  • I would suggest that you look at the local authorities’ website or to see what the crime statistics etc for this area are. You can also look at the local tourist board website which gives you an up to date overview of the area. I would also visit the area and ask some locals.

  • I bought a flat in Thames View Estate in 2006 as a rental investment and till to date I have never regretted it. The area has gone through a lot of changes incl. My building and from my knowledge the area has a lot more to come. Hence the reason I'm holding on to the flat. The residents in the area does give of an impression that crime is high but I can honestly say from what crime was in 2006 and now it has decreased. The 3 high rise buildings (which have now been knocked down) housed a lot of the riffraffs but now they've left the area has very much cleaned up. The tenant I have is a professional and has lived in this flat for 3 years now and has expressed his astonishment for the areas fast growing change and has mentioned he has never experienced any problems. Good luck in your decision.
