5.0 out of 5 stars All boroughs covered 16 May 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This very well written book contains surveys of ALL the London boroughs. With the outer boroughs enjoying a massive renaissance, this full coverage is of genuine value. The book is very evenhanded in its judgments about the area options available and gives credit wherever it is due. What becomes clear is the theme that one should investigate the outer regions of Greater London - it's often possible to find an architecturally identical property for virtually half the price just by looking a few miles further out. Local restaurants and coffee bars will often be branches of exactly the same chains as found in the inner areas. Meanwhile, outer London borough schools are much better and crime levels are lower. A real case of getting more for less.

4.0 out of 5 stars First review 2 April 2008
By Mike Johnson - Published on
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Useless 25 Sep 2007
By Shana M. Hunter - Published on
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.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great for acquainting yourself to the neighborhoods 3 July 2008
By Cantab Books - Published on
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.
