Reviews - What do customers think about Buying or Renting a Home in London 2006-07: A Survival Handbook?
Great for acquainting yourself to the neighborhoods Jul 3, 2008
Contains in-depth looks at each of the neighborhoods; very useful when cross-referencing with the online realtor web sites when hunting for property. Contains some filler as well, but on the whole very useful if you're moving to greater London.
First review Apr 2, 2008
Well's like they say one man's meat is another one's poison. I read several books on buying a place in London and I keep coming to this one. Gives all the facts I need for making a first time decision in buying a house. Most of the other books were for tourists. This book gives detailed facts including council tax rates for each borough. Extremely handy. I wish I could have the info placed on my computer.
Useless Sep 25, 2007
Unless you don't know how to buy or rent a place AT ALL, like--don't know how to negotiate something--this book it useless. you'd be better off with a phone book with vague descriptions of each region. It doesn't help you as a newbie figure out the best place to live. It's more of just a passive reference--an accumulation of random data. Do not buy--I returned it.
