I won't tell them anything then, dont want to stress them out for no reason. I can see in block 31 that they put all the boxes/mattresses in the apartments, it must be so frustrating to be so close to having it done...

Just get them to contact Vesta - I've found them every helpful. If they are to be delayed, they would get contacted!

They've contacted them already regarding the amount to pay (deposit + partial rent of April) but they don't seem to reply as fast as usual. This whole thing must be so frustrating for Vesta as they've always been on track, which is quite rare!

We are due to move into block 31 on May 1st... Hoping that there won't be huge delays !! Hard to know what will happen. Random question but are BBQs allowed ? Just before we go buying one!
Thanks,
Faye

It's not specifically in the house rules, but generally BBQ'ing on small balconies with timber flooring isn't recommended

Haha ok thanks, we are on the ground floor so have a terrace instead of a balcony but I know some apartments don't allow them as the smoke rises and can cause problems for apartments above !! I'll send them a mail and ask about it

I would say you would drive your upstairs neighbours insane with bbq smoke, maybe best to leave it

Hey all, myself and the partner moved into block 33 today! Delighted with the place it's beautiful. Few small marks and scuffs here and there and some questionable paintwork but lovely otherwise.

Two things im finding is the mattress is incredibly hard. I feel like I'm lying on the ground. I'm 8 stone and it's almost like I'm too light to sink into the memory foam. Did anyone else have an issue with mattress?

Also how do we get the "landlord password" for the pinergy app? We put the code and the meter number in but haven't got any further because it asked for landlord password. Contacted vesta but no reply, will run out electricity tonight otherwise.

Have you tried 0000 or 1234? They're usually the default passwords for these things.

I found the mattress really comfortable and not hard at all, weird!?
And yes I agree that the paint work is very questionable, I have stains on the floor that I can't get rid of, same on the radiators... It's a shame because it's otherwise beautiful indeed.

The password for the Pinergy app has something to do with the park name, but I forgot... fathercollins, collinspark... try a few combinations

That’s the first thing we noticed too, little scuffs and paint on the floor, bathroom tiles and door handles. Definitely looks like a rush job with the painting but not a big deal.

I agree about that Mattress, I was expecting it to be softer but it’s actually really comfortable to sleep on.

You probably have the password sorted by now but I’m pretty sure it’s ‘collinspark’

Do you mean the noise from the hot-press? That's the water heater.

Thanks, yeah it’s the noise coming from the heat recovery unit. It controls the aircon. It’s fine really just a little noisy.
