    I always thought ground floor and first floor apartments are bad security wise. you have to keep your balcony closed all the time(for security reason and becuase of mosquitoes). my ideal apartment will be on 3rd floor. not too high (in case lift is not working, you can climb stairs). and high enough so that someone will not be able to climb in balcony and amount of mosquitoes decrease with height.

      Ground floor - Big yes. The reason any passer by can peek into your house. You can't leave that vacant for long duration at a stretch. Very risky.

      First floor - Less than Ground but still yes. The reason is easy stair case access that causes unwanted people movement on first/second floors and also can help in runaway easily. And of course, balcony access is easy and can't keep windows open all time for security/noise reasons. I live on first floor.

            Actually I booked first floor ,since the PLC was same for first and second(How dumb I was ), but now I am having second thoughts about it.

            Since in Logix County the First floor is not even 10 feet high.

            Either I will have to go for a full length grill on possession or need to put some other kind of security device ...

            I am more worried about the access through Balcony ...

              Not really - you will find it easier to sell

              All balconies need grill anyway - to keep children from falling

                I mean full length , top to bottom , so that no one can enter it from out side ...
                I am not sure , even that would be allowed as it would be a change in the facade ...

                  when I lived on 3rd floor I had a full length grill from top to bottom for kids - I will always have it in my flat - unsafe otherwise - kids play and get exited, cant trust their judgement

                  I plan to do it with or without society permission. One can also put in glazing for the same effect - but heats up in summer
