thank you for your reply. That's fantastic news. I did try contacting L&Q but they were reluctent to give out any information what so ever. Do you know what L&Q longterm plans for the estate are?
It would be good to know what style/colour window frames and doors they are going to use so we could match that. I hope they don't go for the cheapest and ugliest option- those house could look fabulous. Take a look at Donnybrook Quarter, Parnell Road in Bow or Alexandra Estate in Camden (both very des res estates).
We have no idea the state of the roof of the house we are buying and hope the whole thing won't need replacing. Do you know if they have got a lot of problems?
We were told that the insulation in some of the houses was not very good so will have to look into that too.
A real shame they are not painting the outsides of the houses. A cheap thing to do that would give the maximum impact- something to push for for sure.
Really looking forward to moving to the area and meeting some of the residents.
