    Hello!,

    Just wondering if there is anyone who has applied to live here next year?

    If there is, have you received any more information after sending your deposit + contracts back? :confused:

    Starting to worry about the lack of post through through my door!

    Thanks!

    Yep I got my contract back, an information pack, a goodie bag with cable street branded hoodie and baseball cap and £20 HMV voucher plus an invitation to a meet and greet garden party.

    I've chosen cable street too but had no welcome pack!

    I've read things on fb about poor management such as poor internet/hygiene/cleanliness of flats and am quite worried about this now as it is a lot of money to stay there! :/

    What are other people's experience?

    Hi Emily,
    I've lived at Cable Street this year and hopefully will be staying again next year if I get the results I need. I was a bit apprehensive before I moved in becuase the management changed in August and I saw some stuff on facebook, but I think a lot of it wasn't true and was posted by the previous staff. My flat was clean and I haven't had issues with my internet connection. I've loved living here and haven't had any problems. you'll really enjoy living here

    Thanks Sarah!
    I'm living in the older Georgian block and when I went to view the flat, the shower was mouldy but they said that they would fix that by the time we moved in. I also would like to ask, is there a cleaning service and how good is the complaints process for cable street? Such as broken items or even noise?
    Also how are you coping with your finances as it's so expensive!
    Thanks again

    Hi Emily,
    I'm living in the Georgian block this year! All the flats were cleaned over the summer before we moved in and our shower had the grout and seal redone last year so I guess they will do that to all the showers that need it. The maintenance is pretty good, we've not had many problems, the dishwasher stopped working but it got replaced and things like light bulbs have been changed straight away. There's an out of hours number which you can call for emergency maintenance and noise complaints, which is quite good
