Stepping out of Canning Town station one of the first things that strikes you is Discovery Tower; a 17 storey residential tower directly facing the station. The tower dominates the regenerated Hallsville Quarter, with an estimated 600 million invested into the quarter and an overall investment of 3.7 million into the Canning Town area you can understand the enthusiastic demand for the apartments. The developers Bouygues UK and investor Mountain Capital have put on the market 160, one, two and three bedroom apartments with over two thirds bought off-plan.

If you are buying a new property it is crucial that you have the property professionally snagged before completion, if this is not possible then before the apartment is occupied. This will reduce the inconvenience to the occupier and also to the contractor who will still have their teams on site. If the snagging inspection is conducted after the owner or tenant has moved in to the property this can create the uncertainty of who caused the issue or snag and subsequently who is liable.
