People throw bags of rubbish off their balconies onto the developments so called green spaces, the plants are all dead, they don’t clean it up which has lead to maggots becoming an issue. Plaster board walls, air in the pipes for over 11 months, apparently it’s an air ventilation problem, 😂😂! The ‘secure’ parking is the local place for a drug deal or a great place place for homeless people to have a nap, but you’re not allowed to walk your dog around it if it’s raining! The management are shocking. Stop coming up with fanciful new ideas to cover the mess that exists. That’s what Boris does and Trump did.

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

Transport links are adequate. There is a range of high street chain restaurants. Noise from the train track right next to you and the sirens from the police station on the other side is horrendous. You’re sandwiched.

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

Just how shocking the management are, screaming children, noise, there are so many things.

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

They have ignored me, I have had to email constantly and go to reception to get no response or answer, I have been waiting over 11 months now despite emails every week.

Review Date Sep 2021

Very beautifully designed building and good usage of space in all aspects. However, apartments, whose balconies open towards the rail track, are noisy and cause disturbance specially at night due to trains.
Building management is very courteous and polite. We had very smooth move in experience and I would thank Ms Jezza and her other team members to make it possible for us.

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

Excellent location. Close to high street and easy access to transport links by walk.
Reserve your Parking in the building early as it can take 2-3 months in waiting time.

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

Parking options
Basic information of Bus stations to move around within Sutton
Emergency contacts

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

Very courteous and polite. Prompt response from concierge team. We are thankful to Ms Jezza for making our move-in a smooth experience.

Modern buildings with lack of management and improving services

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Sep 2021

10 Sutton Plaza and the other buildings that are part of the same complex are new and modern. They seem to have never been finished though and lots of things that would normally work well in a similar building owned by the people living in it are simply ignored: there is no proper reception at the Plaza (the protective plastics are still on the front door/windows), the bin area is a complete disaster, the parcel room system doesn’t work and the intercom is broken most of the time. Worst of all, we have a feeling that the administration is always too busy to give us a good position about anything. There were improvements recently, but things still just don’t work like they should for the premium we pay to live here. The communal areas are pretty dirty and it’s expensive to have a parking (or a pet!) There is zero sense of community in the building as well, which is very odd provided that there are several families with children.

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

We are pretty close to Sutton High Street and one could find almost everything around here. Sutton Ct Road is very busy and can be noisy most of the times but there aren’t traffic jams. The region lacks a good park at a walking distance (15 minutes or less), but it’s fine if you cycle or drive. We feel safe and there are good schools around. Connections to the city are ok (32 min to London Bridge). I don’t feel like there is a strong sense of community here and it’s hard to make friends with neighbors.

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

I wished I know that the ventilation system uses a lot of electricity. I wished I know that for 300+ days of the year the balcony is useless because it’s very windy all the time. I wish I knew that the management team would have such a lack of clue about how to run a building that is safe, clean and welcoming to the tenants. I wish I knew that having a pet would cost me £70 a month (which is currently the reason why we don’t have one). I wish we had a better introduction to all the facilities, including the garden at the 9th floor. I wish I knew that the furniture was so weak and the meatresses couldn’t be replaced (they are really soft and of poor quality).

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

Until maybe August this year (2021) any email sent to the team was not responded without chasing. That has improved recently but their answer not always mean a resolution. Nobody calls me to discuss anything and I don’t feel like my opinion on the previous survey was valued. I hope they put more effort on making the basics work and real events to integrate the community, and less on online bingo stuff.
